Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Glorious Grandeur of Ultra Spirituality

In case you haven't noticed, the New Age has become the Old Age. But don't recycle your crystals just yet! His Enlightenedness JP Sears is ushering in the Newer Age, blinding us with the dawn-like brilliance that is Ultra Spirituality.

Ultra Spiritual JP Sears Flawlessly Reads to You in the English Language

Let's face it, most of us don't have time to actually read anything ourselves. With this unabridged reading by the author himself, you can sit back on your zafu and let Ultra Spiritual JP's wisdom passively sink in, as you better yourself through His Enlightenedness' teachings on:

  • Competitive spirituality - the Ultra Spiritual foundation that the rest of your Ultra Spiritual path rests on
  • Dreaming up your awakening - how to engineer your carefully contrived spiritual narrative
  • Rigidly yogic yoga - the moisture-filled cloud formation that drops rain upon your river so your flow can flow
  • Following the light to the greener spiritual pastures of veganism
  • He-ness, financial levity, deathliness, and other qualities of the quality guru
  • Mindfullessness - all of the fullness of mindfulness with none of the mind

With How to Be Ultra Spiritual, His Enlightenedness JP Sears brings the heart and soul of ancient spirituality back to life with a progressive aggression, replacing the diluted uselessness of modern spirituality with the waaay more spiritual wisdom of Ultra Spirituality. Be sure to thank him when you see him.

I wanted to love it. His YouTube series are great

What would have made How to Be Ultra Spiritual better?

I know he was trying to do the "yogi spiritual" voice but all the sentences just seem to run together. The chapters just dragged on and on turning his reading at times into the Charlie Brown adult teacher "wah wah wah wah wah wah" speech.. There were a couple of other speaker parts that I feel were helpful in the stories.

What was most disappointing about JP Sears’s story?

That I enjoy his YouTube series and disliked the book. The content is actually funny but for some reason it didn't work as well for the audio reading.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His voice inflection is very drone.

What character would you cut from How to Be Ultra Spiritual?

I thought all the characters listed were fine

Any additional comments?

His videos are hilarious but it doesn't seem to transfer well to audio or maybe I am not enlightened spiritually enough to appreciate his great teachings through this intended platform.

A step-by-step guide to becoming ultra-spiritual!

..loved listening to this piece read by the JP, himself - satirical, weird, and intelligent - reminiscent of the writings of Stephen Colbert - plus you totally learn how to be the most spiritual of spiritualists! Highly recommend! 🌸

Profound Wisdom from a Wise Guy

I busted out laughing while listening and while remembering parts at random times of the day. I cheered and literally applauded, especially at the end of Chapter 10. I was trully saddened by finishing it so quickly. I cannot wait for the next book to come out!

Not Spiritual enough.

I was expecting my third eye to open to the infinite cosmos and reveal God playing backgammon with Alan Watts. I'm still giving 5 starts because it's arbitrary.

Love me some JP Sears

What made the experience of listening to How to Be Ultra Spiritual the most enjoyable?

If you like JP Sears, you will love this audio book. Don't hesitate, just click the button and buy it. It's a fun romp through the new age and will make you feel happy all over. I discovered JP Sears a few years ago from his viral video of the same name. He came to the indi bookstore in my little backwater to promote his book and I really wanted to see him! But I was out of town when he was here! Oh noooes! But listening to his audio book made up for that deficit and I continue to follow JP Sears on Youtube. Listen to this book read by the author or else.

It was ok.

I like JP Sears, and I think he is brilliant when it comes to psychology and to thinking in general; which is contradictory for a religious, meat eating, egotistical, politically conservative individual. I also really like his video skits acted out with humor, they have messages of genius hidden in them... almost like parables found in a holy book I once read. However, the book was just ok, well, in my book anyway. But, it was his first, so to the flip side, not bad.

I would have given it a perfect score if

I find his YouTube channel even more funny. This book was funny, somewhat offensive, and most of all unlocked my ultra spiritual superpowers.

Stick to sarcastic videos

Would you try another book written by JP Sears or narrated by JP Sears?

Absolutely not

Would you ever listen to anything by JP Sears again?

I like his videos

What didn’t you like about JP Sears’s performance?

The droll sarcasm works well in 3 minute youtube videos, but not for several hours of audiobook. The very few perfromances by other actors were much better, do more of that JP, get GOOD voice actors to recite hilarious stories - talk less yourself.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, though to be honest I didn't come in with many expectations.

Any additional comments?

What I did like is that it does highlight pretty much every single cliche in the health and spirituality world today... but again for ALL those hours... 1-2 hours would have been more tolerable. Still, "Harmony Shakti" will always have a special place in my heart.
