Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0956643213, Paperback)

These lively talks and dialogs are about seeing through the illusion of separation and waking up to the boundless wholeness that is all there is. Joan's approach is open and explorative, questioning all attempts to conceptually grasp and frame the movement of life. She talks about seeing through the stories and beliefs that create our human suffering and waking up to the simplicity of what is. This book beautifully dissolves the apparent dichotomy between the uncompromising "this is it, just as it is" message of radical nonduality and the emphasis on "being here now" that is found in many meditation teachings. Joan has an affinity with Buddhism, Advaita and radical nonduality, but she belongs to no tradition. In these talks and dialogs, she takes on such perennial questions as, Is there a way out of personal and global suffering? Can we choose to stop addictive and destructive patterns? Does being awake take effort, vigilance and practice, or is it effortlessly and unavoidably always already the case? What happens when we die?
