Audible Editor Reviews

Zen teacher Mel Ash's immersive, step-by-step instructional guide on how to incorporate the core tenets of the heavily Eastern-influenced Beat philosophy into everyday life is written with the passionate zeal of a Kerouac novel.

Nicholas Tecosky's buoyant, soulful performance enlivens the prose as well as the unique, distinctly Beat exercises Ash encourages the listeners to take part in, including "getting naked" and conducting genealogical research.

Those more interested in practical applications of the Beat philosophy rather than the history of its founders will find this to be an enriching listen.

Publisher's Summary

Beat Spirit exposes the truth that life doesn't have to feel standardized, patented, predictable, interminable or robotic for today's new Beats. Listeners will howl with Ginsberg and take off on the road with Kerouac, as they discover new frontiers of thought and spirit with Beat Spirit. It kick-starts the rebellious, non-conformist and fiercely independent streak that lives within everyone.
