Excerted from a review for: “A Heart Blown Open” by Keith Martin-Smith
The Life Story of JunPo, Denis Kelly Roshi:
I must start by explaining that I’ve known the central character in this story for 38 years. I found myself riveted by his presence the first night I met him at “Johnny’s” house when I was a mere twenty years old. He continues to guide and challenge me and all who know him these many years later.
This review by Tom Carroll is for: Kosmic Consciousness (Audio CD) by Ken Wilber originally posted on: Amazon.com
Wilber’s audio series Kosmic Consciousness is fascinating – though caution is advised as it is cerebral in the extreme. Wilber does the cognitive side – setting the stage for the work – all the practices – the contemplative work. Said another way – Ken has drawn a map of human experience, integrating everyday life and exotic spiritual potential. The value here is that Wilber’s Integral theory, (map), allows the user to see both the larger forest they’ve been “wondering” in, and the individual trees – including those that we may have already climbed, chopped down, admired from afar – even the one you may at this moment be camped beneath. Kosmic Consciousness will live in my iPod forever – or at least until iPods are replaced by something even cooler.
For anyone headed for the High Country – this 10 CD audio series is a must. It might even make you wish that long drive you have in front of you was one disk longer!
