The Way of Light is a non-dual approach and path for
those who wish to practice without ritual, religious dogma, or cultural
bias. We utilize only the essential and most direct methods for
attaining Enlightenment in this very life.
"I believe deeply that we must find, all of us together, a new
spirituality. This new concept ought to be elaborated alongside the
religions in such a way that all people of good will could adhere to
it." The Dalai Lama
Presenting Dzogchen, Mahamudra and Zen teachings in a generic and
secular manner will enable a much larger audience to be able to take
advantage of these most direct and powerful methods. This is our
In addition many other mystical traditions will be discussed in terms of
their essential similarities regarding the realization of the non-dual
state of Knowing Awareness.
The overall goal of this website will be to offer theory
and instructions so that anyone can easily put these methods into
practice for themselves. We will offer support for anyone with
questions or in need of specific guidance by e-mail.
I will be including several core
teachings from Mahamudra, Dzogchen and Zen traditions. I feel strongly
that many of these traditional pith instructions have the ability to
awaken those who are ready. That is why the great masters left their
writings for later generations and is why they have been preserved and
handed-down for centuries.

Here is a teaching that I often share in my retreats:
In a well lit room or out of doors in the day-time;
close your eyes and notice the effect of the light on your eyelids. It
seems like you are seeing an orangey colored light from inside and
behind your eyes.
What is it that is "seeing" that light on
the inside of the eye lids? It may seem like that awareness that is "seeing" is
just a bit behind the eyes looking forward at the light at the eye lids.
Examine that awareness that is "seeing" that light. Does that
"seeing awareness" have a shape, substance or form? Is it someone else
that is seeing or is there a strong and perfect certainty that the
"seeing awareness" or "knowing" is "you"?
Even though this
"knowingness" or "seeing awareness", seems like it is what you are, can
it be found to exist as some "thing" or entity with shape and form? Or
is it just a naked, impersonal aware "knowing"?
Recognize this ungraspable
pure "aware knowing" to be your true nature. Its always present and
knowing in all experience, as all experience. Recognize this
"aware knowing" again and again until you are able to rest in just this
pure and vivid transparent clarity, stably. The mind with all its empty
stories about this and that will dissolve into this knowing clarity and a
very special wisdom of self-recognition will arise that cannot be
described through words and concepts.
The next phase of practice is about noticing the inseparable nature
of the "aware knowing" and its field of experience. It will be seen
that there are not two aspects present: the "aware knowing" and
"experience", but rather each experience is actually the "aware knowing"
appearing as experience. This is fully discussed in my book with a
means to see this directly for oneself.
