I found enlightenment just after hearing how powerful the now is, that suffering can’t hold a light against it- in the first couple of chapters. Id read a lot on stoicism and self compassion and had 60 hours of meditation. After a serious battle between staying aware and being taken over by the time machine for weeks...
This is while going through serious trauma... I’d never even heard of enlightenment before this book, but it’s the real deal... it’s like you’re constantly glowing from the inside... like a shield against all suffering when you refuse to let there be any more. When it happened it froze me in awe of the beauty of the world for hours... I couldn’t nor wanted to move. Now there’s no time machine... just contentment. Hope this helps someone :)

Possibly the greatest thing I’ve ever read

Basically the bible of the Stoics... something to keep on me always and constantly re-listen to. How to live a good life and be free from suffering!

Complements the step by step guide

Gives a wider range of understanding of compassion and goes hand in hand with The Step by Step Guide to Self-Compassion by Kristin. Both books have changed my life in light of massive trauma. I couldn’t feel compassion and didn’t even know self-compassion existed. Now I feel and cry freely. Thanks Kristin

A well written and page turning adventure through discovering something better than the pursuit of happiness and positive thinking. Exactly what I needed to read, thanks Oliver, would recommend to all

Who would have known that you could go from an unconscious relationship to a conscious one. The title says it all- easy to listen to and follow. Definitely had a few tears going- I’m going to be much more prepared for the next relationship, thanks

If you’re looking for more depth than just mindfulness or compassion... this it it. It’s the big picture in depth- how it all works together with guides. Great read. It comes from an experienced practitioner and therapist.

A well thought-out and articulated modern summary of timeless philosophies summarising stoicism. Principles laid out make sense to me and are steering me and my story to a happier place that makes sense. Derren is great to listen to and has put a lot of work and thought into this. Top 5 books of all time for me. Thanks Derren

Just hit rock bottom, found my drive and came across this audiobook. Hard to believe what a hard life he’s lived but seeing what he has achieved has reinforced my drive. This is probably the best book I’ve ever read.
