My interest in nonduality begun exactly forty years ago, in 1979, when I read about Maharishi’s Unified Field of consciousness and energy and I was fascinated with the possibility taking all part in the same and sole manifestation of existence. So I started studying and researching more abut this vision, also confronting with other people seeking the truth about the ultimate nature of reality.
Since I noticed that the distance of Eastern texts from the Western cultures, archetypes and religions was often making their message difficult to assimilate, I aimed to verify whether the non-dualistic vision could also be found in Western philosophical currents, and in Christian mysticism. The encounter with the works of the Renaissance philosopher Nicholas of Cuse was the door to an immense new territory to explore. Studying his philosophical texts I was so nourished in my heart and mind that I decided to write about his vision of nonduality in a book published in 2014.
Since then, my interest has been mainly on the contributions of Western authors, from Neo Platonism to the New Thought and the contemporary unitarian currents of thought, valuing their efforts to cultivate and promote a vision that seems to challenge the typical materialism of Western societies.
With the enthusiasm to share with as many people as possible what I have learned, I then decided to devote myself to spread the principles of nonduality and to accompany other researchers along their path to develop their awareness of a nondual reality. So, years of study, practice, experience and direct encounters with important teachers (the one with Francis Lucille, a pupil of Jean Klein, boosted my awareness of nonduality) have made possible to develop a unique approach to nonduality teaching, specifically suited to the Western context.
I currently manage the blog unoassoluto.it, which is the largest Italian nonduality quotes database. I give lectures, run classes, and offer individual sessions where I teach my unique method to reach a non-dualistic awareness through the use of colors, also described in the book Understanding nonduality through color.
Recently I started the One Self nonduality hub project with the mission to influence the evolution of collective consciousness in a non-dualistic sense.
