In his meetings, Rupert explores the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Mystical Christianity, Sufism, Zen etc., and which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience. This is a contemporary, experiential approach involving silent meditation, guided meditation and conversation, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. All that is required is an interest in the essential nature of experience, and in the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.

The Essence of Non-Duality

Highlights from the Belief and Beyond Belief Festival at Southbank

On the last day of the Belief and Beyond Belief festival at Southbank, The Study Society was invited to create an experiential event for the general public in the Clore Ballroom. This vast open space lies at the epicenter of The Royal Festival Hall in London.

Over 500 people joined us in an integrated journey of stillness through a non-faith sharing of Rumi poetry, Mevlevi Turning (Whirling Dervishes) Kirtan Chanting and silent meditation. Here are some highlights.

Gerry Webber the station manager for Sino radio UK happened to be in the audience that afternoon and asked us to come in and talk about the history of The Study Society. Click here for his radio interview with trustee Margaret O’Keeffe.
