The Way of Rest gathers nearly 200 of Jeff Foster’s most inspiring essays, poems, and reflections on restoring and reviving ourselves when we feel exhausted or defeated. Drawing from his personal journey—including his own struggles with illness and depression—Jeff invites us to contemplate “the Way of Rest” and its potential to transform our experience of: • Imperfection—how we are “gloriously flawed” yet complete exactly as we are • Not knowing—how we come to trust in the greater intelligence of life • Melancholy and loneliness—how we learn to release the healing energies of “exquisite sensitivity” • Ordinary moments—recognizing and receiving “the closest thing of all” • Discomfort and discontent—how our frustrations become an opening to deep peace • Love—rediscovering who we are beyond our carefully constructed facades • Silence—discovering the vibrancy of living by letting go of thoughts and concepts “I hope the words in this book inspire, challenge, and encourage you. But most of all, I hope they help you remember that you are life, inseparable from the power that grows the flowers and gives birth to galaxies,” writes Jeff Foster. The Way of Rest brings you his companionship and support whenever you need it most.

Have you ever felt like you’re living out a script written for you by others—in your work, your relationships, or spirituality? “To break through the norms we’ve been conditioned to believe is an act of rebellion,” writes Chandresh Bhardwaj. “It is not about being stubborn or ‘bringing down the man.’ It’s about following your soul’s deepest longing. It’s about making a decision to question what you’ve been told is true.” There are no “right answers” in spirituality, but asking the right questions can help us discover who we are and what we are becoming. In Break the Norms, Chandresh illuminates the unconscious beliefs we carry about matters of sex, death, love, ego, God, and gurus—then offers penetrating questions and self-inquiry practices to help us separate our own truth from the products of the status quo. Here is the long-awaited fist book from a compelling new teacher—and a clarion call to embrace our own spiritual authority.

How can we bring an effortless yes to this moment? How do we stop running from “the mess of life”—our predicaments, our frustrations, even our search for liberation—and start flowing with all of it? In small venues throughout the UK and Europe, a young teacher named Jeff Foster is quietly awakening a new generation of spiritual inquirers to the experience of abiding presence and peace in our ever-shifting world. His informal gatherings, blogs, and kitchen-table video posts have created a rising tide of interest in his teachings. With The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff Foster invites us to discover the ocean of who we are: an awareness that has already allowed every wave of emotion and experience to arrive. While Jeff delightfully admits the irony of writing a book to convey something that is beyond words to teach, here he confirms his ability to guide us in unexpected new ways to a space of absolute acceptance and joy, no matter what’s happening in our lives. Candid, thoughtful, humorous—and deeply compassionate toward those searching for a way out of suffering—this refreshing new luminary inspires us to stop trying to “do” acceptance … and start falling in love with “what has already been allowed.” "Wise, spacious, and loving. Teachings that can free the heart." —Jack Kornfield, author of A Lamp in the Darkness and A Path With Heart "There is a transmission in this book: an alive, compassionate presence that invites awakening right here, this very moment, no matter what is going on in our lives." —Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge "A beautifully written guide to the fearlessness and simplicity of living fully immersed in each moment of our lives. The Deepest Acceptance rings with the power and authenticity of Jeff Foster's deeply felt, deeply lived wisdom. His affirmation of life and compassion for the full range of human experience is a much needed contribution." —Judith Blackstone, PhD, author of Belonging Here and The Intimate Life "Jeff Foster is an honest seeker who has unraveled the many trappings of seeking through his faithfulness to the humble ground of being here, now, and his book is a gentle and helpful companion on the journey." —Mark Nepo, author of Staying Awake and Seven Thousand Ways to Listen "The Deepest Acceptance is the story of a merciful awareness, which offers us the heart's inborn destination we were born to discover. Love is the highest form of acceptance. Judgment is the mechanics of non-acceptance.” —Stephen Levine, author of A Year to Live "The Deepest Acceptance is a multi-faceted spiritual gem. Every page transparently illuminates our real nature as naturally accepting, centerless awareness. Jeff has performed a great service in revealing awareness as the already-present source for living our lives in the most loving and meaningful way possible. I am immensely grateful to Jeff for bringing forth the essence of his teaching with such great power, love and sensitivity. A timeless classic through which numberless people will connect with the source of ultimate fulfillment." —Peter Fenner, PhD, author of Radiant Mind and The Edge of Certainty "Jeff has achieved something wonderful with this honest and insightful book - something that benefits all of us and sheds much-needed light on the mystery we call life." —Stephen Gawtry, Managing Editor, Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine "Throughout The Deepest Acceptance, Jeff Foster offers sentence after sentence that penetrate the mind and heart in a fresh, thrilling, life-changing way." —Raphael Cushnir, author of The One Thing Holding You Back and Surfing Your Inner Sea

