Vedanta – Self Inquiry, The Big Picture w/ RAMJI (James Swartz)

September 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - September 17, 2017 @ 5:30 pm UTC-6

True Nature Healing Arts is honored to host Ramji again for this very special weekend event!

Coming from an impeccable lineage (Swami Chinmayananda) and endowed with over 40 years of teaching experience in this age old tradition, Ramji unveils this timeless knowledge with clarity, candor and humor. He has become one of Vedanta’s most powerful voices in the East and West.

This course unfolds the timeless, complete teaching of Self inquiry (i.e. traditional non-dual Vedanta). Beginning with an analysis of our motivations for seeking enlightenment it proceeds to debunk many modern enlightenment myths, provides a clear definition of enlightenment, discusses the requisite qualifications, the need for an impersonal teaching and a professional teacher. It then discusses the nature of the self and finally introduces the various techniques (yogas) that remove the obstacles to one’s understanding of oneself as ever-free limitless non-dual ordinary existence/consciousness.

Special Note About Event Pricing:
The ticket price for this event is valued at $250 for the entire weekend. However, in honor of the lineage, all teachings are offered by donation to ensure that everyone is able to access this knowledge. The $35 registration fee is simply intended to off-set the costs to True Nature for hosting this live event. Please make donations to Ramji before, during, or after the seminar by going to While there is never a set fee for Vedanta seminars, your contributions are greatly appreciated and extremely helpful.

So, what is Vedanta?

Vedanta is a time-tested means of knowledge that leads to understanding, which removes suffering, revealing the true nature of self-limitless conscious existence.

Vedanta is a complete teaching of how the dharmic field works and how to become free of the suffering that is so prevalent.

Right from the beginning, the teachings share that you are whole, complete and good.

If you have toiled for years in the spiritual marketplace and are tired of digging shallow wells, you’ve come to the right place. Traditional Vedanta is truly a final teaching.
