I highly recommend this book. It is a highly relevant, well-written, enjoyable, scholarly, pithy exploration of the experiences, politics, taboos, cultural issues, traditional frameworks, science, market forces, and contemporary realities of the more challenging potential aspects of the spiritual journey.

It is a crucial counterbalance to the way meditation and spiritual practices are routinely advertised, discussed, portrayed, and taught, namely that they are all about a linear positive growth in happiness, love, and wisdom and couldn't possibly cause adverse effects and events.

Thanks, Aeon Books, for making this important book available! May it raise the level of the conversation.
