Waking Up: Over 30 Perspectives on Spiritual Awakening—What Does It Really Mean?

What does it really mean to raise your consciousness? Does it happen in an instant, or is it more of a gradual process? Does awakening perfect all aspects of your personality? Are people beginning to wake up more now than ever before? Today these questions are of great importance to many, hearing a myriad of perspectives is enlightening.

Through a series of interviews with spiritual teachers, Waking Up examines some of the enigmas that seekers have been investigating for millennia.

A growing number of people are beginning to see things in a radically different way. In other words, more and more of us are starting to “wake up” spiritually—to discover an entirely new identity beyond the usual sense of who we think we are.

Waking Up is a fascinating glimpse into different awakening experiences! Mind opening to many more possibilities that reveal how our views, of which you may be unaware, could be limited and pre-determined by your associations with past traditions and associations.

But what is spiritual awakening, really?

How does it happen—and what are the consequences? Is it possible to attune to this dimension of experience at any moment?

In Waking Up, Sounds True publisher and founder Tami Simon speaks with 34 of today’s leading authors and teachers about their personal understanding of spiritual awakening—how it takes place, what changes (and what doesn’t), and how their experiences can inspire and inform our own realization.

Tami Simon does an outstanding job interviewing the speakers and brings much clarity to the topics spoken about, she synchronically has a way of asking the questions that the listener wants and needs to hear.
