The Mind Illuminated is a comprehensive, accessible and - above all - effective book on meditation, providing a nuts-and-bolts stage-based system that helps all levels of meditators establish and deepen their practice. Providing step-by-step guidance for every stage of the meditation path, this uniquely comprehensive guide for a Western audience combines the wisdom from the teachings of the Buddha with the latest research in cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Clear and friendly, this in-depth practice manual builds on the nine-stage model of meditation originally articulated by the ancient Indian sage Asanga, crystallizing the entire meditative journey into 10 clearly-defined stages. The book also introduces a new and fascinating model of how the mind works, and uses illustrations and charts to help the reader work through each stage. This manual is an essential read for the beginner to the seasoned veteran of meditation.

This collection of twenty essays, based on deeply-felt, personal experiences of reading the Lessons and the Text of A Course In Miracles, demonstrates the transformation from the limited, conceptual, egoic self-identity to the limitless Self created by God, seeing with the vision of Christ. This transformation is simply a shift from one state of mind to another, from the self-identity state to the state of mind of the Self. The gap is bridged by the Holy Spirit when you ask for help, realizing you can’t, He can and He will and He does. Throughout the book, this transformation is expressed in reference to poetry, paintings, passages from the New Testament, movies, essays on psychology, the classic comedians, relationships with family and friends, Lindbergh’s historic flight, and so forth. In addition, a sonnet by Jesus graces the page between each chapter. Several of these essays started out as blogposts.
