Publisher's Summary

A growing number of people are beginning to see things in a radically different way. In other words, more and more of us are starting to "wake up" spiritually - to discover an entirely new identity beyond the usual sense of who we think we are. But what is spiritual awakening, really? How does it happen - and what are the consequences? Is it possible to attune to this dimension of experience at any moment?

In Waking Up, Volume 1, Sounds True publisher and founder Tami Simon speaks with seven teachers about their personal understandings of spiritual awakening - how it takes place, what changes (and what doesn't), and how their experiences can inspire and inform our own realizations.

Volume 1 guests and topics:

"A Radical Shift in Identity" with Adyashanti

"Loving Ourselves into Freedom" with Tara Brach

"A Freedom That Leaves Nothing Out" with Reginald A. Ray

"Awake, Yes, But Keep Practicing" with Sally Kempton

"Small Glimpses, Many Times" with Loch Kelly

"The Death of the Little Me" with Eckhart Tolle

"The Mandala of Awakening" with Jack Kornfield

A radical shift in identity. The direct experience of unity with all things. Unexplainable joy and a blissful ease of being. These are just some of the ways in which people have described the experience of spiritual awakening. But is it the same for everyone? What if we've had only glimpses of "waking up?" How does the process unfold - and does it end? Join us in Waking Up for an exciting investigation of these profound questions and more.

interesting and informative

This was an excellent set of interviews conducted by the founder of Sounds True. some very strong leaders in the realm of spiritual teachings were interviewed, and a tremendous amount of information was given about what Spiritual Awakening means. I am searching for follow-ups regarding ways to achieve these types of spiritual Awakenings as these interviews provided very limited information in that area but this was extremely helpful and interesting.

Disappointingly unenlightening

Oh dear, I have been listening to Sounds True for years but this first series of interviews will be my last. Some speakers are, surprisingly, inarticulate and others retreat into the jargon of their own belief system and some ......EGO....... or what!?
