The Natural Awakening: Advanced Nondual Training is an exciting year-long program. It is profound, stimulating and life-changing. The Training encompasses both the transmission of nondual awareness in its expanded, complete, and indescribable state and the break down of nondual awareness into comprehensive components which can be explored, demonstrated and taught.
Peter is a rare teacher who is what he teaches. His deep understanding of nondual awareness is demonstrated from the inside out. He has developed a format which encourages the immersion into the unconditioned while purposefully and methodically exploring the intricacies of how to teach the unteachable “nothing”.
In essence, the entire Training is a living example of nondual awareness in action – from the respectful regard with which each individual is treated, the development of community and global connection, the skillful movement from intellect to beyond mind, and the creation of a comprehensive curriculum which challenges at the same time that it lovingly supports.
The Training is wonderfully inspiring. I have received so much from Peter and Marie, and everybody else, and I am deeply grateful to you for this…. Through the Nondual Training, I have received the very piece of the puzzle that was missing, namely that is that there is nothing truly to heal, repair, or work on.
As a therapist, this Training has completely changed my work, and my life, it is incredible! I do not see myself or my clients in need of healing. And as a result, the intimacy created rests on the light surrounding us and not a feeling of empathy If might direct towards my clients’ suffering. The Training has also profoundly transformed the dissolving of all inner conflict. The acceptance of just what is now creates the space of nondual, when that so it’s great. And if the space isn’t always there, it’s also great.
Thank you again for making this possible for me, for us all, Peter, and Marie.
Peter’s skill at expressing the inexpressible and also making it explicit to allow others to transmit that which cannot be transmitted is extraordinary. The Training is challenging and transformative and applicable to all areas of our lives.

The Nondual Training has transformed my life. Helping others realize nondual awareness has gradually become my primary activity, allowing that awareness to permeate my life more than ever. I’m now sharing this more powerfully and frequently than I previously imagined possible. The continuity of contact with Peter and my fellow students has steadily supported and encouraged my growth as a nondual facilitator.
Before the course, I expected that Peter’s masterful nondual transmission would be constantly inspiring and instructive, but I had no idea how much his coaching calls would help me overcome unperceived identity limitations and realize new possibilities for myself. My current way of living just wouldn’t have been conceivable without this course.

Dr. Peter Fenner’s Non-Dual Training program for therapists and teachers is an intellectual, spiritual and communal tour de force. From an intellectual perspective, the manual Peter has written for this work is brilliant. I find it at once rigourous in scholarship, lucidly written, and practically useful across a variety of disciplines.
Spiritually, Peter gently beckons me toward realizing my true nature, moment by moment, through direct experiencing of the Unconditioned Mind, whether on my cushion at home, sitting at my desk, working with a client in my growing therapy practice, or teaching my meditation group at a neighborhood yoga studio. In my experience as a long time seeker, this degree of clarity has only come about through the sort of direct transmission I have been blessed to taste in the presence of master teachers like Lama Surya Das, Adyashanti, HH Jigdal Dagchen Sakya Rinpoche, and Lama Tharchen Rinpoche. I have found Peter’s presence, as well as his depth and stability of realization to be in that auspicious class. And the individual attention I have received from Peter in one-on-one mentoring sessions, which are also included in this program, has been an amazing, heart and mind opening gift.
With all of that said, perhaps the most wonderful aspect of this work has been the quality of community that has assembled around Peter. I have experienced such a beautiful, loving feeling of Sangha—both while in residential retreats and in between during teleconferences with large and small groupings of my fellow participants. I have absolutely no doubt that this spiritual family from around the world will be an enduring part of my life for years to come. In summary, this experience has begun to transform the way I work and live in a way that has heretofore eluded me.
At long last, I am beginning to authentically integrate all aspects of my formerly compartmentalized world into a Unity that I had only previously imagined was possible in dreams of a better life that existed somewhere “out there.” What I now know is it’s all here. Right now. In every precious, timeless moment. Nothing is, or ever has been missing! May Peter’s work prosper and grow, and may the collective efforts of our expanding Sangha be of benefit to all beings without exception.

After eight years of Zen monastic training in Japan I met Peter Fenner and his work. How refreshing and invigorating! It was as if one koan after another reilluminated itself. The Nondual Training has made it possible for me to re-embrace teaching and enter the marketplace with open hands.
Soto Zen priest, Focusing Trainer and meditation teacher
With his radically insightful and deeply impactful Nondual Training, Peter opens new doors for pure and direct contact with our essential nature of unconditioned awareness and redefines the possibility of resting in it while offering extensive and compassionate support through this journey of personal transformation and professional growth. I’ve been deeply touched by this Training, its effectiveness and Peter’s wise guidance and palpable unconditioned presence.
The search is over. The Nondual Training with Peter Fenner helped me find here and now what other spiritual traditions have only promised despite decades of practice.
I intimately experienced the healing quality of Peter’s teaching on spiritual, emotional and physical dimension both personally and professionally. First, when recovering from an accident and surgery at the time of death of my close friend and mentor. Second, in my work with cancer patients and their families who engage in Ultimate Healing thanks to the clarity and precision of Peter’s spiritual message which is free of foreign to them religious or cultural content.
With his life-transforming Nondual Training and Radiant Mind Courses, Peter engages trainees in a practical learning process which allows participants to transmit the contentless wisdom. I would strongly recommend Radiant Mind to any lay person and the Nondual Training to any professional wanting to expand their own horizons.
My words cannot express my gratitude.

