Publisher's Summary

Constructed around a series of late night conversations around a camp fire between Cheryl Simone and Sadhguru Vasudev on an Island in the middle of a Western North Carolina lake near her mountain home, Midnights with the Mystic is the most thorough exposition of the teachings of India's most sought after mystic.

Sadhguru challenges us to embrace the possibility that to each of us is available a higher realm of reality, a peak of consciousness; an entre into the realm of freedom and bliss. Concrete and down-to-earth, Midnights with the Mystic both provides listeners with an introduction to profound spiritual teaching and a personal glimpse of a charismatic guru.

Sadhguru is a fascinating subject

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

Maybe. Anytime Sadhguru was speaking, I was in rapt attention. Cheryl Simone really got on my nerves. I experienced her as a needy new age groupie and her quest for enlightenment was one annoying cliche after the another.

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

See above

Do you think Midnights with The Mystic needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Great advice, but too many interruptions

Sadhguru's advice and his perception is just too good. He sees the world and the life around him from a completely different point of view, which is refreshing and in many ways eye opening.

I agree that the book is written by Cheryl, but she gets in the way too much between the listener and Sadhguru. A simple question answer approach would've been perfect.

I also understand that the experience that Cheryl had with Sadhguru changed her life (good for her), but the reader/listener doesn't need the details, which were not really important to the subject at hand.
Just my opinion

Wonderful, Different and interesting

Listening to this, I enjoyed it very much. It is designed different than most books, for she speaks and tells the story and opens the story as it is happening all at the same time. It is kind of entertaining but full of wisdom and a step for self growth and knowledge. Great Listen

A Must Listen for every human

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's hard for us to understand spiritualism. Primarily because of our logical thinking, our hesitation to believe what we cannot perceive and our already existing thoughts, perceptions and understanding of the world.<br/>Sadhguru helps us break away from all this and see the world the way it really is.

What did you like best about this story?

A beautiful conversation. I hardly felt like I was listening to a book.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Midnights with The Mystic?

This has given me a glimpse of something that is beyond my perception and encourages me to want to experience that.
