Description

The Ken Wilber Sessions—An Unprecedented Audio Learning Experience

Before the birth of the universe, there existed your Original Face, the limitless Self that has been present throughout the unfolding of inert matter into life—and that continues to dwell within us at every level of consciousness. Where is this grand evolution taking us, and how can each of us participate in it more fully? On Kosmic Consciousness, Ken Wilber invites you to find out.

Since the first publication of his groundbreaking ideas at the age of 23, Ken Wilber has sought to bring together the world's far-ranging spiritual teachings, philosophies, and scientific truths into one coherent and all-embracing vision. This "integral" map of the Kosmos (the universe that includes the physical cosmos as well as the realms of consciousness and Spirit) offers an unprecedented guide to discovering your highest potentials.

Now, this legendary author invites you to discover these insights in his first full-length audio learning course. In 10 fascinating sessions, Wilber pursues questions especially relevant to spiritual seekers: What are the most effective tools for "jumping" to the next level in your spiritual, creative, and cognitive development? Does prayer work? How do women and men experience consciousness differently? Is subtle energy real and, if so, how do we harness it? Why is developing "witness consciousness" so crucial for self-realization? Can we cultivate infinite love by loving one, finite person? What, exactly, does "kosmic consciousness" feel like?

One of our greatest possibilities, teaches Wilber, is "to balance and harmonize our experiences at whatever stage of growth we are in—and to deepen our capacity for compassion, consciousness, and care." For Ken Wilber's many avid readers, and anyone who has been waiting for a highly accessible invitation to his work, here is one of the most significant thinkers of our time—spontaneous, passionate, irreverent—sharing a feast of ideas to inspire you on your evolution toward Kosmic Consciousness.

The audio is relatively easy to understand and I recommend it as a way to get to know Ken Wilber's work. I hadn't read any of his books before listening but now I'm hooked.

Ken is a genius of the highest caliber. He created an abstract framework on which to classify all events in reality. This is the equivalent of creating something like mathematics which has no reality except in the mind yet allows a deep measurement and understanding of natural events.

Before listening to this, I was awakened but still confused about the underlying nature of humans. After listening to this, all experience made sense. I was able to classify where people are developmentally and "see" where they are stuck. I knew the next step for them on their path.

This is possibly the best product I've ever bought. For under $100 I was taken from chaotic thinking into brilliant clarity which has only deepened over the past few years.
