Change in sense of nondual awareness and spiritual awakening in response to a multi-dimensional wellbeing program

Though there exists an incredibly diverse range of meditative practices and spiritual philosophies, the majority of these emphasize the importance of cultivating a perceptual shift away from a predominate ego self-identification to a more non-personal universal awareness, often termed “nondual” awareness. In nondual awareness, prior experienced polarities such as ‘self and other’ are collapsed and recontextualized. In nonduality, the knower, the known, and the process of knowing are experienced as one. Such transpersonal states are associated with optimal wellbeing. This paper presents findings from the SBTI study which suggest that participants experienced an increased sense of nondual awareness and spiritual awakening.

With the vision of Whole Person Medicine in mind, this paper argues that Integrative Medicine as now practiced in the West has, for the most part, remained reductionist in its approach. That is, the ideals of Traditional Medical Systems such as Ayurveda have yet to be realized among Integrative Medicine practices or research programs.
