Sounds of Emptiness
by
Todd Lorentz

Sounds of Emptiness offers a collection of inspiring thoughts on the nature of Oneness and Unity as a living practical principle that we need to collectively embrace for the survival of our planet. In simple and straightforward sayings, Lorentz constructs a meditative journey through an idea of the world as interconnected and interdependent – uncovering the need for humanity to engage in that unified expression as a way of life.

More than mere aphorisms or simple clichés, the author reveals deep insights into the nature of human problems caused by our wrong identification and illusory perceptions of the world. Set among an artful presentation of stunning black and white images, Sounds of Emptiness invites the reader to enter into the livingness which exists behind the ‘outer forms’ and to undergo a journey toward understanding who we are and how we can heal the world.

Thoughts On Unity: wholeness and the end of suffering
by
Todd Lorentz

“Life is suffering”…so declared the Buddha more than 2500 year ago. No truer than this is what we are witnessing in the world today. War, widespread depression and mental illness, mass refugee movements, poverty, injustice and a collapsing global environment stand as testimony to the suffering that humanity endures based on the separation and alienation brought about by wrong identification and inner dis-unity. Lorentz takes us on a journey through the cause of our suffering – the original ‘fall’ from a state of unity with our Source – and provides a way forward that can restore our place in the Universe. The way forward for humanity is through Unity; not a unity characterized by slick platitudes or hollow aphorisms but a Unity marked by a renewed inner connection to one another, to nature and to the Divine.

Thoughts On Unity: wholeness and the end of suffering helps us to understand how we have come to be so disconnected from our inner selves and the world around us, and how the revitalization of Unity can lead to the true revolution that humanity is looking for to take it forward into a new world based in cooperation, right relationship, love, justice and sharing.

Essays On Nonduality, Volume I
by
Todd Lorentz

This first book, in a two volume set of Essays on Nonduality, presents a collection of essays exploring a variety of topics through the analytical lens of Nonduality. Subjects include employing Nonduality in the development of a coherent theory of aesthetics; a survey of the expression of Nondual theory within the western philosophical tradition; Nonduality within the Sufi tradition; the challenge to Critical Theory and Cultural Studies from Nondualism; Nonduality and enlightenment in Tibetan Buddhist shamanism; Nonduality and the life of Ramana Maharshi; questions about the need for coercive State institutions from a Nondual Confucian perspective; and an exploration of the effects that Nonduality can have in changing our approach to international development and poverty relief.

Author of Nagarjuna, Nondualism and the Nature of Nothing, Lorentz provides an engaging voyage into both the subtleties of Nondual theory as well as the practical wisdom made available to us through Nonduality. This revealing and sometimes uplifting exploration demonstrates the breadth and capacity of Nonduality to provide answers to challenges arising from both the sacred and the mundane. M ore than this, however, Nonduality provides a way of thinking which can fully unify the material and the spiritual into one synthetic world view.

Essays On Nonduality, Volume II
by
Todd Lorentz

This second book of a two volume series builds further on a variety of topics in Nonduality. Subjects include an exploration of theory and method in Nonduality; analysing the challenges to understanding and communicating ideas in Nonduality; the role of Nonduality in generating within us a longing for unity; the nondual philosophy of F. H. Bradley; the deconstruction of identity as interpreted through the Buddhist perspective of Anuttarayoga Tantra; understanding the illusion of identity toward overcoming of the fear of death; evaluating errors which can arise in Buddhist analysis in the absence of a Nondual perspective; and how the Buddhist Dharma could provide a unique response to the discontent and breakdown of western consumerist civilisation.

Author of Nagarjuna, Nondualism and the Nature of Nothing, Lorentz provides an engaging voyage into both the subtleties of nondual theory as well as the practical wisdom made available to us through nonduality. This revealing and sometimes uplifting exploration demonstrates the breadth and capacity of nonduality to provide answers to challenges arising from both the sacred and the mundane. More than this, however, a vision is accorded of a way of thinking that can embrace and accommodate both a material and spiritual view of world.

Nagarjuna, Nondualism and the Nature of Nothing
by
Todd Lorentz

A new approach to understanding our world is rapidly gaining ascendancy in the hearts and minds of people everywhere; a worldview steeped in the growing awareness that we are One family, One humanity. At the foundation of this worldview is a mode of thinking called Nondualism and one of its most detailed and inspired explanations can be found in the works of Nagarjuna, a 2nd century Buddhist logician and founder of the Madhyamika tradition. In Nagarjuna, Nondualism and the Nature of Nothing, Todd Lorentz provides a detailed exposition on the rigorous lines of reasoning developed by Nagarjuna and illustrates how the contrasting qualities of logic and intuition collide to form the essential basis of argument in that famous Doctrine on the Middle Way.

Written by the author in a style that, by the power of its own persuasion begins to deconstruct the reader’s own dualistic preconceptions, this primer on the ‘emptiness of reality’ is sure to become an essential tool in the search to penetrate the mysterious and intriguing field of nondualism. From the principles of uncertainty in quantum physics to the remarkable labyrinth of the logician’s Tetralemma, Lorentz leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind that they have entered into a brave new world.
