By: Taylor, Steve.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: California New World Library 2017Description: xii, 305 p. Includes bibliographical references and index.ISBN: 9781608684472.Subject(s): Psychology - Religious | Religious Awakening | Spirituality - PsychologyDDC classification: 204.2 Summary: What does it mean to be enlightened or spiritually awakened? In The Leap, Steve Taylor shows that this state is much more common than is generally believed. He shows that ordinary people - from all walks of life - can and do regularly “wake up” to a more intense reality, even if they know nothing about spiritual practices and paths. Wakefulness is a more expansive and harmonious state of being that can be cultivated or that can arise accidentally. It may also be a process we are undergoing collectively. Drawing on his years of research as a psychologist and on his own experiences, Taylor provides what is perhaps the clearest psychological study of the state of wakefulness ever published. Above all, he reminds us that it is our most natural state - accessible to us all, anytime, anyplace. https://www.newworldlibrary.com/Books/ProductDetails/tabid/64/SKU/84472/Default.aspx#.Xt4C3EUzaUk
