Western culture is fascinated by quick fixes, glamorous fads, and celebrity teachers—and spiritual practice is no exception. “What we see in America today in both the yoga and mindfulness booms,” writes Dr. Miles Neale, “is a presentation of technique alone, sanitized and purged of the dynamic teachings in wisdom and ethics that are essential for true liberation.” For anyone seeking a path dedicated to both authentic personal growth and the overthrow of materialism, hedonism, and nihilism that are threatening our planet, this compelling teacher presents a well-conceived, sustainable solution with Gradual Awakening.
The core of this book is Tibetan Buddhism’s “Gradual Path”—or Lam Rim—interpreted with fresh insights from modern scientific research. Through each step, Dr. Neale offers astute guidance on areas where Western audiences get stuck—particularly on the developmental realizations of self-care, altruism, and “quantum vision.” Here is a landmark book that replaces shallow spirituality with a new paradigm that integrates science with spirit, theory with practice, and personal meditation with the desire to transform the world.
