What does it mean to be spiritually awakened? What are the main aspects of spiritual awakening and how can we cultivate them?

Poet and spiritual psychologist Steve Taylor will discuss the main themes of his new bookThe Leap: The Psychology of Spiritual Awakening, just published as an Eckhart Tolle Edition.

Using some of his poetic meditations as a guide, he will illustrate different aspects of awakening, highlighting the importance of acceptance and dissolving our psychological attachments.
