    3. Adya strips away most of the extras from spirituality bringing it down to its core: What am I really? As someone who has had a rocky relationship with the big questions and religion, I found Adya's work ideal. I am very grateful to him for that.His style is both fun and tedious.

This was the first book that gave me the perspective I didn't think I was supposed to need anymore. Though it was at times repe [...]

    6. It was an interesting turn-about take on many of the concepts of meditiation. His humor is very refreshing!

    7. This is one I'll go back to many times. Adyashanti is an incredible teacher with amazing insight. I really like his take on meditation.
