Publisher Comments:

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. The Untethered Soul, 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.

About the Author

Michael A. Singer is the author of the highly successful The Untethered Soul, which has been featured on Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday television and many radio shows. The Untethered Soul has also been published in Turkey, Brazil, Switzerland, Spain, Japan, China, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Poland, and Italy.

Singer received a master's degree in economics from the University of Florida in 1971. During his doctoral work, he had a deep inner awakening and went into seclusion to focus on yoga and meditation. In 1975, he founded Temple of the Universe, a now long-established yoga and meditation center where people of any religion or set of beliefs can come together to experience inner peace. Through the years, Singer has made major contributions in the areas of business, the arts, education, healthcare, and environmental protection.

Full disclosure: I chose The Untethered Soul because of the cover. I looked at it and said to myself, "Self, a horse running wild and free on a beach? That is so damn cheesy, they might just be on to something."

And, oh, they were.

I could count the number of "self-help"/"personal growth" books I've read in my life on one hand, but I've always side-eyed them with interest. As I am in a MAJOR turning point in my life right now where I can't tell if it's all a shambles or it's just being re-built, I was looking for some guidance.

There was nothing in The Untethered Soul that I haven't heard before, nothing that I hadn't already thought of myself. But it's the way that Singer says things, and repeats them (he repeats himself a lot, which I've read criticism about, but I think it's being used as a gentle way to drive really important points home) that really made all these things make sense to me. I am still not quite sure if I totally believe that my whole sense of being and my whole life is completely in my own control - I love science, so I understand chaos - but I am teaching myself to control some of it.

I am not the kind of person that would all of a sudden turn my back on everything in my past and live by the rules of one author, and one book alone. However, reading this book has been a really important experience for me and has given me some basic tools to take control of the ways that my life changes in the next few months/years, instead of feeling totally out of it.
