The new inspiring book titled The Supreme Awakening: Experiences of Enlightenment Throughout Time—And How You Can Cultivate Them is available now.

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.

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.

Award-winning filmmaker David Lynch says, "No matter what your religion is—no matter what nationality—no matter waht walk of life—if you are a human being, get this book—read it—get inspired by it—and act upon it—right away!"

Psychiatrist and author, Norman E Rosenthal, MD, says that this book "highlights the importance of higher states of consciousness not just for great writers and thinkers but for all of us."
