"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.
"Loved it! Topic not often dealt with directly."
Caution Spiritual Seekers: You Might Just Find What You're Looking For! Underneath the turmoil of thought, emotion, and personal will, there is a flow. If you're reading these words, you've probably felt it - the natural movement of life, the truth that beckons below the surface of things. What would happen if you were to stop avoiding this universal energy, and instead completely embrace it?
"Experiences with altered spiritual awareness"
Beneath all our bustling thoughts and the distracting dramas of the world, an ever-present stillness beckons us to our true home. "Meditation is a tool for returning to our essential nature," says Adyashanti. With Guided Meditations, this groundbreaking spiritual teacher offers four immersive audio sessions of meditations created to enrich your practice and help you become a more open, loving, and benevolent presence in the world.
Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery and expression of our essential being. After 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening. On Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights to "open ourselves to that mysterious element that enters in the hidden and quiet moments and sparks a revolution in the way that we perceive life."
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."
"Satsang w/ Adyashanti"
The life of Jesus offers each one of us a map to the direct realization of our eternal and divine nature. On Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti excavates the deep, mythic underpinnings of the Gospels to show how we can all find in the story of Jesus the spark for our own spiritual unfolding. Jesus crossed all of the boundary lines that separated the people of his time because he viewed the world from the perspective of what unites us, not what divides us.
"Review of Resurrecting Jesus"
What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached.
"Very Nice, Different and Refreshing"
In The Meditation Summit: Volume II, Sounds True publisher and founder Tami Simon speaks with 10 leading meditation teachers about their personal understanding of this practice - each with a complete guided meditation. Practitioners of all levels will benefit from the abundance of insight and guidance provided by these diverse voices.
"Helpful bites and opportunity to try different meditations"
We've been taught that awakening is difficult, teaches Adyashanti, and that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of our experience here and now. In this refreshing "non-meditation" session, Adyashanti invites you to let go of all techniques, even the concept of yourself as a meditator, and just let everything be as it is.
To be spiritually awake is to deeply feel your connection with the whole of life. The One of Us is an exploration of this sacred connection as it expresses through two human partners. In their first full-length audio-learning program, Adyashanti and Mukti present six sessions to help each of us - whether preparing for or currently in a relationship - to realize and honor this connection, to protect it, and to begin to move, speak, and act in alignment with the love that lives all of us.
"Brilliant if not listening from the mind only"
More people are "waking up" spiritually, discovering a sense of identity beyond any ideas of a seperate self. In the Dawning of Awakening, Adyashanti describeswhat he calls the virtual reality of everyday exsistence, and what happens when we begin to emerge from this dream into a much vaster world.
"Helpful Brief Introduction to Adyashanti's Concept"
A contemplative journey into self-inquiry and the "way of subtraction". Adayshanti invites us to explore the original purpose of meditation: a gateway to the objectless freedom of being...of awareness itself, beyond the notion of "myself".
