Beyond Mindfulness

The Direct Approach to Lasting Peace, Happiness, and Love

By Stephan Bodian

  • Paperback
  • £P.O.R.

"Stephan Bodian takes us beyond mere words, ideas, and mental fabrications into the very heart of the matter. I heartily recommend this excellent book." - Lama Surya Das, bestselling author of Awakening the Buddha Within and Awakening to the Sacred

Written by best-selling author, meditation expert, psychotherapist, and spiritual teacher Stephan Bodian, this book takes you beyond familiar mindfulness practices by offering guided meditations and direct pointers that invite you to realize your natural state of inherent wakefulness and peace. No regular practice is required, just the willingness to open yourself to a transformative new way of experiencing life.
Mindfulness has permeated our modern lives, and with good reason-it's been proven to boost mood, reduce stress, improve health, and maximize performance. But in our achievement-oriented culture, the practice of mindfulness can feel laborious and mechanical, like one more task on your endless to-do list. What if you could let go of effort and struggle and relax back into the happiness and ease that is your birthright-and is always readily available to you?
Beyond Mindfulness offers teachings and practices based on the direct approach to spiritual awakening that take you beyond the mechanics of being mindful and open you to the non-dual dimension of being, where the separation between self and other reveals itself to be a painful but seductive illusion. Once you realize this new way of seeing, you'll learn how to move beyond mindfulness into awakened awareness and discover that the love, compassion, wholeness, health, and happiness you've been seeking were there all along.

Let Evening Come

Mary C. Morrison
Authors:
Mary C. Morrison

It is never too soon to start thinking about old age. In Let Evening Come, Mary C. Morrison, herself eighty-seven at the time of first publication, considers the gains and losses of the ageing process in all their depth and richness. She writes about old age from her own personal experience, describing without sentimentality or despair how it actually feels to grow old, to be old, to look back over life, to look forward to death. In a series of meditative passages and journal entries she presents old age as a time that calls for gallantry and courage, but one that also offers unique opportunities for inner growth and wisdom.Let Evening Come is a remarkable book; simply but elegantly written, it is both moving and uplifting. It is not only for those standing on the edge of old age, it is for people of all ages, and once read will be recommended to others for the very special pleasures found within its pages.

Living in a Mindful Universe

Eben Alexander
Authors:
Eben Alexander

In 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander's brain was severely damaged by a devastating case of bacterial meningitis, and he lapsed into a weeklong coma. It was almost certainly a death sentence, but Dr. Alexander miraculously survived - and brought back with him an astounding story. During those seven days in coma, he was plunged into the deepest realms of consciousness, and came to understand profound truths about the universe we inhabit. What he learned changed everything he knew about the brain, mind, and consciousness and drove him to ask a question confounding the entire scientific community: How do you explain the origins of consciousness if it is not a byproduct of the brain? His challenge relates to a revolutionary shift now underway within our modern scientific understanding. Ultimately, direct experience is key to fully understanding how we are all connected through the binding force of unconditional love and its unlimited power to heal.In Living in a Mindful Universe, the New York Times bestselling author of Proof of Heaven and The Map of Heaven shares his insights into the true nature of consciousness. Embracing his radically new worldview, he began a committed program of personal exploration into non-local consciousness. Along the way, he met Karen Newell, who had spent most of her lifetime living the worldview he had only just discovered was possible. Her personal knowledge came from testing various techniques and theories as part of her daily routine. With Living in a Mindful Universe, they share techniques that can be used to tap into our greater mind, and explore how the power of the heart can enhance healing, relationships, creativity, guidance, and more. Using various modalities related to meditation and mindfulness described herein, you too can gain the power to access that infinite source of knowing so vital to us all.

Authentic

Stephen Joseph
Authors:
Stephen Joseph

The hunger for authenticity guides us throughout our lives. People strive for joined-up living, where on the one hand what they say and do reflects what they think and feel, and on the other what they think and feel reflects who they are.Stephen Joseph has pioneered developments in research into authenticity, drawing on the solid science of positive psychology to develop what has become one of the gold-standard tests for assessing authenticity. His and others' findings reveal that when people are in relationships in which they feel accepted, understood and valued, they drop their defences. They naturally begin to examine themselves psychologically, accommodate new information and live more authentically. What's more, the latest studies reveal that it is authenticity that leads to true happiness.In Authentic, Stephen Joseph presents his fresh and inspiring perspective on the psychology of authenticity alongside practical advice and exercises for the reader. Drawing on the wisdom of existential philosophers, the insights and research of psychologists, and case studies from his own and others' clinical experiences, he shows how authenticity is the foundation of human flourishing - as well as how the ideas relate to debates about the importance of happiness.

Painting the Sidewalk with Water

Joan Tollifson
Authors:
Joan Tollifson

These lively talks and dialogues are about seeing through the illusion of separation and waking up to the boundless wholeness that is all there is. Joan's approach is open and explorative, questioning all attempts to conceptually grasp and frame the movement of life. She talks about seeing through the stories and beliefs that create our human suffering and waking up to the simplicity of what is. This book beautifully dissolves the apparent dichotomy between the uncompromising "this is it, just as it is" message of radical non-duality and the emphasis on "being here now" that is found in many meditation teachings. Joan has an affinity with Buddhism, Advaita, and radical non-duality, but she belongs to no tradition. In these talks and dialogues, she takes on such perennial questions as, Is there a way out of personal and global suffering? Can we choose to stop addictive and destructive patterns? Does being awake take effort, vigilance, and practice, or is it effortlessly and unavoidably always already the case? What happens when we die?

The Best Thing That Never Happened

Joey Lott
Authors:
Joey Lott

"Just a few years ago I spent my days lying on a moldy mattress praying for death or an end to suffering, whichever came first." Joey Lott suffered for decades from extreme anxiety, obsessions, compulsions, eating disorders... and spiritual seeking. And then, nearing the brink of death he stumbled upon something miraculous: the freedom he had long sought was to be found in the very experiences he had tried so desperately to avoid. This is a profound book-but with a lightness of touch that makes it reader-friendly. Part memoir, part take-no-prisoners immediacy, The Best Thing that Never Happened offers a unique and refreshing message-that you cannot be other than yourself. With the repeated instructions to meet what is already present, including what you most want to avoid, the author points you to the radical discovery of true freedom which is available for each of us in this very moment.
