In a series of interviews with teachers recognized by their peers and learners as being adept at their craft I attempted to elicit their intimate experience of the moment of good teaching and found that some of what they descriptionbed accorded very strongly with the experience of non duality. These experiences are analysed, drawing on Loyï¿½s (1988) characterisation of non duality, and its dangers articulated. It is juxtaposed to the current initiative within South Africa to set up minimum standards in teaching and learning and it is suggested that a relationship of parody exists between the two.
