Hi, I'm Michael Richardson-Borne, creator of The Path of Non-Separation.

The Path of Non-Separation is for you when you’re ready for a psychological journey designed to guide you to an experiential understanding of spiritual awakening.

I do not take this description of The Path of Non-Separation lightly – what I offer in the program is intensive and I want you to understand this up front.

Working with me requires what many spiritual traditions call “earnestness” – what I’d define as serious commitment, sustained curiosity, and the solid willingness to work intimately with a guide all rolled into one.

In short, The Path of Non-Separation is not spiritual entertainment for your ego.


Rather, it’s a practical process that focuses on questioning your ego in a way that reveals deeper and deeper identity attachments and ultimately who you truly are.

So, if you're a spiritual seeker who "doesn't quite get it" or someone who gets it but would like to add clarity to your realization, I’m confident I offer the conversation you are looking for.

To begin, add your email address and I'll send you access to your program materials and instructions on how to use them.

"I spent years with Indian master Ramesh Balsekar. He always said someone would translate the awakening experience in a way that was palatable to “the West.”  It’s my feeling that Michael is that person and his teaching of The Path of Non-separation is the way."

About The Program

The Path of Non-Separation Study Program is designed to offer you support by advancing your spiritual understanding in 3 ways:

1) You will deepen your intellectual understanding of the ego so that you are able to properly question its experience.

2) You will engage developmentally appropriate inquiries that help you “dis-embed from the ego” by mastering the ability to observe it at all times.

3)  You will participate in group Q&A sessions that incrementally re-contextualize your personal experience into a broader field of non-separative existence.

Unlike most spiritual teachings, The Path of Non-Separation does not challenge you to make one giant leap from ego attachment to awakening.

Instead, The Path of Non-Separation guides you through a series of what I call “micro-jumps” to uncover deeper and deeper identity experiences that ultimately lead to the same awakened destination – but with less confusion and frustration.

By focusing on accomplishing these “micro jumps” from one primary identification to another, you build confidence and gain a kind of momentum that makes moving beyond the ego toward the realization Non-Separation a natural by-product of your learning.

"It’s truly something when the experiences Michael teaches actually begin showing up in your life. Every week is like finding a new treasure. Parts of my mind I never knew were there came into focus. This gave me the confidence to dig deeper. Until I met Michael, I always felt lost to some degree when it came to my spiritual path. But The Path of Non-Separation is like a GPS. Just type in the destination Non-separation and Michael will guide you there."

"Working with Michael is a revelation. I could go on and on about the teaching, but I’d rather talk about him. Michael is a great listener and goes out of his way to make sure I am always satisfied with my understanding. It was obvious from the start he was invested in my journey."

Who should participate in the program?
While the Non-Separation teaching is designed to support anyone curious about spiritual awakening, the following groups of people may be particularly well suited.
details
The Seeker
Those beyond middle-age who have come a long way and feel like awakening is “now or never,” those who are simply ready to “finish the deal,” and those who are determined to end the cycle of seeking, giving up, and then seeking again.
accessibility
The Lonely
Those who are deeply engaged in their seeker’s journey but don’t have anyone to talk to who will listen without judgment and those who have questions about awakening but don’t know where to go to get them answered.
lightbulb_outline
The Intellectual
Those who have read plenty of spiritual books and have an intellectual understanding but not a lived experience of awakening and those who would benefit from a more intellectual path of awakening that “uses the mind to pierce the mind."

The Discerning
Those who are spiritual seekers but are turned off by traditional spiritual teachers and those who would prefer a “professor to student” relationship over a “guru to student” one in their learning environment.
all_inclusive
The Spiritual
Those who have had an awakening experience but “don’t know how to live there” and those who practice religious, esoteric, or mystical belief systems that now seem "to come up short."

The Discouraged
Those who are meditation practitioners, students of ACIM, Neo-Advaita teachers, or Gurus but are still confused and those who are avid seekers but deep down believe they are "never going to get it."

Meet Michael

Michael Richardson-Borne is an American spiritual teacher as well as the creator of Applied Awakening and The Path of Non-separation.

He has supported the launch of multiple successful startup companies in the field of transformational education and was formerly employed as the CEO of Globalish Institute, a privately funded think tank in Los Angeles guided by his research in transpersonal psychology. In 2016, Michael left his CEO position to focus on teaching at the newly formed Richardson-Borne Institute and to further develop his work in Applied Awakening.

In addition to his training in psychology, Michael studied philosophy on special student status at Oxford University and holds degrees in Biology and English. He is an award-winning poet as well as one of 50 global teachers selected for the inaugural Global Cooperative Forum. Young leaders of the New Arab Spring movement call him “a true voice for change."

His primary spiritual support came from Alan Shelton, a teacher who spent a decade in India where he studied with Advaita teacher Ramesh Balsekar, the translator for renowned teacher Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Michael is now at work writing a 4-volume series titled "The Only Revolution Left" and continues to teach The Path of Non-Separation to students who happen to find him.

"I’ve been a seeker for a long while and I must say, the The Path of Non-Separation is illuminating. Many of the things I had read about and contemplated over many years, I finally got to experience. To say I am thankful is an understatement."
