I was "stuck" for a while in my practice of The Way and this book with its straight forward approach really helped. Taking Stephan's life lesson's as an ex-Western Monk really helped me face the running habitual tapes in my mind and helped me move to a place where I can effectively work toward transforming those mental habits. If you like Stephen Batchlors' approach to Awakening, you'll like this. This has a few more religious references with regards to religious plurality than I typically see on this subject and is written for the Western mind where many of us have prior judgmental religious views that are deeply ingrained and based on fear and ignorance. And, as I have been discovering for a LONG time now, that instilled fear and ignorance have been a major root source of my suffering and clinging emotional states. I think his style works to shake just about anyone's foundation so that they can move forward, if they are open to it and ready. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?
