Experience Adyashanti’s Core Teachings

Over the last 25 years, two central themes have been prevalent in all the various programs, broadcasts, books, and recordings Adyashanti has offered. Adya considers these to be fundamental pillars of his teachings and guidance on liberation and awakened living. 

The first theme of his teaching is awakening from separate ego identity to the greater Self.

The second theme is the embodied expression of love, fully allowing everything to be as it is.

We have selected for you key audio downloads from his library of teachings that focus on these two subjects and are offering them at a 25% discount through December 31.

Falling into Grace

Falling into Grace

Softcover Book, $13.00 $10.00 

This book gets to the core of why we suffer. It is Adyashanti’s invitation “to be taken by a moment of grace and fall into a sense of life when it is not separate from you, when life is actually an expression of something indefinable, mysterious, and immense.”
