Adya's teachings are a blessing in any format, but
I especially appreciate audio books for my "spiritual reference library." While I typically practice silent sitting, I cherish the three guided meditations provided with this audio book. I am pleased to be able to enjoy them on either my laptop or my Android.

Adyashanti has much further opened my life. He both illuminated what to do and not to do, and this is extremely helpful to me.

I hadn't heard of Adyashanti until recently but he's quickly become one of my favorite teachers. This program along with his other program "The End of Your World" have really helped me to understand my own glimpses into the true nature of reality. In order to have these glimpses, one of the keys is to "allow everything to be as it is" as Adyashanti tells us. Highly recommend this program.

A release from the strictures, unspoken commandments cluttering up the landscape of mediation. As full of grace as his work usually is.
By Scott Plummer

Five stars because there is nothing 'wrong' with what Adyashanti proposes (and a lot 'right' with it).
However, what really is at the heart of nonduality?
Sit and be aware of presence.
I knew an old guy once who said he didn't have time for hobbies, that he'd rather sit down and 'rest' - about the same thing as 'nonduality'.
So five stars for Adyashanti - but did you really need to be told this?

It is the first time I have heard Adyashanti and I am now a fan. I love his approach - "ease" . I have just ordered another set of CDs of his and it just arrived. Thank you for the opportunity to hear him.

This audio is fantastic. I have been one of the sort of meditators that Adyashanti talks about who meditated for 20 years without truly being transformed. Listening to this audio and following the meditations has been just amazing for me, has led me to a space of stillness inside that I never knew has been waiting for me all that time.

I could not recommend this highly enough.
I came to Adyashanti through The End of Your World. I have bought that many meditation books, tapes, cds and even dvds over the years. This turns it all on its head. My life is now becoming a meditation.

Adyashanti has knack for explaining what is unexplainable. I love listening to him. And, I like that he has a well-grounded background in more conventional practice and yet has found an approach that cuts through all that formalized training and gets right to the heart of "what it is."

He has wonderful teachings to share and a very clear way of expressing the intangibles. I listened to this in audio format and although I sometimes grew impatient at how often he repeated the same concepts, perhaps it is sometimes necessary to hear things more than once to fully comprehend them.

This was not what I expected or wanted. The first CD's were all lecturing format and the third CD which was supposed to be guided meditations (I thought) were actually more of the same type of lecturing. There wasn't much chance to experience meditation as the guide was talking/lecturing constantly.

Disappointed in this...the entire meditation could have been accomplished in about 5 minutes - too much repetition.

This comment refers only to disc 1 (I doubt if I will get to the other 2). I did not find this helpful mainy because of Adyashanti's approach of "going beyond meditation" to to meditative enquiry" which brings the mind back in, which is just the oposite of what meditation is. I have heard Adyshanti speak (on disc) several times and have been favourably impressed so this comes as a "dissapointment".
By Jan Bergeron

The first talk, on effortless effort, is pretty standard to any meditation practice. The second talk, on meditative self-inquiry, I didn't connect with at all. The guided meditations were pretty useless, directing us to do certain things, but not how to do them.
