Almaas is a teacher of inner work. This audio book is a series of interviews. I read some of his books before and found them to be very good. This interview was excellent. He explains in some detail the different aspects of what he teaches. This is not the kind of audio you would get much out of while performing another activity. It requires full attention, and it would not be interesting to anyone who is looking for some way of succeeding better in their external life. It's all about the inner world; external reality often seems to bring up the inner reactions that we work to dis-identify from. Eventually, it may be revealed to us that the distinctions if inner and outer life don't really exist. It's possible to see, if even just for a few moments, that everything that "exists" springs from non-existence. I listened to this interview over several days. After it ended I really seemed to have the sense of what the inquiry was about. It's not difficult in the sense of understanding what it is. But it is difficult in terms of developing the skill of it.
It may be important to note that while I appreciate the interviews, lectures, and writings of Almaas, I have not been impressed by his followers. (Though I have only met a handful of them.)
