Publisher's Summary

From Shame to Wholeness - Inviting the Transformative Power of Grace

"So many of us hold a deep belief that we were born unworthy," reflects Adyashanti, "inadequate, unlovable, and alone." But what if, in truth, we weren't put here to pay penance, change our karma, or "fix" ourselves? What if we chose to be here because we so loved the world that we poured ourselves into it - to make it whole again, to restore "the hidden divinity amid the disaster"?

With Healing the Core Wound of Unworthiness, we're invited to entertain that possibility. Even after years of meditation, Adyashanti felt an enduring sense of self-disappointment and failure. And he sensed it in nearly everyone he met - even among the most confident, successful, and outwardly happy people. Then healing came to him in a profound experience of redemptive love, a reunion with the deepest ground of being. It is a gift offered to all of us - without struggle or the need to earn it. In essence, it says to us: This is how I love you. And this is how you shall love all things and all beings.

Join this lucid teacher and author as he offers insights, meditations, and questions to help you bring your own self-created suffering into awareness, receive unconditional grace, reunite with all that arises, and bring it into every dimension of your life.

Highlights:

  • Identifying the unconscious cultural and personal stories at the core of shame and unworthiness
  • How love enters us through the cracks of crisis, loss, and despair
  • "Allow yourself to run out of time right now" - how the urgency of mortality awakens grace
  • "I don't know" - a simple contemplation for expanding into the unknown
  • What to do if you believe you've committed the absolutely unforgivable
  • Guided practices for restoring wholeness and inviting love's redemption

Profound insights into the nature of our human condition

I really enjoyed both the depth of the content and equally the warmth, humility and love in the tone of Adyashanti's voice. Highly recommend for anyone interested in learning more about their own nature and how the cultural mythology embedded in our subconscious effects our fundamental experience of life

Loved it! Topic not often dealt with directly.

Usually redemptive love is approached in a sort of tangential manner, but Adyashanti goes straight forward and touches upon it in a very direct and thorough way. The exercise at the end of the talk makes it a visceral experience, so as not to be just all theoretical. Bravo!

Beautiful.

Where does Healing the Core Wound of Unworthiness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's definitely one of the best. The content and the delivery worked together beautifully.

What did you like best about this story?

Adyashanti shared personal experiences and deep insights into those experiences. It was as though a really good friend was letting you into his personal process.

Have you listened to any of Adyashanti’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have. I liked this one a bit better because it was targeted on a specific topic.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not your typical movie material.

Any additional comments?

This is an excellent audiobook. I would highly recommend it.

Great, but how

Good concept, that gets you to think. However, Needs more practical experiences. Leaves the listener asking the question "Great, but how?".

Refreshingly Frank and Honest

Excellent delivery of excellent material. Sometimes the narrator's voice would sound raspy or shaky and I would have found it easier if he would have stopped to give it a rest and then re entered.

Wonderful, soul-inspiring and truly healing.

One of the most healing and relaxing books I've listened to. The author and narrator gives such a soothing and genuine performance. The idea he presents is truly inspiring for ones-self, family and humanity in general. If you struggle with guilt of past issues relating to family then this is the book for you.

Saving Grace

I was feeling pretty low and unworthy at the time of buying this. Having hit a brick wall, trying to move beyond my old patterns and beliefs,
I wasn’t sure about Adyashanti’s way of speaking at first, but I got used to it and was able to get much more from this book/recording than merely
Understanding his words.
I had a profound shift and flipped my thinking and obsessive thinking about my issues.
I found myself crying in the car on the way to and from work today. I have just cried my way through the meditation at the end ( all in an amazing way). I got so much from this recording. Quite transformative.
