What is Nondualism?

Nondualism or nonduality is a way of understanding the world as a single unified existence. Nondual literally means “not two” or “not split.”

By contrast, a dualistic worldview (which is currently the predominant worldview in most cultures) sees the world as independent objects and concepts split up into categories of differentiation. Creator/creation, I/you, people/planet, etc.

This doesn’t mean that duality (i.e., the perspective that the universe is filled with different, distinct objects) is “just an illusion” or “not real.” On one level, dualism is a legitimate system within which almost all of us operate and it is a system that is needed for almost all of human society’s other systems to operate. However, a perspective of duality is only capable of capturing a limited depth of reality. Duality falls short of describing the true essence of reality, God, what it means to be alive, concsiousness, and ourselves.

What is Nondual Christianity?

Nondual Christianity is a nondual worldview based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. It is based on the idea that God is infinite and is thus One with everything. If all things are in God and of God, and thus share God’s essence, then they are inseparable from God and from each other.

Nondual Christianity is as old as Christianity itself, though it’s gone by different names at different times: Contemplative Christianity, Christian Mysticism, the Universal Christ, to name a just a few of many examples. It is an approach to relating to God that dates back to the desert fathers and mothers of the 3rd century AD and Christian mystics and monastics like Julian of Norwich and Meister Eckhart. Today, it is seeing a resurgence with the likes of Cynthia Bourgeault, Richard Rohr, and many more.

Furthermore, there are many invitations to a nondualistic understanding of God throughout the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. The Gospel of John, many writings and sayings from the Apostle Paul, and many prophetic voices from the Old Testament are just a few examples.

The Kingdom of God is not a place. It is within you.

Luke 17:21

God is not at a distance from any of us. We live and we move and we are in God.

Acts 17:27-28

May all be 1. As you, Father, are in Me and I am in You, may they be in Us.

The glory which You have given to Me, I have given to them so that they may be 1.

John 17:21-22, a prayer of Jesus
