Swami Sarvapriyananda: One of the most famous speakers on Advaita Vedanta in the world today. He is a monk of the Ramakrishna Order and studied at Harvard University. His deep understanding of Vedanta and his impressive knowledge of
Western philosophy inspire truth seekers worldwide. As a dedicated teacher, he shares his insights through illuminating lectures, making the timeless wisdom of Advaita Vedanta and non-duality accessible. He currently serves as spiritual leader and teacher at the Vedanta Society of New York, guiding new generations in their quest for self-realization and inner peace.

Dr. Bernardo Kastrup: A philosopher and computer scientist, author of remarkable books on the relationship between consciousness and reality. He has published several books, including More Than Allegory and Why materialism is balloney. These books show how the authors quest along a scientific path and introspection has led to his non-dual insights.

Dr. Dave Vliegenthart: A religious studies scholar at Maastricht University, whose PhD research centered on the philosophy of Franklin Merrell-Wolff (best known for his books Experience and Philosophy and The Philosophy of Consciousness without an Object). He has several academic publications to his name, in which he studies contemporary spirituality from a socio-historical perspective, with an emphasis on Eastern and Eastern-inspired movements in the West.
