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

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
