Summary

For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom. "Don't think that awakening is the end," teaches Adyashanti. "Awakening is the end of seeking, the end of the seeker, but it is the beginning of a life lived from your true nature." Learn more about:

Great read

I found this book really interesting and very well presented. I really liked the way that just when the subject matter was getting a little dry, some hummer would put in to lighten the mood - great book which I will listen to again.

Wow!

The most “real” spiritual book I have listened to so far. Made me feel human again in all of my human imperfections. Best description of what is the ultimate meditative state as well as the objective. I am certain J. Kabt-Zin would highly approve :-) made me feel human again. Never felt so ok to not know anything and to be totally confused!! Thank you!!! Excited to listen to the rest of your books!!! Best part was “quit looking for something cause there ain’t nothing to find” love, love, love it! Can say so much more at the same time enjoying the silence in my life again :-)))))

I agree MIND BLOWING

This guy is amazing. I have both of his speeches that are available here, and recommend them both VERY VERY VERY highly. His views on being awake are actually liberating (no joke). He teaches that being AWAKE is really not hard, and that in his opinion there are a lot more AWAKE people than you realize ... MAYBE EVEN YOU.
You can hear his authentic-ness in his voice. Very easy too listen too. He leads you through a couple guided meditations. This is basically the teaching he gave at a retreat. I would love to meet this guy!!!

Satsang w/ Adyashanti

This is the best fromat I have listened to of the teachings of this emerging teacher of enlightenment. There are only the teachings, dialogues have been omitted. Recommended for would-be students and veterans alike.
