A spiritual handbook for an evolutionary transformation that redefines the purpose of spiritual life for the modern Western seeker.
The purpose of enlightenment is for us to become so conscious that, through our wholehearted participation, we actually begin to actively guide the evolutionary process itself.
"Living Enlightenment demonstrates a creative spiritual intelligence that breaks new ground in applying the spiritual wisdom of the East to the contemporary world." - Rabbi Michael Terner
"Andrew Cohen's new book, Living Enlightenment, is a very clear exposition and exploration of spiritual realization or enlightenment, the purpose of all spiritual pursuits. This book should inspire and encourage sincere aspirants on their journey toward this goal." - Sri Swami Satchidananda
"I have read many spiritual books, yet I don't know of any other that has affected me the way this one has. Andrew Cohen communicates with simplicity and precision, yet also with suprising depth and subtlety. I found myself disturbed and intrigued reading this - as many (most!)of my ideas about enlightenment were deeply shaken, replaced by a growing seriousness and demand to live a different and extraordinary human life. The fact that this was the result of reading this book should not have suprised me after reading the foreword by Ken Wilber, in which he warns us that Andrew Cohen is a serious teacher, but what did suprise me is how it seemed to happened. Just reading it, did it. By the time I realized I was intrigued, it was already too late - this book is that experiental. It has actually changed the way I view and think about life,and I find myself deeply grateful. I look forward to reading more from this man." - Online Review by Wendy from New York
