Publisher's Summary

Jeff Foster invites you to forget everything you know, everything you've been taught, and everything you've ever heard about spiritual awakening, oneness, enlightenment, non-duality, and Advaita, and to consider a new possibility: the possibility of absolute freedom, right now, right here, in the midst of this very ordinary life.

Using everyday language and drawing on both personal experience and age-old wisdom, Foster shares the possibility that all the seeking and longing of the mind can come to an absolute end with the falling away of the sense of being a separate individual, and a plunge into unconditional love. And in that plunge - which is totally beyond anything you have ever imagined - this so-called ordinary life reveals its great Secret. Written with stunning clarity and aliveness, this book is a love letter to the exhausted spiritual seeker who is simply longing to come home.

LOST FOR WORDS

I really don't have all the words needed to express how much this audio means to me. Jeff has actuslly answered most of the questions ( the important ones ) I was looking for. Must also let you know, I had to listen to this message from beginning to end. Not taking it as a weekly or monthly reading task. It was very inportant for me to hear and take in the answers to all the questions stirring within as soon as possible. I was not dissapointed. Thank you so much for taking the time to cover every question, every doubt a person could have in their search for PEACE. Thank The Lord for This book.

Too intellectual

There is something about the book that makes it difficult to listen. Lots of words but not too much of anything. I would not recommend this book.

Not What I expected

A lot of talk about non duality concepts but I didn't find anything practical here that can help me. A lot of books talk about non duality but also give you practical exercises you can do to actually 'get it', this book doesn't do it

Amazing

This book requires a simple mind to understand, but once this understanding takes place, it’s life altering

VERY CONFUSING

What disappointed you about An Extraordinary Absence?

IT DARGA ALONG WITH REALLY NO GUIDANCE TO REVEAL WHAT HE IS TAKING ABOUT

NO

What aspect of Stephen Paul Aulridge Jr.’s performance would you have changed?

MAKING IT CLEARER FOR THE LISTENER

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from An Extraordinary Absence?

MOST

Any additional comments?

NO
