One of MUM Press’s best-selling books, The Supreme Awakening has just been published in an expanded second edition.
The new edition includes descriptions of experiences of higher states of consciousness from more famous people through history — from Dag Hammarsköld (the great United Nations Secretary-General), Bernard Berenson (the famous American art historian), Antonio Machado (the noted Spanish poet), Morihei Ueshiba (the founder of the martial art known as aikido), Eckhart Tolle (the modern writer and teacher), and more.
It also includes an extended personal interview with a person who learned the Transcendental Meditation technique as a young man. Although he practiced it regularly for many years and enjoyed the practice and the benefits, he did not feel he was developing higher states of consciousness. Then one day, he suddenly began experiencing pure consciousness all the time, along with waking, dreaming, and sleeping — and his consciousness continued developing from there.
“This interview forms the perfect capstone to the book,” Dr. Pearson says. “The book shows famous people through history describing experiences of higher states that seem mostly temporary — and here is an example of an ordinary person who learns the TM technique and experiences systematic growth of consciousness to the highest levels. This story is amazing — it inspired me deeply.”
