Reviews

"From one of our culture's wisest scholars comes a book that is as clear and compelling as anything recently written about spiritual understanding. Reading Lucid Waking is a spiritual experience." * Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Prayer Is Good Medicine and Healing Words *
"Feuerstein's approach is intellectually and philosophically precise, suggesting that the modern world needs genuine philosophical inquiry--not as an intellectual pastime, but as a way to understand clearly who we are and how our lives are intimately connected with those of our fellow beings and our world." * Bodhi Tree *
"Impressive in the range of scholarship displayed this is a stimulating and thought-provoking work. Georg Feuerstein never lets the reader off the hook of lucid waking and directs our attention to the proper use of mindfulness in order to achieve understanding and awareness. This is an inspiring book. Balanced, clear-thinking and compassionate, it holds out hope for humanity at a time of apparently endless confusion, fuzzy feeling and intellectual fragmentation; a time when, for many, it would be easier to despair." * Caroline Phillips, New Humanity *
"The author of this volume of thoughtful essays is arguably the most articulate and knowledgeable Western writer on the spiritual traditions of India; but here he addresses a question of truly universal relevance: How can we awaken ourselves from automatized and conditioned patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving to which we have grown accustomed? How can we--individually and as a society--really wake up? Feuerstein speaks clearly and simply from his own experience and observation, summoning helpful references when needed but never hiding behind them." * Intuition *
"Lucid Waking is an odyssey through philosophical thought and how it connects to mindfulness in everyday life. . . . devoted spiritual seekers will find the work very valuable not only for the content, but also for the questions raised in each section." * Tami Brady, TCM Reviews, May 2010 *
