Stephen H. Wolinsky, Ph.D., (Narayan) is a direct disciple of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj and lived in India and Asia for more than six and a half years. He has taught Self-Enquiry and Kashmir Shaivism (Tantra) from 1982 to the present.

As a trajectory Quantum Psychology was founded in 1985 with Advaita-Vedanta and Buddhism’s Heart Sutra and Diamond Sutra as its context. Quantum Psychology integrated Western Psychology, Advaita-Vedanta’s Non-duality, Quantum Physics, Neuro-Science, Kashmir Shaivism, Self Enquiry and Buddhism. The purpose of Quantum Psychology was to act as a trajectory enabling the realization of the One Mind, or Consciousness (Quantum Consciousness), or Buddha Mind, (Emptiness)*. Quantum Psychology attempted to update many of the ancient cultural metaphors and pointers bringing them into present time language thus making “their understanding” more accessible.

“All you can teach is understanding,
the rest comes on its own.”
– Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

In 1999 Quantum Psychology stopped being taught as a trajectory. Instead the focus was entirely on his mentor and Guru Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Still Advaita-Vedanta and Buddhism’s Heart Sutra and Diamond Sutra along with Zen remained as the context while continuing since the mid-1980’s to incorporate the language of 20th and 21st Century scientific and philosophical metaphors. This enabledAdvaita Vedanta and Buddhism to point directly to The Teaching Mastery of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. What was discovered was that utilizing present time western cultural pointers enabled “the teachings” to touch “enquirers” more deeply “where they were”.

In 2002 Post-Deconstruction was formally founded once again utilizing scientific models as pointers which both demonstrated and “proved” Advaita-Vedanta, Post Modernism, and Buddhism’s Heart Sutra and Diamond Sutra.

“I want to give you objective knowledge
to objectively show you
that it is all an illusion.”
– Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Stephen is the author of twenty-five books, eight audio books including a set of seven CD’s, “Waking From The Trance of Self: A Practical Course on Developing Multidimensional Awareness” (produced by Sounds True 1999) and a series of 4 DVD’s, I Am That I Am (produced by Neti Neti films). He presently resides in Aptos, California.

The Silence Between Mind and Liberation

“There isn’t really such a thing as silence,” Robert Zatorre, an expert on the neurology of sound. “In the absence of sound, the brain often tends to produce internal representations of sound.” “Letting go” of the mind is as much an essential part of meditation as noticing your thoughts in the first place, in the same way that realizing that the handle of a pot is hot, allowing you to release your grip on it.
