About Real Dharma

Real Dharma is dedicated to helping people find inner freedom through directly recognizing their true nature. Through listening to the teachings of liberation, and through contemplation and meditation, one can come to know with clarity that one’s true nature is non-dual limitless consciousness and being. Knowing this, one becomes free from dependence on other people or things for happiness and completion. This gives one strength to overcome difficulties and enables one to live a life of fulfillment and independence with gratitude, joy and love.

Real Dharma is led by Hal Blacker. Hal is trained and authorized to teach in the traditions of Advaita Vedanta and Tibetan Buddhist Dzogchen. He is committed to facilitating direct recognition of nondual awareness in a way that is free from dogma, ritual and authoritarianism. This is done through meditation, teachings and dialogue.

About Our Name Real Dharma

Dharma is a Sanskrit word with many meanings. Here it means  both the nature of reality–limitless being,  consciousness and fullness–and the teaching and way of life that leads to the recognition and assimilation of this nondual truth.
