Stephan has practiced and taught nondual approaches to truth for more than 40 years, including 10 years as a Buddhist monk. After a series of deepening realizations, he received Dharma transmission (authorization to teach) from Adyashanti, a teacher in the spiritual wisdom tradition of Zen and Advaita. His life is now devoted to igniting and fostering the flame of truth in others through his counseling, mentoring, teaching, and writing.
In addition to regular teleclasses, satsangs, and intensives, Stephan offers an annual eight-month School for Awakening that begins again in Fall 2012. A licensed psychotherapist as well as a spiritual teacher, he has been a pioneer in the integration of nondual wisdom and Western psychology and has evolved a vibrant, intimate approach to counseling and mentoring that blends psychological insight and spiritual realization. His latest book, Wake Up Now: A Guide to the Journey of Spiritual Awakening, is available in paperback from McGraw-Hill.
