Our most cherished times are those occasions when we feel open, loving, free of worry yet able to respond when needed. Loch Kelly calls this the expression of open-hearted awareness, our natural foundation of mind that arises effortlessly whenever we step out of the usual mode of consciousness known as ego-identification. Created as a stand-alone program or a complement to his book of the same name, Shift into Freedom is a progressive training guide that offers “small glimpses, many times” to help us shift out of our chattering mind and into who we really are. Join this innovative teacher to explore more than 20 meditations including:

• Awareness Yoga—a foundational practice in moving awareness

• Embodied Presence—a practice for deeply feeling unity and acceptance

• Unhook, Drop, Open, See, Include, Know, Let Be—a way to shift levels of mind that culminates in living from open-hearted awareness  

“The goal of these meditations is not to transcend the human condition,” explains Loch Kelly, “but to discover how to live a fully intimate human life.” Shift into Freedom gives you the tools to navigate your life with clarity and unconditional love.

Truly a Gift... Review by David Klein

Rating

Loch's teachings are a gift. A gift of ancient and yet timeless wisdom which has been distilled down into it's simplest and most practical form. Loch provides many different "pointings" or "doorways" all potentially leading to the same destination...open-hearted awake awareness, or perhaps more simply put...everything you've really ever wanted. It's just a matter of finding what works for you, putting it into practice, and then seeing for yourself if it's really worth it. There is no magic here, but it's all really magical. Give it a shot!

A Treasure! Review by Ann Mcneal

Rating

Do you ever have the feeling that the state of well-being and happiness is close, all-around, but you can't quite find it? I do, and Loch's seemingly simple queries and pointings beckon me to shift from the state of "not-quite" into the wonder of awareness. Loch amazes me again and again with the clarity and surprise of his teachings. This audiobook contains short exercises and instructions, along with concise explanations of how it all fits together. It is a treasure! (Posted on August 21, 2016)

Essential Guideposts to Awakening Review by Linda

Rating

Among the many insightful and articulate lessons offered by Loch Kelly in this training CD, he mentions that the shift into freedom is comparable to upgrading our mental operating system so that we can enjoy a fuller and more awakened experience of life. In the short time that I have been listening to this CD and practicing the collection of glimpses that comprise the training, I already recognize a "rewriting" of the habitual mental acrobatics that I have come to (begrudgingly) accept as the chatter of my brain. These are not complicated or lengthy meditations; they are streamlined inquiries into how we've fallen into habits of thinking and doing, and if we just untie the knots induced by misinformation, we will begin to sense a greater and vaster awareness that is always available and present.

Loch skillfully instructs us to consider alternatives to the narrow mind field between our ears and proceeds to give detailed suggestions to guide us up, away from, and out of the confined space of continuous ruminations. These meditations are nugget-sized pointers/glimpses that trigger an opening into the vaster spaciousness of non-dual awareness. The trigger allows the awareness to occur, and once glimpsed, the encouragement to return again and again to that awareness is ensured. This is true development of the spirit and the psyche and may very well be the catalyst for the awakening of many. (Posted on August 21, 2016)

My heart bubbled up with the most simple kind of pure happiness Review by Jeff

Rating

These guided meditations point you to look around in your experience and do very specific little experiments with your attention and awareness. The instructions are so clear and specific - its like a little guided tour of your own consciousness. The methods shifted my awareness into a much more open and relaxed place - and then my heart bubbled up with the most simple kind of pure happiness. Its like the essence of meditation without any of the baggage. (Posted on August 19, 2016)

Peace Review by Thomas Hessmer

Rating

Loch's techniques guided me through "non-meditation meditation." Simple and easy with varied methods of getting out of one's mind and into spacious peace. Highly recommended for lazy meditators like me. If one method does not work for you at one time, there are many others he guides you through that may (that was my experience). Again, highly recommended for inexperienced and experienced meditators alike. (Posted on August 16, 2016)

Expert Guidance, Effortless Awareness Review by Sam Bodian

Rating

I cannot overstate the value of the guided meditations and “glimpses” that Loch Kelly provides in this audiobook. These brief exercises are at once incredibly simple and deeply profound. They will undoubtedly benefit beginner and experienced meditators alike. The training that Loch provides in this audiobook, and in the accompanying book of the same title is the sort of thing one expects can only be found in the mountains of Nepal, teachings reserved for the advanced student who has spent years scrubbing temple floors and sitting in silence. But no, here are the teachings and instructions available for less than the price of a movie ticket or a good dinner!

Honestly, listening to and practicing Loch’s exercises for a few short sessions has saved me years of searching, seeking, and meditating...waiting for something special to happen. As you’ll discover, greater awareness; compassion; and understanding are closer than you think. Highly recommended! (Posted on August 16, 2016)

Audio accompaniment to the book is well worth a purchase Review by Ann

Rating

The audio accompaniment to the book is well worth a purchase. I haven't done a complete comparison between the book and the audio, but I do know that at least many of the guided meditations are included in both. However, being able to listen to the meditations rather than read them allows me to get out of my analytical mind and explore consciousness much more freely. If you're serious about awakening, let Loch's warm, calming voice guide your inner work. (Posted on August 11, 2016)

Shifting Made Easy! Review by Nishant Patel

Rating

These glimpse practices and meditations are superbly well thought out and offer, with it's simplicity, the ACTUAL recognition that awake awareness is our essential nature. Loch has provided a compilation that is comprehensive and enables individuals to experience for themselves the freedom that comes from the recognition of Awake Awareness. Through this audio program, it feels as if Loch is hand holding you into the re-discovery of who you are and serves as a supportive guide that can be revisited for guidance when needed. His guidance takes away the esoteric nature of awakening and makes it accessible to those with an open mind and open heart to these pointings. This is a very good complement to the actual book Shift into Freedom. (Posted on August 11, 2016)

Extremely helpful! Review by Samantha

Rating

A bountiful amount of practices, skillfully presented, and to the point. I have frequently found myself taken aback (literally and figuratively), while listening to the audios (as I have in Loch's meetings), which promote "unhooking" or "dropping" into your essential awareness. I had originally not bought the Training CD's, thinking the book would be enough, but the CD's provide pure practice, practice, and more practice, so I am truly glad I did. I was missing a huge opportunity. (Posted on August 11, 2016)
