A noted scholar of Eastern philosophy explains how to make the experience of heightened awareness a part of everyday life, and how this can transform the planet.
Lucid waking means bringing an intense awareness to the business of living by meeting the challenges of existence sanely, creatively, and philosophically. It is the goal of all the great spiritual traditions of the world. Georg Feuerstein shows how this awareness is quietly emerging in individuals in the West after a prolonged spiritual slumber. Lucid Waking shows us that it is possible to be so vividly engaged in life that it will seem as though others are sleepwalking by comparison. Feuerstein brings clarity to the often murky concepts of soul, spirit, imagination, wholeness, and enlightenment, providing a sensible accounting of higher consciousness and self-transcendence in modern life as we approach the millennium. Rich with philosophy and insight from one of our most gifted chroniclers of the inner experience, Lucid Waking is a statement of unshakable faith in the great potential of humanity.
