How much of your waking time are you fully awake?
How often do you stumble through the day on auto-pilot, half asleep and out of contact with yourself, instead of feeling connected and alive?
In this astounding book, Steve Taylor suggests that our normal consciousness is really a kind of ‘sleep’ from which we sometimes ‘wake up’, into a more intense and complete reality. Waking from Sleep provides what is perhaps the first ever clear explanation of higher states of consciousness, or ‘awakening experiences’.
This book examines:
- the methods that human beings have used throughout history to induce awakening experiences, including meditation, sex, nature, sport, psychedelic drugs and sleep deprivation
- how higher states of consciousness were normal and natural to some of the world’s peoples (and still are in some cases)
- how we can make ‘wakefulness’ our normal state again
One of the best books on spiritual awakening I have ever come across. An important contribution to the shift in consciousness that is happening on our planet at this time.
The most enlightening book about enlightenment I have ever read.
Makes an elusive and complex subject easily comprehensible to the reader… His enthusiasm is tangible and infectious.
