The Direct Way
Join renowned spiritual teacher Adyashanti for a practice-based journey out of the thinking mind and into the awakened awareness beyond perceptual reality.
For renowned teacher Adyashanti, every single moment contains a doorway into spiritual awakening. But what does it actually mean to “wake up” to the truth of reality? And what does it take to recognize these opportunities?
In The Direct Way, Adya (as his students call him) offers a sequence of 30 practices intended to connect with and cultivate ever-greater awareness of the unseen dimensions of your being. From the simple expression of “I am,” to an exploration of the Spiritual Heart, and all the way into the fundamental ground of being, these exercises emphasize that the process of awakening takes “many small glimpses, experienced many times.” Adya concludes with practical pointers on how to integrate transcendent experiences into the everyday fabric of life—including your career, personal goals, and intimate relationships.
Here you will discover:
- How to dis-identify from conceptual, ego-based thinking
- Perceiving the ego as a tool to navigate consciousness rather than an obstacle
- The “knowing yet empty” quality of foundational awareness
- The surprising route to realizing awareness of the Spiritual Heart
- Feeling through the Spiritual Heart as a way to experience true interconnection
- The meaning of the Zen teaching phrase, “This very body is the Buddha”
- Exploring the exhilarating paradox of Being and Becoming
- How to establish anchor points to stabilize your journey into the Ground of Being
- What it means to live each day with “enlightened relativity”
- How awakening puts control of your experience in your hands—but also the responsibility for it
