Radiant Mind – The Effortless Way of Non-Dual Presence
With Peter Fenner, Marie Barincou, Stephan Wormland
Course language English
September 2013 – August 2014
The unconditioned mind is pure, unlimited and beyond all ego identification. When we rest in the unconditioned mind we become a boundless source of love, wisdom and joy; our entire existence is suffused with intimacy, peace, energy, bliss, and deep creative insight.
The conditioned mind thinks, gets confused, has preferences and experiences pleasure and pain. In Buddhism, the experience of the unconditioned mind is called the ultimate medicine because it is the only lasting solution to the experience of lack and inadequacy.
Radiant Mind is the result of 30 years of research and practice in integrating the liberating wisdom of Asia’s most refined spiritual traditions with Western forms of therapy and healing.
About the course
The Radiant Mind Course works at the result level of the unconditioned mind: identifying the experience of the unconditioned mind, deepening this experience and studying exactly what moves you in and out of this non-dual experience.
Structure of the course
Workshops: There are three 3-day workshops at ZIST Penzberg. In the opening workshop you will • create a sense of community and develop a common focus. • be introduced to the structure of the course. • be introduced to the experience of the unconditioned mind.
In the mid-course and completing workshops you will • deepen your understanding of non-dual presence. • continue to gain skills in resting in the unconditioned mind. • be given opportunities to facilitate this work.
Readings: Every two or three weeks you will receive an essay which will • introduce you to the distinctions and practices that you’ll work with over the next weeks. • open up new possibilities for living fully in the moment and new ways for accessing the unconditioned mind. • give you reference material through which you can refresh your experience of the unconditioned mind.
Experiential projects: You will also receive a set of 48 experiential exercises designed to • deepen your understanding of your conditioning. • make your mind more pliable and less fixated. • lead you into the unconditioned mind by dissolving your fixations.
Contemplative practice: This dimension of the course will • help you design a contemplative practice that suits your lifestyle. • refine, enhance or re-invigorate your existing practice. • not conflict with other practices. • let you experience shared meditation while connected by phone. • help you to deconstruct each other’s identifications.
Koan practice: You will • work with natural koans: questions like “What is this?”, “Where am I?”, “Am I moving forwards or backwards?”, “Am I moving at all?”, “Who am I?” • explore how natural koans can be used to enter and stabilize the experience of unstructured awareness. • learn to use koans to let your mind dissolve into the infinite expanse of unconditioned awareness.
Individual sessions: Every second week, in a 30-minute telephone session, you will • receive personalized and focused coaching in the issues you’re dealing with, and in the practices of the course. • have the opportunity to work with concerns of a more personal nature. • practice skills in facilitating this work with others.
Conference calls: Every two weeks you will also participate in a conference call with other members of your learning group and the instructor. Here you will • continue the work we opened up in the workshops. • clarify questions and queries that arise in the experiential exercises. • create a shared and nourishing contemplative environment. • experience the unconditioned mind in a globally dispersed setting. • give you opportunities to explore non-dual deconstruction.
Dates: Workshops begin at 18.30 h of first day and end at 14.00 h of last day.

Sunday February 17, 2013 – Sunday May 26, 2013
17 February - 26 May
This course invites you to let go of all effort to be or become anything other than who you are right now. You come to see directly that there is nothing to attain and that there is nothing to do in meditation. Only by letting everything be as it is will we find genuine fulfillment. We will explore the possibility to be in a place of contentment in the present moment. The shared exercises and the conference calls are an invitation to discover and connect with your innate capability to be at ease with yourself and your life, just as it is. Paradoxically from this way of resting with who you are new energies will emerge and transformation happens.
Together we will explore how to rest in the very nature of your being, in what is sometimes called the natural state, original mind, pure awareness, no mind, or simply emptiness.
This three month course consists of conference calls every second Sunday evening from 19.00 – 20.00 and practices for daily life in written form and recordings of guided meditations. You will be invited to a closed Facebook group where we can discuss and exchange our work with the daily practices.
The calls support abiding in unconditioned awareness in the midst of our everyday life. We cultivate nondual presence in a natural way by connecting with each other without pressure. We will use silence, exercises and dialogues to rest in the space of fulfillment. During these calls we rest confidently in the radiance of pure being by doing nothing!
First call is Sunday 17 February 19.00 – 20.00 CET, 10am – 11am PST, 1pm- 2pm EST
Course Fee: 90 Euro (670 kr), former participants: 45 Euro
Max 25 participants
Listen to a conference call:
Emotional reactivity starts as a tightening. There’s the familiar tug and before we know it, we’re pulled along. In just a few seconds, we go from being slightly miffed to completely out of control. Nevertheless, we have the inherent wisdom and ability to halt this chain reaction early on. To the degree that we’re attentive, we can nip the addictive urge while it’s still manageable. Just as we’re about to step into the trap, we can at least pause and take some deep breaths before proceeding.
