Not for me. Not what I thought it would be. Read it and enjoy. There are good points. Not a spiritual shaman book.

Any additional comments?
Im very scientific minded, so this was pretty hard to take seriously at times. Its important to remember that the authors didnt just make this shit up, these are ideas that have been around for thousands of years. Sort of. I recognized a mixture of vedic, buddhist, and native american ideas. I would recommend listening to "The Spiritual Brain: Science and Religious Experience" as well as having a basic understanding of Jung first. That said, once you get past the fairies and unicorns there is some value here. There are some useful meditation techniques relying heavily on visualization and sound, something not learned so much with transcendental meditation. Remember that its been proven that by using meditation humans can change not only the way that they feel about themselves, but the actual chemical and physical structure of the brain. This coupled with documentation on the placebo effect and psychosomatic illness begs the question of wether our minds are being used to their full healing potential.

Where does Seeing in the Dark rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I haven't heard much of it yet. The reader is so emotionally flat that I keep drifting off.
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does Janice Anderson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Nothing. The reader seems more concerned with her "professional" reader voice than conveying the depth of the text. She reads in a sing song, whispered, metered voice that, while it may sound good to the ear, is not moving the message. I'd rather read the book myself.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
