Psychology (Nature of Mind)

"Waking From Sleep" by Steve Taylor

This is a page turner. You know when you read a book and it leaves such a deep impression you're still talking about it years later, and keep referring to again and again? Well this is one of those books for me. Steve Taylor is a skilful researcher into consciousness and in this book he pulls together some important examples of different states of consciousness.

What I especially love is how he makes clear distinctions between drug-induced states of higher consciousness and those attained through meditation and spiritual practice. He also makes highly valuable and clear distinctions between 'spiritual experiences' which can include anything from seeing angels to communing with God, and higher states of consciousness. Highly recommended.
