For those who are seeking a path of simplicity, not bound by the trappings of spiritual practice, Adyashanti brings a fresh and humble approach to Zen wisdom.

This guy is amazing. I have both of his speeches that are available here, and recommend them both VERY VERY VERY highly. His views on being awake are actually liberating (no joke). He teaches that being AWAKE is really not hard, and that in his opinion there are a lot more AWAKE people than you realize ... MAYBE EVEN YOU.
You can hear his authentic-ness in his voice. Very easy too listen too. He leads you through a couple guided meditations. This is basically the teaching he gave at a retreat. I would love to meet this guy!!!

Satsang w/ Adyashanti

This is the best fromat I have listened to of the teachings of this emerging teacher of enlightenment. There are only the teachings, dialogues have been omitted. Recommended for would-be students and veterans alike.

Great read

I found this book really interesting and very well presented. I really liked the way that just when the subject matter was getting a little dry, some hummer would put in to lighten the mood - great book which I will listen to again.

Beautiful 💗

Absolute gem of enlightenment, communicated without pretentiousness. The beauty of his enlightened lectures with such ordinary, humble and beautiful guidance is unlike any other I have heard.

Adyashanti has the gift of conveying deep spiritual truths in a simple, clear, concise and humble way. He provides practical advice on how to realise one-ness and describes many of the pitfalls common to spiritual seekers. There are lots of helpful analogies which make for an engaging and very rewarding dharma talk. This has been one of the most helpful talks I've come across in my understanding and development. Thank you Adyashanti!
