About this title


This collection of dialogues and excerpts taken from Andrew Cohen's teachings, is a manual for personal liberation. It explores every question crucial to the spiritual quest in a deeply illuminating way. Love, renunciation, surrender, humility, detachment, the mind, spiritual practice and many other topics are addressed with a clarity so powerful that it constantly challenges the reader to go further and further. It is one of the most original expressions of awakened understanding by western teacher in our time - a book for endless study and contemplation.

From the Publisher:

Enlightenment Is a Secret consists of excerpts from teachings Andrew gave between the years 1986 and 1990, which have all been finally selected, arranged and edited by Andrew himself. In the hands of anyone open to be touched by the Unknown, Enlightenment Is a Secret brings us immediately to the very edge of our understanding, opening up a boundless vista before us. Since its publication in 1991, this flawless and unadorned transmission of the enlightened vision has awakened in thousands of seekers across the world an immediate recognition of an unthinkable possibility. Every page of this remarkable book reverberates with a transcendent emptiness. Every word echoes the sacred Mystery out of which it was conceived. Stripped away from the familiar reference points of spiritual tradition, time and practice, its utterly authentic and deeply penetrating expression of liberated understanding plunges the reader into a direct contemplation of the possibility of Liberation here and now, evoking in an open heart the whispering of a deep knowing beyond the mind. Absolutely mystical in nature, Enlightenment Is a Secret is simultaneously utterly pragmatic, illuminating with astonishing clarity a subject that for many has been shrouded in mystery and superstition. It is a complete guide through the perilous territory of the spiritual journey and it addresses with extraordinary insight and in a vast and impersonal context, all of the essential aspects of spiritual life. It is in fact a blueprint of Awakening, of Goal and Path, constantly meeting in very real terms the dichotomy between our potential for enlightenment and the complex and divided nature of our very human condition.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
