Eli has added an additional Preface and three new chapters entitled “Ten Years after Meeting Papaji,” “Cancer” and “Songs of Freedom.” The last chapter contains poetry composed while undergoing chemotherapy in Little Rock.
“Eli’s beautiful book evokes the timeless truth freshly and without dogma. The result is a thrilling response from what is deepest and most authentic in the reader.” — Gangaji
“Using insights from psychology, astronomy, physics, and biology, Sudden Awakening is a contemporary rendering of ancient truths — and it also offers some new ones of its own. But more importantly, it gives the reader an experience of its title.” — Catherine Ingram, author of Passionate Presence.
Self-realization, true freedom, is available to all who seek it; this is Eli Jaxon-Bear’s message. Based on his own wide-ranging spiritual journey. Sudden Awakening is a practical guide that answers essential questions and assists spiritual seekers in awakening to what is already present. Each clearly written chapter reads as a meditation, offering a jumping off point to self-inquiry for those ready to take the final step toward full self-realization.
