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.

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!
Such precious, potent, practical wisdom. And Adyashanti's voice compels deep listening. This is a gift!
I cannot but listening with my opening geart whole night and after that I feel that is the first moment in my life I accept humanity as it is.
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
Oh, this book. OK, so I occasionally buy self-help-ish books to remind me to think positively about myself and others - it can be difficult to remember these days. It is so easy to sink into depression and negativity, which is why I suppose that's the default for many of us. But this author - THIS author - thinks you can be happy. Really happy. Really, really happy. If you want it. If you REALLY REALLY REALLY want it. You just have to sit down and think about it...REALLY REALLY REALLY think about it.....do you see where I'm going here? Not only is this book read in a less-than-enthusiastic monotone, but this author does just such an amazing job of saying ABSOLUTELY NOTHING over and over and OVER again! I really wanted to like it, and at least get some nugget of wisdom out of it that would give me a boost of happy for half a day or so, I REALLY REALLY did! But all I wound up doing is counting all the times the narrator (who is also the author) said "really." The man just could not make his point enough. If he made his point the first time this would be an interesting five-minute audiobook, but I guess to make it more worth a credit, he makes his point over and over, ad nauseum, and fills in all the blank spaces (of which there are many) with "really, really..." and...dead air. Yep. If you get this book, be prepared for lots of REALLY REALLY.......loooooong........paauuuuuuses. I kind of want to buy a thesaurus and send it to him. And black out the word "REALLY" and say "You can NEVER, EVER USE THIS WORD AGAIN!!" Do you want to feel better about yourself? Do you REALLY? Skip this book. I'm kind of feeling bad about myself right now for buying it and listening to it. Learn from my mistake.
It's definitely one of the best. The content and the delivery worked together beautifully.
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.
I have. I liked this one a bit better because it was targeted on a specific topic.
Not your typical movie material.
This is an excellent audiobook. I would highly recommend it.
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.
Again Adyashanti nails it with his gifted ability to break through and feel the relief of redemptive love simply by listening
Giraffe Gone Wild
Deep insight shared so simply. Loved the practices. This book is transformational and I am deeply grateful.
"An incredible book"
I've listened to this many times now as there's such a profound message in here. Every time I understand a little bit more.. I couldn't recommend this more highly. Make sure you listen more than once!
"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.
I loved listening to this. In this world full of hatred this book was very refreshing. I recommend this to anyone seeking a new spiritual beginning.
"It does what the title says!"
I listened to Adya's words not being able to stop. It is full of insight, even if I read all of his books and listened to many of his satsangs and radio talks. It gives me a fresh way to take on what he calls Unworthiness. I can't be be very grateful for this gem of love.
"Excellent discussion on topic of basic woundness"
Adyashanti does an excellent job in discussing that basic sense of shame and unworthiness that is so prevalent in the west and offers sound advice on how we might cure ourselves of this crippling attitude.
Very well narrated by Adyashanti himself
