Adyashanti asks us to let go of our struggles with life and open to the full promise of spiritual awakening: the end of delusion and the discovery and expression of our essential being. After 15 years as a spiritual teacher, Adyashanti has found that the simpler the teaching, the greater its power to initiate this awakening.
On Falling into Grace, he shares what he considers fundamental insights to "open ourselves to that mysterious element that enters in the hidden and quiet moments and sparks a revolution in the way that we perceive life." Wherever you may be on your own spiritual path, you will find in these sessions down-to-earth guidance on breaking the trance of ego, experiencing the raw energy of emotion, cultivating inner stability, transcending the world of opposites, and more.
In the same way that we fall into the arms of a loved one or drop our heads on the pillow at night, we can surrender into the beauty and truth of who and what we really are. Falling into Grace is a program that gets to the core of why we suffer, and allows us to explore Adyashanti's invitation "to be taken by a moment of grace and fall into a sense of life when it is not separate from you, when life is actually an expression of something indefinable, mysterious, and immense."
- The human dilemma–the concept of a separate self and the choice to stop believing the thoughts that perpetuate suffering
- “Taking the backward step” into the pure potential of the present moment
- Why spiritual awakening can be a disturbing process
- Intimacy and availability–feeling absolute union with every part of our experience
- True autonomy–the unique expression of our own sense of freedom
Adyashanti began teaching in 1996 at the request of his Zen teacher of 14 years. Adya's teachings have been compared to some of the early Ch'an (Zen) masters of China as well as teachers of Advaita Vedanta in India. His award–winning books include Emptiness Dancing, The End of Your World, and True Meditation.

Adyashanti never fails to captivate and shed light in the dark corners...all the scary parts soften. these tools are for everyone willing to learn. Very grateful for these teachings. (Posted on January 4, 2016)
Too short. Review by Leanne
I loved what he said and have listened to it twice already, but I was really surprised that it cost so much ($37) for an audio download that only lasted one hour and 18 minutes!! The CD itself is "on sale" for $46, discounted from a regular rate of $69.95! I don't think this is common for CD's sold at Sounds True so I an wondering why it's so expensive. Seems crazy from a teacher who talks about letting go of (thoughts and) things as being very important. (Posted on August 21, 2015)
Road map to Freedom Review by Seva
This book helped get me through my mother's funeral. The night before, I was wondering how I would get through the eulogy without breaking down. Then I read his section about playing with "not knowing". I immersed myself fully in this exercise, being totally present without jumping into a future thought. What resulted was complete peace. It was beautiful. The whole day flowed seamlessly.

Review for Falling into Grace Review by Mireya M
Yes, I love Adya but i do have a question. I thought this was going to be an audio book is there one? I guess i got confused because the art work is the book cover. (Posted on June 5, 2014)

Review for Falling into Grace Review by Kristen
The content is great but I have to admit I didn't finish it because I found the voice of the narrator really hard to listen to, it just irritated me. Wish I'd bought it as a paper or e-book rather than audio. His ideas are wonderful but not in this format for me... (Posted on March 9, 2014)
Review for Falling into Grace Review by Joyce G
I find Adyshanti difficult to listen to because his voice is rather monotone. I'm sure there is much wonderful material in this program, but I still have not listened to the whole thing. (Posted on February 9, 2014)
