Underneath the turmoil of thought, emotion, and personal will, there is a flow. If you're reading these words, you've probably felt it—the natural movement of life, the truth that beckons below the surface of things. What would happen if you were to stop avoiding this universal energy, and instead completely embrace it?

According to author and teacher Adyashanti, herein lies the heart of spiritual awakening—and it's likely to "end your world." Why? Because with spiritual awakening, instead of a new version of you, you find no version of you—your true nature beyond any point of view—"that which is continually partaking of all experience, in each and every instant."

Straight Talk on the Nature of Enlightenment

More and more people today have had a glimpse of this genuine kind of awakening, only to see it slip away after a few hours or days. Adyashanti calls this the "I got it/I lost it" phenomenon that perplexes so many of his students. For those caught between what he calls "non-abiding" awakening and the ultimate state of "abiding" enlightenment, Adyashanti offers The End of Your World—his first in-depth audio course about the remarkable yet enigmatic process of spiritual awakening.

With straight talk and penetrating insight, Adyashanti helps you navigate the pitfalls and cul-de-sacs that "un-enlighten" us along the journey, including: the trap of meaninglessness; how the ego can "co-opt" realization for its own purposes; the illusion of superiority that may accompany intense spiritual breakthroughs; and the danger of becoming "drunk on emptiness."

Inquiring Sincerely into Every Aspect of Your Life

"Full awakening comes when you sincerely look at yourself, deeper than you've imagined, and question everything," teaches Adyashanti. With 12 bold sessions about topics ordinarily kept private between student and teacher, The End of Your World is your invitation to join Adyashanti for an honest investigation of what you really are—and how to live when you discover it.

Program Highlights

I have bought this book several times and keep giving it away ... and everyone I have given it too comes back with a river of gratitude. If you are interested in ultimate Truth and Love beyond feeling, this teacher is a down to earth gem. Very practical pointers and guidance for anyone before, during or after awakening, when the world as you know it is gone and and again nothing is known ... and you are learning how to be in the world but not of it.

It is hard to talk about spiritual awakening because its very nature is experiential; descriptions of the process tend to solidify into concepts; it's easy for it to become something understood with the mind--a purely mental exercise. I loved this series because Adya acknowledges this and manages to describe the various pitfalls and stages of the journey, using metaphors that shone a light on issues I've encountered on my path. I had a number of "Aha!" moments while listening. I like the parallels he draws with Jesus and Buddha. The description of ways we get stuck were immensely helpful and enlightening for me.
