Advaita Sundays

Philosophy of Advaita

Our discussion groups are facilitated by long-term members who have practised meditation for over 40 years. Participants are encouraged to share personal experiences and insights. 




These Sunday morning gatherings get to the very heart of non-dual teaching.

They are intended to be both inspiring and practical. A theme may be introduced or a question may spark a spontaneous conversation. Many long-term members of The Study Society have been regular participants of this group for some time but new visitors join every month and all are most welcome. The group is guided by Philip Marvin who has over forty years of experience as both a student and teacher of Advaita.

Past recordings of meetings are available – please contact Philip directly for access:

Advaita Sunday with Norman Alderton



Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences and insights of the non-dual philosophy, calling on teaching from whichever source is found to be of value.

Sometimes a topic is selected to focus discussion but no extensive theory is offered leaving attendees to speak from their own awareness at the time. The emphasis is for the simple principles to be restated and appreciated in the company of like-minded people. Many who have shared these principles find they have universal application. It is not a question of getting somewhere but realising who we already are; it is not a state of mind but a transcending of mind.

Non Members of The Study Society are welcome to attend these gatherings which are found to be of particular help to those who have spent some time investigating the non-dual concepts previously and wish to test their understanding with others. Participants often find that the discussions give them greater meaning within their lives and inclusivity in society.
