It is possible to access the same sense of well-being, clarity, inner freedom, and loving connection realized by the world's meditation masters. We can do this by shifting our awareness in the midst of our daily lives. Shift into Freedom presents innovative teacher Loch Kelly's training manual for actively participating in the evolution of your own consciousness.

Synthesizing insights from neuroscience and psychology with wisdom from the world's contemplative traditions, Shift into Freedom offers an accessible and remarkably powerful series of meditations that lead us to a little-known natural capacity called "awake awareness." Through an unfolding process of "small glimpses, many times," these exercises shift us from a thought-based knowing to an awareness-based way of operating in the world. With continued practice, we learn to "unhook" from our customary home in our ego-based identity, and then sustain an embodied presence and relatedness known as "open-hearted awareness." Loch Kelly teaches that this is "the meeting place of awakening and growing up, where we have the capacity to handle a fully emotional, intimate life and act with authenticity and compassion."

Learn more about:

  • How to separate awareness from thinking to realize that thoughts and emotions are not the center of who we are
  • How insights from neuroscience can help us learn how to embody awakening
  • Ego-identification, a pattern of thought that co-opts the body's boundary program and creates a mistaken identity
  • The paradox of "being home while returning home"
  • Finding the off-switch for the chattering mind
  • How to intentionally and immediately shift into peace of mind any time of your day
  • Awakening as a natural process of human development, which unfolds as waking up, waking in, and waking out
  • Meditation practices for all phases of the journey of awakening and embodiment
  • Four stages of spiritual growth: recognition, realization, stabilization, and expression
  • Untying the "knots" in our mindbody system to liberate us from our deepest doubts and fears
  • How to move from deliberate mindfulness to effortless mindfulness and heart mindfulness
  • How to effortlessly focus without using attention
  • Discovering your innate happiness that is not dependent on circumstances
  • How to welcome and liberate sub-personalities after initial awakening
  • A user's manual for your consciousness to help you free yourself from the limits of ego-identification and live from open-hearted awareness

The most important book of our times.

I believe this is the most important book that I have ever read. Mr. Kelly has distilled and simplified the process of "enlightenment" into a set of exercises that will really allow you to directly experience the shift from ego based consciousness to a state of pure awareness. I have spent my whole life seeking a change in consciousness and to be honest I did not have the discipline to "follow" a spiritual tradition. I am so relieved to know that this does not have to be the case. I always suspected it could be simpler.

On the first day of starting to read the book and do the exercises, I experienced a strong shift. I have suffered from severe depression throughout my life so the shift was a definite and welcome contrast. I suggest you go to Youtube to utilize Loch's videos for the written exercises. He is not teaching theory here, this is experiential.

These techniques could change the world and could be taught to almost anyone. I want to say, thank you, Loch Kelly, your efforts have made a huge difference in my life.

Tremendous book - highly recommended!

In this wonderful book, Loch Kelly does a masterful job of presenting ancient teachings in an accessible modern western vernacular, intertwining them with current psychology and the latest scientific learnings, along with proving practical guided practices to enable the reader to find out in their own experience what freedom and awakening is - which is the most important thing. I also just attended a workshop with Loch at NYI and he is a very gifted teacher. Highly recommended! Namaste!

Sad!

It always makes me sad when a meditation teacher tells his students that everybody can skip the first 10 or so stages of meditative development and go straight to the highest stages... What a terrible misconception of your "quick-fix times!"
