Publisher's Summary

In August 2003, virtually overnight, Jan Frazier experienced "a dramatic falling away of fear" - not just the immediate fear of her annual medical test but, as she learned as time went on, her fear of everything. She was "flooded with a causeless joy that has never left me." In this audiobook the commonplace belief that enlightenment is only for saints comes apart at the seams. Anyone can be enlightened, and all we need to do is ask. This rare and beautiful account puts Jan Frazier solidly in the tradition of enlightened teachers from J. Krishnamurti to Byron Katie. Guns and money aren't going to buy peace of mind. Giving up fear is.

Helpful Addition to my study of "awakening"

Would you consider the audio edition of When Fear Falls Away to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version, and at this time I'm not certain that I would need to.

Would you recommend When Fear Falls Away to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend this work for anyone that is studying awakening, transformation, consciousness, and spirituality, and requires continued reading material.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked the second half of the book a lot more than the first half. I enjoyed the references to excellent spiritual quotes by Tolle, Rumi , and others. I occasionally felt that the readers tone did not accurately reflect the depth of her experience.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes. I had an extreme reaction to the author's deep understanding of "awakening" and her ability to describe many thoughts and feelings that I have experienced. I was repeatedly thankful that someone knew that all this stuff is going on! I felt great joy throughout many parts of the second half of this book! I was very moved when the author explained how her efforts to resist living in her inner world were exhausting.

Any additional comments?

I did not LOVE the first half of this book, because listening to the author's specific hardships about cancer made me uncomfortable, nevertheless, it is hard for me to say more objectively how others would feel about the first half of this book, that clearly fanned the flame of "my" dragon.

A delightful journey to where you already are

Jan gives us a glimpse into the intimacy of her own awakening with candor and eloquence. Her writing is soaked through with deep peace and freedom. She describes her awakening unapologetically, while giving hope to those of us still in between worlds. Thank you, Jan.

Wise & loving teachings about spiritual awakening.

Jan has a gift for writing. Important truths are conveyed in easy to understand ways. I enjoyed her voice.

Awful!!!

This is not about fear falling away. It is about an abstract writer who took 100 pages out of her journal and read them. It was one of the most boring books I have ever listened to. Her voice was extremely monotone and monotonous. I kept listening hoping it would get better. It never did. I wish I could get my money back😡!!

Disappointing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I wanted to, but she is just not believable.

If you’ve listened to books by Jan Frazier before, how does this one compare?

No

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Author "feels" depressed and sounds rather self obsessed.

Did When Fear Falls Away inspire you to do anything?
