What does nondual mean?


  1. Thank you Michael & Loch. The Podcast on Effortless Mindfulness with Loch Kelly was very informative and helpful. It spoke to some questions I’ve had for some time.

  2. Hi Michael, thanks for this podcast, I went to meet Loch around 2 weeks ago at one of his events in NYC. I found that this podcast explored some of the most deepest aspects of the practice which are rarely talked about by other non-dual practitioners and for that I am genuinely grateful! I just had a some questions about the practice and I was wondering if I’d be able to ask you them over email, please let me know!

    1. Thanks, Hamza. It depends on your questions, honestly.
      Go ahead and drop me an email.

  3. Great interview. Nice to hear from other mutants who started meditating in the mid teens and got hooked. 🙂 Can you point out a few others in your podcasts that I can listen to?

    1. All of them, really, since I got hooked on meditation in my teens. 😉
      As for the interviewees, I’m not sure who else would or would not fulfill the requirements, since I haven’t always asked.
      Mukti, for sure.
