Description

This book is "an invitation to openness." It offers the jewel of Amoda Maa's teaching—how to be fully awake and fully human, open in a way that's the key to freedom and to what's most needed in our troubled times. Unlike having no boundaries, this openness transforms reactivity, ends separation, leads us to our true authority, and guides us with the intelligence of love.

Praise for Amoda Maa

About Embodied Enlightenment:

“Amoda’s latest book Embodied Enlightenment—for which I’ve had the honor to write the Foreword—is a genuine and helpful guide to secular spirituality, providing deep insight into how it is possible to live authentically in an increasingly chaotic world. I have no doubt this book will touch the hearts of the growing number of people in search of peace and well-being. I have also been personally touched by the depth and clarity of her teachings and her capacity to inspire audiences from a wide range of backgrounds. She is at the forefront of ground-breaking work at the intersection of spirituality and psychology.” —John Welwood, PhD (best-selling author, and pioneer in the field of East-West psychology and spirituality)

“The quality of Amoda Maa Jeevan’s writing is impressive, and I consider her book Embodied Enlightenment to be at the leading-edge of a new spiritual conversation that is of utmost relevance to today’s world." —Matt McKay, PhD (founder of New Harbinger Publications, and clinical psychologist)

"Truly one of the best books of 2017—and we receive a lot of books! Inspiring, powerful and transformational all at once!" —Meghan McDonald, founder and editor of Conscious Lifestyle Magazine

 "Embodied Enlightenment eloquently challenges us to honestly and intimately meet our experience just as it is, and to awaken out of the trance of the perpetually seeking separate self. This is a deeply illuminating description of how an awakened life transmutes the ordinary arenas of relationships, work, sex, money, the body, and life purpose. A beautifully written, inspiring, and distinctly feminine call to consciously embody the unfolding edge of evolution.  I highly recommend it!" —John J. Prendergast, PhD, author of In Touch, adjunct professor of psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies

"Ancient traditions may not adequately support their awakening in the midst of 'real-world' concerns such as health, finances, relationships, et cetera. Amoda Maa is one of the brightest of a new generation of spiritual seekers who are meeting that need. She has been prepared for this role in a crucible of personal transformation, and is now fulfilling it admirably." —Rick Archer, creator and host of Buddha at the Gas Pump

“The next step after Eckhart Tolle.” —Erwin H, founder of Awareness Now


About Amoda’s teaching, from attendees at live events:

"Amoda is one of the most clear and profound nonduality teachers of our time. Like a very sharp knife she delves into the heart of things."

“Amoda Maa is one of the most important spiritual teachers of our times. Oprah needs to interview her!”

“Amoda’s teaching is so utterly clear and direct, beautifully weaving the masculine advaita with the feminine embodiment—a teaching for these times.”
