This is an important book. Don’t be misled by the casually graceful repartee and lightness of touch. Without dogma, without heavy shoulds and should nots, Gary and Rich point towards something eternal, framed in our 21st century understanding of neuroscience, spirituality and … something that arises from, and returns to, the Stillness and the Silence. They offer practical investigation and guidance towards “the sweetest, fullest, most loving, caring, and manifesting experience that anyone could ever wish for.”
These chapter headings include: “Using dialogue for awakening,” “Can you 'do nothing' and awaken?”, “Why do we fear emptiness, silence and stillness?”, “Functioning without thoughts: sex, psychedelics and non-duality.”
