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--now a New York Times bestseller--spiritual teacher Michael 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.

This book, copublished with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he 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 readers 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 readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to! I just re-read this book for the second time, and even then it offered profound insight. This is one of the best books I read on explaining the workings of our mind in everyday language that is easy to understand. Helped me understand why I struggle with my thoughts and emotions, as well as illuminating a way to clarity and peace. It goes much deeper to examine our connection to the universe if you are ready for that. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book, changed my thinking! My friend recommended this book, from page one I was hooked. Really changed the way I put things in perspective. The little voice in my head is talking less and less and the annoying things people do are starting not to bug me. Everyday I become more at peace. If you have anxiety, depression, loneliness and you ACTUALLY want to change buy this book and do yourself a favour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer!!! This book changed everything for me. While wordy and thick throughout the words resonated with me in every way. I found myself nodding as I read with agreement and even laughing at how well it seemed to describe me. I've heard the saying "if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change". That was always easier said than done until I read this book. Worth every word.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing This book was one of the most influential tools I've used to overcome chronic anxiety. So much of anxiety is fear of the future, and this book taught me to let go of my attachments and live in the present moment. I've recommended this book many times to friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Changed me for the better I recently got out of a relationship because I had too many negative feelings, like jealousy and anxiety. I bought this book soon after. I believe this book has changed a lot about me. Since reading the first chapter, I instantly felt more free. I literally feel my heart changing, and I'm so much more happier and willing to experience life moment to moment. The only thing I was not expecting is the last chapter. It speaks about God. I'm not a religious person, and up until that point I did not see this book going in that direction. I don't mind, it's still nice to see the relation to religion. This book saved me.
