Phenomena fit in the architecture of enlightenment How do you know if your meditation practice is workingOn The Science of Enlightenment Shinzen Young elucidates these uestions with precision and intelligence demonstrating why he is regarded as one of the Western world's most articulate and understandable teachers of classical mystical experienceThe search for awakening is not limited to a chosen few It is a field open for you to investigate once you possess the inner technologies to do so Now you can begin that investigation with The Science of Enlightenment Includes six complete guided meditation sessionsLearn More AboutSix common traps on the path to awakening and how to avoid them• Ancient mystical teachings in clear modern language• Fascinating research about meditation and your brain wave states perceptual acuity oxygen levels and aging• How meditation enhances your learning athletic performance relationships and emotional life• Why your body is the greatest mystical teacher• How to digest harmful mental blockages through inner work Gah Shinzen s teachings and practices at their best are parsimonious sober useful and legitimately transformative I have been using Shinzen s basic conceptual framework and meditation techniues for years and they have profoundly transformed my experience of the world I owe Shinzen an enormous debt of gratitude His work has enhanced my life to an inestimable degree And his work is the foundation for my work as a therapist I d literally be lost without it But there is something a little grandiose and fuzzy about parts of this book Around two thirds in the material becomes less clear less germane less crucial and than a little frustratingI m concerned that the dirty notes will alienate a serious critical reader And that s precisely the type of reader the book is I think intended to reach I love the man and I love his work and I love the editor of this book like a brother in fact he s my bestie IRL So it pains me to give it 4 Stars But I feel the need to honestly raise these albeit vague objections If for no other reason than as a warning to a would be reader not to let some of the kookier sections in this text turn you off of ShinzenIn the final chapters Shinzen discusses his vision for the friendly synergistic merger of the western enlightenment project and eastern enlightenment paths ie the utilization of science and technology for assistance in the profound realization of post personal states and traits This is where Shinzen s work shines again This aspect of his work may become irrelevant soon or it may read like H G Wells in 50 100 years But I think it s important and progressive right now And I believe it will have a lasting impactSpeaking as a clinician I desperately want no need precise effective techniues clinically useful vocabulary tractable conceptual frameworks and assistive technology for helping people find the pathway out of the darkened woods of suffering better known as the human condition AKA addiction depression anxiety trauma and what we currently refer to as personality disorders but what we may someday be refer to as simply the disorder of being a personality Shinzen s work is already completely useful in this regard In fact it s the most useful one of these ever devised It s a hugely important dharma firmware update If you re a western meditation practitioner you need this patchBut getting non Buddhist people the vast majority of people at present to understand value and use these techniues is still a hard translation problem to say the least Try explaining and demonstrating the value of abiding in metta anicca and anatta to a heroin addict in hard withdrawal or a trauma victim having a panic attack or a suicidal depressive They need it bad and I do it all the time but it ain t easy brah take my word for it If Shinzen has his way the eastern enlightenment path will become a whole lot direct and that just might help in the project of steering the western enlightenment bus off of the path to total annihilation If that ain t upaya than I don t know what isWhat s the sound of one mic dropping
