The Supreme Awakening - Craig Person, Softcover

Experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and blissThe Supreme Awakening


Experiences of Enlightenment Throughout Time - and how you can cultivate them.


Craig Person, PhD

Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss — as different from our ordinary waking experience as waking is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rumi, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein — people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature.

The Supreme Awakening offers a rich collection of these experiences — and shows how ordinary men and women today are enjoying the same kinds of sublime experiences celebrated by the Buddha, Wordsworth, Thoreau, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and many others — simply by practicing the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation.

  • This expanded second edition provides additional material as well as an extended interview with an individual about his experiences of higher states of consciousness.
  • Drawing on the work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, The Supreme Awakening explains how these experiences arise and provides a systematic way of categorizing them.
  • Also it describes a practical method — the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation — that anyone can use to cultivate these remarkable experiences and enjoy the unparalleled benefits.
  • Finally, the book shows the immense practical benefits, for every area of life, of cultivating enlightenment.

No matter what your religion is—no matter what nationality—no matter what walk of life—if you are a human being, get this book—read it—get inspired by it—and act upon it—right away!”

A Supremely Interesting Book

Finally! A lucid, comprehensive, and interesting book on higher states of consciousness! Who knew that all of these people had glimpses of enlightenment? And such a wide range of individuals! Although I am not usually a big fan of scientific research, I found myself completely fascinated by the science behind these Transcendental experiences. The author does a great job of integrating research on the brain and consciousness, which is currently a fast-growing field of study. The research on Transcendental Meditation goes back over 40 years. So it's about time that somebody wrote a book that connects enlightenment to human physiology in an interesting way. This book is ultimately very inspiring because it shows how anybody can cultivate their brain and nervous system and thereby enjoy growth in higher states of consciousness, higher states of creativity, intelligence, and bliss.

Truly, a supreme book.

This book is amazing! So inspiring and profound. Craig Pearson, the author, takes examples from great men and women — people like Plato, Laozi, Rumi, Einstein, Emerson, Black Elk and more — and explores their extraordinary experiences of 'wakefulness, freedom, and bliss'. He explains that these sublime experiences are the true nature of life. Dr. Pearson shows how anyone can systematically access and stabilize these experiences through the simple, profound technique of Transcendental Meditation. This book is brilliant. Buy copies for all your friends and family! They will be very happy you did.