We try to escape from the play of life and the suffering that being "a person in the world" entails. Our efforts to find spiritual enlightenment have the opposite effect and reinforce an underlying feeling of lack, of separation. In Life Without a Centre, Jeff Foster suggests that there is only ever the present appearance of life, with no individual at its core who could ever escape even if they wanted to. The entire spiritual search is nothing more than a game we play with ourselves, the cosmic entertainment. Jeff cuts through the confusion and frustration surrounding the search for escape through spiritual enlightenment, by pointing to the utterly obvious: This moment, and everything that arises in it, is already the liberation that is sought. Life, just as it is, is already what we've been searching for our entire lives. Jeff Foster graduated in astrophysics from Cambridge University. Soon after graduation, life events propelled him onto an intense two-year spiritual search, culminating in the realisation that there was never anything to find in the first place. He currently writes and talks on what some people have called "non-duality," but which he just refers to as "the utterly, utterly obvious."

Ordinary Freedom

This book is about Freedom. It’s not about a special state or condition called “Freedom,” some idea or concept to be believed in; rather, it is about the recognition and realization of our essential nature. When we arrive in this moment and awaken to the truth of our existence, we discover that Freedom is completely ordinary—ordinary, yet awesome. The recognition and realization of our essential nature is for many a gradual transition. The challenge of our generation is to find out how to support this transformation in the midst of our everyday lives. Adyashanti writes, “This wonderful collection of Jon’s teachings really captures his ability to point us back to our own innate freedom. What makes Jon’s teachings so powerful and relevant, though, is that no part of the human experience is denied. Indeed, there is an open encouragement for all of our human experience to be included and embraced as a means of discovering the infinite ground of being, within which all of our experience unfolds. This in itself is a great gift to any spiritual seeker looking to find out what freedom is really all about.” Reading Ordinary Freedom is like having a wise and loving but uncompromising friend on the path to discovering our true nature.

Born to be Free is a must-read for all who search for truth and inner direction. It reveals the true nature of total happiness, freedom and uninterrupted peace. On looking beyond the mind (thoughts, emotions and beliefs), the mystery of who and what you are is unraveled. Author Jac O' Keeffe led a busy healing practice after her sixth sense awakened. In her work, she found her clients' depression and emotional pain were caused by a quest for meaning and value: a spiritual yearning rather than external or physiological causes. Jac continued for seven years as a spiritual facilitator and teacher. Her personal quest led to that which is beyond mind - a transcendence of dualistic thought. Born to be Free skillfully leads the reader to the state of stillness, harmony and peace. That which is absolute and accessible to all - the truth - is clearly explained. The reader is invited to that which is beyond concepts and can be intuited by each of us to be the truth that underpins all. Jac O' Keeffe spends time in Ireland, Costa Rica and India. She facilitates satsang (spiritual gatherings), offering clear pointers to that which lies beyond the mind assisting spiritual seekers of truth.Publisher's Website: http: //www.strategicpublishinggroup.com/title/BornToBeFree.html Author's Website: www.jackieokeeffe.com
