Awakening is a living transmission of silence and freedom, writes Eli Jaxon-Bear, granting final liberation to everyone. A teacher in the self-realization movements of Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Poonjaji, and Gangaji, Jaxon-Bear presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for self-inquiry and a final realization of freedom. Sudden Awakening puts spiritual awakening in a larger context: that it is humankind's next evolutionary leap. Based on ancient Indian teachings and years of contemplation, this book offers the key to the possibility of ending world destruction. The book is written in clear, beautiful prose, and readers can peruse each chapter as a meditation, or as a gateway into awakening the highest self-attainable. It offers insight into the nature of the true spiritual quest and shows the traps as well as the signs of confirmation along the journey.

Sudden Awakening by Eli Jaxon-Bear is the real thing. It is not only a description of the moment of true spiritual awakening but is also an aid in the invariable obstacles barring that moment. This is not only a spot on study of the process leading to realization, it is a ringing manifesto of liberation. It is highly personal but also universal. I found it almost impossible to put down. I call it the real thing because there isn't even a moment of dogma or bias. Sudden Awakening went straight to my heart. Dr. Murry Korngold, Founder of Los Angeles Society of Clinical Psychologists, having studied with an associate of Karl Jung and shared a practice with R.D. Laing in Kingsley Hall, UK starting in 1964 --Review on Book Sleeve
Eli's beautiful book evokes the timeless truth freshly and profoundly, calling a thrilling response from what is deepest and most authentic in the reader. Gangaji --Review on Book Sleeve
This is a book for awakening . . . for all of us to meet our true self. The first part of the book is like the finger pointing to the moon. The second is the light of the moon itself. Nancy Baker, dharma successor of Roshi Bernie Glasssman and professor of philosophy at Sarah Lawrence College. The lightning bolt of love dances heart to heart from an ancient sage to western vessel as Eli sings the timeless message to awaken the ones who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
