ABOUT GRADUAL AWAKENING

 

Gradual Awakening offers a well-traversed roadmap and practical training manual of 30 contemplative insights and meditative practices drawn from the Tibetan Buddhist Gradual Path (Lam Rim) tradition. Presented through the lens of modern neuropsychology, accessible to the Western mindset and relevant to our geo-political and environmental crisis, the book proposes an alternative to spontaneous enlightenment, quick fixes and New Age pseudo spirituality for seekers ready to level-up and make a life-long commitment to practice.
