We often think of saints as rare individuals whose gifts far exceed our own, and St. Francis is no exception. But for Fr. Richard Rohr, a prolific author and renowned speaker, the life and teachings of this beloved figure offer an authentic spirituality we can all embody.

I confess-the first time I tried to listen to this I could not. Rohr's delivery reminded me of sanctimonious theologians of my youth & adulthood. After about a year I tried again and found it resonated with me. I am glad I gave it another listen.

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

Easily one of the best listens I've had in the past few years. Also one I will re-listen to again. The author is clearly human and his examples are real. Definitely worth your investment.

While the ideas are not new the 6 steps are invaluable to one attempting to recreate their life or get back in step. While there were times that it felt like an infomercial please disregard that and continue listening. You will be glad you did!

Fear is the source of all of the negative agreements we've made with life. It can alienate us from the joy that is our birthright. When we are able to look at our lives without fear or judgments, we realize that reality can be whatever we want it to be. Beyond Fear leads seekers of the Toltec way of freedom and joy on their spiritual journey into a state of empowerment.

AnamThubten, in remarkably easy-to-understand language, provides teachings for doing exactly that, based on the wisdom of the Buddhist traditions. He illuminates the path of going beyond the misconceptions of the ego to experience the reality of our true nature, which is already enlightened. He communicates with clarity, humor, and refreshing honesty, lighting the way to a life full of love, compassion, and true satisfaction.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Power of Your Subconscious Mind to be better than the print version?

I found it beneficial to have this in audio. I was able to concentrate faster in 20 minute segments easily.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

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

Jason has a nice voice and keeps you engaged.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several. One about the effect that resentment has and how to release it. Another had to do with bringing things to pass through your thoughts. Finally the thoughts on growing older was right on target.

Any additional comments?

Extremely insightful in many places. Looking back at my youth and enjoying my 50's with more passion and vibrance, I think this title could be a wonderful addition to your self-help library.
