About Annette Nibley

I was first exposed to non-duality in 2005 through the popular book I AM THAT, a collection of dialogues between Indian guru Nisargadatta Maharaj and his students. My interest in that book, and in non-duality, led me to John Wheeler, who was my teacher for the next five years.

In 2010, a friend suggested I read James Swartz' book How To Attain Enlightenment, and this was my first exposure to the teachings of Advaita (non-dualistic) Vedanta. In the pages of that book, I found answers to many of the questions that lingered in my mind about non-duality and getting free of suffering. I delved into James' video and audio recordings, and heard the whole logical teaching of Vedanta presented from beginning to end. After re-listening and self-inquiring for many years, I came across Swami Sarvapriyananda and Swami Paramarthananda, and have found the depth and clarity of their teaching to be a great boon. A deepening of my reverence for the beautiful complete teaching of Vedanta continues to unfold.

I live in Mill Valley, California. I hike, draw, enjoy friends and family, and mentor an inner-city teenager. Please feel free to write me — I love to answer your emails.
