At the age of sixteen, Stephen Jourdain experienced a radical awakening while contemplating (in the manner of a Zen koan) the famous Descartes statement "I think, therefore I am." As a result of this fundamental change in perception--and at that very moment--the essential basis of Jourdain's identity collapsed once and for all, as he realized the truth of what all of us essentially are: the fundamental "I" principle, or Consciousness.Radical Awakening is a collection of extraordinary dialogues between Jourdain and the well-known writer, Gilles Farcet. These spirited talks--provocative and highly original--offer the reader an exceptional vantage point into the nature of authentic spiritual awakening and its embodiment. Jourdain lives the gift of awakening in the most ordinary manner, clearly articulating both the reality and the myth of enlightenment through deep understanding and piercing discernment.
