Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Sam Harris

Narrated By: Sam Harris

Date: September 2014

Duration: 5 hours 54 minutes

Summary:

For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s latest New York Times bestseller is a guide to meditation as a rational practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.

From Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books, Waking Up is for the twenty percent of Americans who follow no religion but who suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history. Throughout this book, Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives.

Waking Up is part memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.

Genres:

  • William H.

    Wonderful!

  • Thomas Denney

    tl;dr Excellent. Get it Meditation had been something that had long been on my mind and I had even been practicing at home for about 6 months. This book really pushed me forward. Sam Harris lays everything out in a very concise manner and provides well thought out and simple relatable examples to further his already logically demonstrated points. This book inspired me to go further and check into a non-religious vipassna retreat. Some of the information is very technical but he always breaks it down well. The humor is implemented well to keep the pace from becoming tedious.
