This book contains an intimate firsthand account of a profound journey of awakening. During the summer of 2001, Jeff Carreira went on a silent meditation retreat for 60 days. During that time, he was swept up in a succession of spiritual openings and energetic breakthroughs that have inspired all of the teaching and writing he has done ever since. Each day of the retreat is represented here with an excerpt taken from the actual diary he kept on retreat. The writing is lucid and immediate, providing a unique glimpse of an inner unfolding that led to the disillusion of the sense of separation and the discovery of perfect peace and wholeness. This second edition printing has been exquisitely designed and illustrated with images that include pages taken directly from the original notebook Jeff kept during the retreat.
