It is unlikely that cultural hatred will change unless individuals see through the ideologies that divide them.

Our personal consciousness awakens from the inside out, from first- hand imperience within our own blood and being.

In “Imperience: Understanding the Heart of Consciousness,” author Erik Knud-Hansen shares practical insight meditation and intuitive inquiry for deepening wisdom about the dharma (truth) of nonduality, understanding the universal nature of absolute consciousness and awakening unconditional love, compassion, moral conscience and other matters of the heart.

Knud-Hansen also describes the meaning of unity consciousness and nonduality beyond cultural and political divides, urging readers to clarify their own foundational beliefs as well as recognizing the common good in others.

“I have observed countless ways that the beautiful heart of spirituality is corrupted by views and concepts that may mean well, but often result in unnecessary sectarian divides, intolerance, animosity and even warfare in the name of religion,” Knud-Hansen said. “It is unlikely that cultural hatred will change unless individuals see through the ideologies that divide them.”
