In the era of #MeToo, The Resistance, Time’s Up, and #BlackLivesMatter, we have to ask, “How do we meditate and calm our minds in the midst of chaos?” “Can mindfulness actually help those who encounter injustice daily?” “How does it help us find our purpose in the middle of all this madness?”

In Stay Woke, author Justin Michael Williams offers the Freedom Meditation technique, along with daily rituals to help you beat self-doubt, overcome the struggle, and wake up to the life you were really born to live.

Full Description

A no-nonsense guide to establishing a personal meditation practice, changing your life, and taking hold of your dreams. 
CONFESSION: This is not really an audiobook about meditation.
Yes, Justin Michael Williams is going to teach you everything you need to know about meditation—but if you came looking for a typical program on mindfulness, you’re in the wrong place.
We are modern people in a high-tech world. We have first world problems and long to-do lists. And if you grew up in struggle—overcoming homophobia, sexism, trauma, shame, depression, poverty, toxic masculinity, racism, or social injustice—you need a different type of meditation … one that doesn’t pretend the struggle doesn’t exist.
Now, Justin introduces Freedom Meditation—an approach that addresses disillusionment, social justice, and shame; strengthens intuition; cuts through self-doubt; and empowers you to make better decisions. Here you will discover:

  • The five myths that create roadblocks to meditation
  • How to actually find stillness when your mind is going crazy
  • What nobody tells you about “setting intentions” and the science of manifesting
  • Why you must turn toward toxic thoughts rather than just papering over them with positivity
  • The opportunity and danger of getting creative ideas during meditation
  • How meditation can help you find more success in your work and relationships
  • Daily rituals that cement and enrich your practice
  • How to use mindfulness to take action toward the causes you believe in and get sh!t done
Read by the author, this innovative audiobook guides you step by step in creating a custom meditation ritual that fits in with your busy (and sometimes messy!) life. Whether you’ve tried meditation but it never sticks, or you’ve heard about it but never gave it a shot, Stay Woke gives people of all genders, identities, colors, religions, ages, and economic backgrounds the tools to stop wasting time, overcome self-doubt, and wake up to the lives we were really born to live.
