Welcome to Tier 2 of Spirituality and Personal Growth. These resources are those with which I have personal experience, and highly recommend unto you.


Clairvision School of Meditation, International

Clairvision has been my main spiritual school since 2005. I sometimes describe it as a “Western, esoteric mystery school.” It can also accurately be described as a school of mystics. My experiences in Clairvision have turned my worldview on its head, and generally brought a whole new level of awakening to my life and times. Begin as I did with an Awakening the Third Eye weekend workshop, or the handy little CD set, Meditation: Portal to Inner Worlds. Move forward with a beautiful knowledge track (correspondence course), or better yet, an in-person meditation intensive.

Ammachi, the “Hugging Saint”

My very first full-on spiritual experience of this lifetime was in the presence of Amma. Words utterly fail to capture the profound beauty that Amma brings to Planet Earth. Our whole world is a much better place because of her bounteous care and unfathomable depth of Love. See also the devotional film, Darshan: The Embrace.

The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun, by Martín Prechtel

Martín Prechtel’s writings are some of the most profound. His utter mastery of mythology is brought to life in this book, The Disobedience of the Daughter of the Sun: A Mayan Tale of Ecstasy, Time, and Finding One’s True Form. I equally recommend his other books, but picked this one to highlight because of its delightful tale and bite-sized format. It is also as a perfect example of Prechtel’s extremely sophisticated grasp of an epic cosmology, and his supremely poetic ability to communicate life-illuminating beauty through mere words. I can’t help but think of Shakespeare when reading his books. Also very highly recommended, his talk on CD, Grief and Praise.

 I Am That, Sri  Nisargadatta Maharaj

I’ve read enough of this book to make it one of my top-all-time recommendations for people who want to break on through to awakening. Sri  Nisargadatta Maharaj pulls no punches; makes no excuses; speaks from the Absolute. But nothing I can say about the book will be of any use; you have to experience it for yourself.

I Am That


Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda

If you’ve lived in California for any length of time, you may very well have seen this book around, or even been to one of the organization’s centers. It was perhaps the first serious spiritual book I ever read, and provided a rich and deep foundation upon which to go forth and explore spiritual realities. You may also be interested in the well done 2014 film about Paramahansa Yogananda, Awake.

Autobiography of a Yogi

“As irrigators guide water to their fields, as archers aim arrows, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their lives.”

The Dhammapada, trans. Eaknath Easwaran (145)
