Description

"This eminently readable book is required reading for whoever aspires to participate in the adventure of global mind change . . ." —Frederick Franck, M.D., author of The Zen of Seeing

"A gift to meditators, who will find important elucidations to the meaning of Yoga practices."  —Henryk Skolimowski, author of Eco-Philosophy


Ego transcendence, self-transparency, freedom from anxiety, openness, emotional availability, bodily presence, the ability for genuine intimacy, reverence for all life, the capacity for service, and love — this, says Feuerstein, is what the integral consciousness of our next evolutionary goal looks like.

In this book, he looks straight into the eye of the dragons in our path: How are we to balance two fundamental and complementary spiritual urges that are driving us — one to forsake ego and world in favor of the formless infinite, the other to integrate mystical experience with daily living?

Review highlights

"This may look like a book on Yoga and Buddhism, but its perspective is essentially that of Jean Gebser (possibly the most important thinker of the 20th century) . . . In George Bernard Shaw's sense, Feuerstein is a creator of new mind, and deserves to be regarded as an artist as much as a philosopher." —Colin Wilson

"A significant, enlightening, and useful book . . . very relevant for our times and our problems. . . . it explains ancient doctrines with depth and clarity . . . and it is a gift to meditators, who will find important elucidations to the meaning of Yoga practices." —Henryk Skolimowski, author of Eco-Philosophy

"This eminently readable book . . . is required reading for whoever aspires to participate in the adventure of global mind change . . ." —Frederick Franck, M.D., author of The Zen of Seeing