Peter is an exceptionally clear, warm and generous teacher. He takes the impossibly difficult subject of “nothing” and sparks an atmosphere where the dynamic relationship between formlessness and form abide. This unique learning community has revolutionized my work as a therapist and as a therapy instructor.
Heather Dawson, MA, RCC. RCAT
Peter Fenner has a unique talent for melting away presumed obstacles on-the-spot with his brilliant use of deconstructive dialogue and unfindability inquiry. He works from the result level, continually revealing the effortlessness of being. The Teacher Training provides the guidance and opportunity for developing one’s own talent and style for manifesting nonduality in the world.
Peter’s profound understanding and transmission of unconditioned awareness have coalesced in a masterful expression through the form of this training. For me, personally, it was the deepest immersion in and experience of the nondual in all my many years of practice and study. This is the “how-to” I wanted but never received: a methodology for transmitting the nondual that I hadn’t believed possible. I’d also previously thought that the “results or fruition” level teaching was only accessible for the enlightened. The field of inspiration and joy, caring and wisdom co-created by students, teacher and the great mystery was deeply transformative and thrilling.
Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Teacher
The Nondual Training is a very clean, and direct “pointing out” of a timeless non-eventfulness that is the ground of “timeless wisdom.” This is not a something that can be achieved, lost, found, or understood. However, it can be transmitted–and fortunately, in such a way that others can learn better how to transmit it too. Stripped free of sectarian or ritual baggage, the Training supports an increasing familiarity with This, while refining a clarity in speaking from– and about it–that is remarkably un-encumbered by mental constructions.
I feel so grateful for this Training. Its skillful means are sophisticated and elegant, timeless and completely contemporary. My heart is warmed by the learning community–or sangha–formed by those who share it. I think of this as a blessing, that I am glad I gave to myself.

I found this Training offered a unique and life changing opportunity. Peter brings remarkable clarity and extraordinary precision to his teaching. He is a steadfast and capable guide into the nondual, and remarkably, at the same time, can skillfully assist in developing fluency around the experience. He has honed his years of study into an original and timeless transmission.
A beautiful function of the course is in the Training to benefit others it facilitates the opening to our own natural evolution.
Peter’s open and accessible presencing of unconditioned awareness provides his Nondual Training Program with a focused, yet open, access to nondual awareness. His deep understanding of the Madhyamika deconstructive inquiry process is imparted with precision and leads to the direct experience that “there is no suffering, and no absence of suffering”.
Peter encourages and supports a diversity of Training partners and provides opportunities for deep and profoundly life-changing interactions.
This work is not about the creation and development of solo practices, as seen in most Wisdom traditions, but expansion and extension of nonduality into non-self referential relational being – applicable within the helping professions and in daily life. Peter is the clearing through which this work evolves.
With profound gratitude and appreciation.
Peter Fenner is an extraordinary teacher of ancient “timeless wisdom” for today’s world. My work with him is joyful, filled with ease and integrity. I have been studying with him for almost 5 years and my work and personal life have flourished more and more each year. He is direct, down to earth and deeply respectful of everyone.
I feel deeply fortunate to have participated in Peter’s Nondual Training three times. His work transmits natural access to unconditioned awareness and I am able to facilitate this same access to my students and clients with ease and grace… I am being asked to expand my work overseas and Peter’s Training has given me the capacity to do this.
Founder and President of the Foundation for Radical Love
The guidance from Peter’s Nondual Training has provided me the insight, orientation, and clarity to facilitate group and individual movement toward direct knowing of pure essence of being. Peter’s capacity to demonstrate and teach ways of coming into contact with the unknowable in a simple, uncluttered manner is truly remarkable. This Training has been life altering, both for myself and others who have been touched as a result of my sharing of this training.
I am very thankful to Peter Fenner who has brilliantly organized and lovingly transmits the Nondual Training. The Training is delivered in an experiential way that is both profoundly personal and clearly practical in its ability to support people entering and remaining in nondual awareness. The effect of the transmission in others has been remarkable and indescribably evident.
The most important aspect of Peter’s training is the purity in which he explores and encourages others to explore the unconditioned by clearing away conceptualizations that can appear to inhibit just being. I say, “appear,” because there is no thing that differentiates being from the personal. A laser-like attention to inquiry effects a dissolution of the questioner and simply the questions linger in the vastness of open space – what that space means is irrelevant and the knowledge of this creates perfect freedom. I heartily endorse Peter’s work, Peter’s presence and the energy supporting both as evidence of Truth.
Peter Fenner functions naturally as a teacher even when you’re just chatting with him. He possesses a gentle magnetism… For the student in the Nondual Training program, the whole complex makes for tremendous support, good networking, and a steeping within a clean, unfettered wisdom… I had a chance to look through the guidebook for the Training and it seems to touch on every specific detail of teaching.

This Training has been a wonderful opportunity to experience a new way of being with my students, others and life, as well as seeing more clearly where my place is as a facilitator. Learning to hold others in a space of unconditional awareness has been a gift both for me and those I come in contact with as a mentor. It has also been wonderful to see how healing and release can happen naturally without needing to do or undo anything. Learning to step aside. With Peter’s wise and loving guidance there has been an opening to that which cannot be known. I have benefited and so all benefit.
