The Jewel of Awakening: Teachings and Meditations to Free Your Heart and Mind

Is true spiritual awakening possible for each one of us? Explore this question with The Jewel of Awakening, a collection of inspired contemplations and reflections from five leading Sounds True authors as they investigate the potential that is always available in this very moment.

Tracks include:

1. "The True Nature of Awareness" by Eckhart Tolle from The Realization of Being

Eckhart Tolle helps us to discern between the stream of habitual thought and the nature of awareness itself

2. "Discovering the Unchartered Territory" by Gangaji from Spiritual Awakening in Daily Life

Gangaji guides us into the unexplored terrain of our own being and into the realization of the nature of identity

3. "Natural Meditation" by Lama Surya Das from Natural Radiance

An introduction to a nondual practice from the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet presented by Lama Surya Das

4. "The Experience of Unconditioned Awareness" by Peter Fenner from Radiant Mind

Peter Fenner discusses the nature of unconditioned awareness and how we can come to rest in it through an exercise he calls "just sitting"

5. "Allowing Everything to Be as It Is" by Adyashanti from True Meditation

Adyashanti leads us in the practice of what he calls "true meditation" or opening fully to whatever arises in our experience




I'm not a doctor.  My comments are not medical advise. These are my opinions based on my own experience and what I've learned. Please discuss your situation with a medical practitioner who has knowledge of tapering and withdrawal...if you are lucky enough to find one.

Full Drug and Withdrawal History

Brief Summary

Several SSRIs for 13 years starting 1997 (for mild to moderate partly situational anxiety) Xanax PRN ~ Various other drugs over the years for side effects

2 month 'taper' off Lexapro 2010

Short acute withdrawal, followed by 2 -3 months of improvement then delayed protracted withdrawal

DX ADHD followed by several years of stimulants and other drugs trying to manage increasing symptoms

Failed reinstatement of Lexapro and trial of Prozac (became suicidal)

May 2013 Found SA, learned about withdrawal, stopped taking drugs...healing begins.

Protracted withdrawal, with a very sensitized nervous system, slowly recovering as time passes

Supplements which have helped: Vitamin C, Magnesium, Taurine

Bad reactions: Many supplements but mostly fish oil and Vitamin D

June 2016 - Started daily juicing, mostly vegetables and lots of greens.

Aug 2016 - Oct 2016 Best window ever, felt almost completely recovered

Oct 2016 -Symptoms returned - bad days and less bad days.

April 2018 - No windows, but significant improvement, it feels like permanent full recovery is close.
