What's awakening really like in a world of supermarkets, messy relationships, work and global challenges?
So often our only accounts of life after awakening come from spiritual teachers or gurus. This book shines an intimate light into the lives of 20 ordinary people from all over the world who have awoken to their True Nature. They are musicians, office workers, comedians, mail carriers, mentors, students, artists and writers. They share their reflections on life, death, spiritual teachers, meditation, emotions, motivation, therapy, sex, humor, money, creativity, God, parenting, suffering and more.
Are you curious about enlightenment and would you like to know more?
Do you think enlightenment is unobtainable or only for the chosen few?
Have you recently awoken to your True Nature and now feel disoriented or alone?
Would you welcome some company and context as you walk your first steps on this new terrain?
If you want to know what life after the end of the spiritual search is really like,
then read What's Awakening Really Like?
"While the experience of living as vastness is certainly extraordinary, it is also simply extra ordinary. It is truly a waking up to something supremely basic and absolutely fundamental. This shift is open to everyone, including those who may never desire to don the mantle of spiritual teacher. This book is a wonderful window into just those people, an anthropological account of the Boundless as it wends its way through the nooks and crannies of the everyday. I invite you to read this book and see if it tunes you into the bread crumbs of that which has cleverly been hidden everywhere in plain sight."

"When your journey to spiritual awakening has taken you to a place you don't know, read this book. You are not alone in this. In the book, you will find good company in the open, honest, and sometimes disillusioning reports about what happens when parts or the whole idea of a self falls away. A book that is very needed to give some orientation about what happens on the way to awakening and how to deal with it."
