Live From Prairie Lights: Craig Pearson

Craig Pearson will talk about his book, The Supreme Awakening: Experiences of Enlightenment Throughout Time.  

Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss—as different from our ordinary waking experience as waking is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rūmī, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein—people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature. The Supreme Awakening shows that the sublime experiences reported by great people across time are real, universal, and understandable in terms of modern science. Craig Pearson is executive vice-president of Maharishi University of Management, in Fairfield, Iowa.

"No matter what your religion is—no matter what nationality—no matter what walk of life—if you are a human being, get this book—read it—get inspired by it—and act upon it—right away!" —David Lynch
