OneTheMagazine and In the Garden Publishing have produced their second book of awakening stories from the contributors to ONE!
"The world will be saved by the Western woman." — the Dalai Lama at the 2009 Vancouver Peace Summit
“ONE the Magazine continues to develop as a stunning vehicle celebrating the many ways the spirit and expression of nonduality show up.”
There is the possibility in every human life when for an instant the illusion of existing as a separate entity simply vanishes. A veil is lifted and somehow, miraculously, all of life is experienced as one seamless unified reality, and you recognize without a doubt that the truth of who you are is this one reality. Never again can you truly deny that not only are you intimately connected with every human heart and with all of life, at the core you are the fabric of life itself.
— Shanti Einolander, founder/editor of ONE
A SPECIAL EDITION OF ONE —
This issue invites and explores what might be considered a feminine expression of the non-dual teachings. Though Truth includes every gender, and love and compassion are qualities universal to all, women throughout time have embodied a solid message of absolute inclusion and unconditional acceptance, often without recognition for the depth of their surrender or the clarity of their wisdom. The following four female teachers, along with our featured poet and artist, stand out in their clarity and passion toward bringing peace to all hearts and to our precious earth. (more…)
In the lineage of Ramana Maharshi and H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji), Gangaji has been sharing her message of peace and freedom around the globe for 25 years. Her influence extends to all of the contributors you see featured here, many of whom now teach internationally. In this lead article she shares her views on women as spiritual leaders, on the experience of being fully awake and fully human, and on taking responsibility, as awakened human beings, for our time here on Mother Earth.
by Miranda Macpherson
As her natural way of being, Miranda Macpherson is "unapologetically feminine." Her message of all-inclusive love and acceptance powerfully transmit a clarity and wisdom that invites us not only to realize the truth of who we are, but to actualize and consciously embody that truth in our everyday human lives.
by Amoda Maa
Amoda Maa is a fresh clear voice of the grounded feminine, now offering satsang internationally. She speaks directly to the embodiment of nondual understanding in body, speech, and action. As she writes: "Enlightenment is no longer a secret reserved for mystics, nor a luxury indulged in by privileged Westerners seeking to become “more spiritual.” If we are to take a quantum leap into a new future, enlightenment is a necessity, and it needs to come down from the mountaintop and get its hands dirty in the marketplace of human affairs.
by Isira Sananda
Based in Sydney, Australia, Isira Sananda is a quickly emerging force for collective awakening. Her clarity of expression and her passion powerfully bring home the point that "unless we awaken to the love we really are, how shall we embrace and respond effectively to our planetary situation rather than to recoil in the face of such adversity?" In this article she invites us all to step fully into the embodiment of peace on earth.
Beloved singer/songwriter Kirtana has been referred to by many as “the Rumi of our times.” In this article she shares her approach to non-dual realization and her craft as a musician from her own feminine perspective. Additionally, ONE is honored to include Kirtana as our Featured Artist in this special edition.
by Trinity Bourne
This article about the work of Anna Breytenbach was so popular, ONE decided to re-post it in this special edition. "Spirit" is a magnificient black leopard at the Jukani Wildlife Predator Conservation Park in South Africa, whose life trajectory changed due to Anna's skills as an inter-species communicator. This in turn touched the lives of the humans around him. This story exemplifies our inherent oneness with the purity, intelligence, and emotional needs of these great animal beings that we are so very privileged to share this planet with. Thank you, Trinity Bourne, for originally bringing the story to ONE!

When we share our experience of awakening, when we speak about what it is to live an ordinary human life consciously aware of our essence as One Being, it transmits the possibility of that same grace opening within the heart of another.
