The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Michael A. Singer

Narrated By: Peter Berkrot

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: December 2011

Duration: 6 hours 11 minutes

Summary:

Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. In The Untethered Soul, spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.

The Untethered Soul offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, Singer examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show listeners how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help listeners experience the ideas that Singer presents.

    Life changing eye opener. Slight dips in volume in the narration, but well worth the listen; the lessons in this book apply to everyone everywhere and will work wonders for those that easily get caught up in the stresses of everyday life..

    Unfortunately, I simply could not listen to this book because the narrator was such a distraction that I could barely concentrate on the message. I loved listening to The Surrender Experiment which Singer narrated himself. The Untethered Soul would have been amazing to have heard the author instead. I have now bought the paperback version so I didn't have to listen to Peter Berkrot's sing-song version.
