Overview

Could meditation be as simple as the instruction "no manipulation"? In the fourteen years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti realized that most decades-long meditators had become nicer people but not truly awake. Determined to discover for himself the full promise of meditation, Adya began a path of relentless self-inquiry, the result of which he describes as "true meditation: abiding in primordial consciousness." True Meditation invites the evergrowing number of seekers who have been touched by the wisdom of Adyashanti to join him for his first studio-recorded guided meditation teaching session, as he explores: -- How to disengage from "the meditator", the beginning of true meditation -- The art of no manipulation: how to stop "trying" to meditate, and instead simply allow things to be as they are -- Three progressive guided meditations to open our awareness to what Adyashanti calls "the natural state". "Meditation is overvalued when we obsess about perfect techniques and self-discipline," explains Adyashanti, "and undervalued if we think we don't need to bother with it." With True Mediation, now listeners join this sought after teacher to experience the original purpose of meditation, as a tool for realizing "who you really are -- the objectless freedom of being."
