Exploring the Heart Essence
a workshop with Zoran Josipovic, PhD
Sunday, 5 May, 1:30 - 5:30pm
True Heart is both the path and the goal of contemplative practice, a secret doorway into the unity of Being that is free from dualities of self vs. other, good vs. bad, and material vs. spiritual. This workshop is an opportunity to explore an effortless yet deep practice involving meditation, movement and dialogue, whose aim is to facilitate genuine contact with oneself and others. New findings from the field of neuroscience will provide contemporary perspectives to age-old questions.

Zoran Josipovic, PhD, is Assistant Adjunct Professor for Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, and the Director of Contemplative Science Lab, Department of Psychology, New York University. In his previous life he worked as a clinical psychotherapist, a bodyworker, and taught meditation seminars at Esalen Institute. With his wife Judith Blackstone, he is the founding director of Nonduality Institute, Woodstock, NY. His research interests are states of consciousness cultivated through contemplative practice, what these states can tell us about the nature of consciousness and its relation to authentic subjectivity, and what relevance this may have for understanding the global and local organization in the brain. Zoran is a long-term practitioner of meditation in the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, Zen and Advaita Vedanta.
When & Where
Welcome to Nonduality Institute. We are a non-profit center in New York City dedicated to the practice and scientific study of nondual awakening.
We offer a direct method of nondual realization that opens the body, heart and mind to nondual reality. This method includes practices for body-mind integration and for applying nondual consciousness to deepening relationships. These practices can help with both the initial realization and stabilization in this fundamental aspect of being.
Our scientific research into the neural correlates of nondual realization contributes to the understanding of the nature of consciousness, and the brain’s functioning in optimal states of wellbeing. It can demystify this advanced stage of human development and thus make this realization more accessible.
