Joan Tollifson makes no claim to “flashy, dramatic, awakening experiences,” yet she is uniquely one of the clearest and most grounded nonduality authors of our times.

In my case, awakening has been a much more gradual process of waking up and falling asleep and waking up again. And as I see it, there is no end to awakening. It is a never-ending and ever-fresh discovery that only happens Here / Now.To the full article and have complete access to the magazine, please purchase a subscription.
