Publisher's Summary

What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached. Ultimately, he realized that only when you let go of all techniques, even the concept of yourself as a meditator, will you open to the art of true meditation: dwelling in the natural state. True Meditation invites you to join the growing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to learn:

How to make the "effortless effort" that will vivify the present moment
Meditative self-inquiry and "The Way of Subtraction": how to ask a spiritually powerful question, and determine the real answer
Three guided meditations intended to reveal what Adyashanti calls "your home as awareness itself""We've been taught that awakening is difficult," explains Adyashanti, "that to wake up from the illusion of separation takes years. But all it really takes is a willingness to look into the depths of your experience here and now." True Meditation gives you the opportunity to reclaim the original purpose of meditation, as a gateway to "the objectless freedom of being".

Very Nice, Different and Refreshing

In reading other reader comments I almost didn't buy this, so now I am writing a review to aid those who might make the mistake of not getting this. Other sites reviewers rated this very highly, but another reviewer here said it was not as described and no mediation techiniques were offered. I disagree.

I think that reader may have been looking for a more guided form of meditation technique. This author teaches you to let go of trying to control your meditative practice and experience it on a more organic level. It is very effective if you are looking to examine deep meditation with an emphasis on spirtual awakening rather than guided meditation for relaxation or to achieve other goals. Very very nice, relaxing and easy to understand.
