Gina Lake is the author of over twenty books about awakening to one’s true nature, including From Stress to Stillness, All Grace, In the World But Not of It, The Jesus Trilogy, A Heroic Life, Trusting Life, Embracing the Now, Radical Happiness, and Choosing Love. She is also a gifted intuitive with a master's degree in counseling psychology and over twenty-five years’ experience supporting people in their spiritual growth. Gina's website offers information about her books and online courses, free ebooks, book excerpts, a monthly newsletter, a blog, and audio and video recordings: http://www.RadicalHappiness.com
The focus of Gina's writing and teaching is on helping people be in the present moment and live the happy and fulfilled life that is possible and on shedding light on the ego and other programming that interferes with that. Gina's teachings are most similar to Eckhart Tolle's, Byron Katie's, Adyashanti's, and A Course in Miracles. Her most recent books were received from Jesus in the same way that Helen Shucman received A Course in Miracles, through a process called conscious channeling.
Each volume of The Book of Listening is arranged around a theme, for example, Love and Marriage, The Guru and Disciple, and includes a previously unpublished private discussion or a transcription of a public talk with Jean Klein. Listening also includes one question answered in depth (Your Question) and a brief description of Jean's unique approach to the role of the body in his teaching. For each volume Jean selected an extract from his own favorite literature and poetry, covering many ages and cultures, which complemented the depth and richness of his own expression.
Most of Jean Klein's teaching was simply through his presence and through the question and answer dialogues where he “answered the questioner, not the question.” Jean emphasized the direct approach to liberation, an approach free from emphasis on the attainment of progressively subtle psycho-somatic states.
The Book of Listening reproduces each original volume in full and, as well as offering an exposition of the direct path, captures the multi-cultural interests and tastes of this remarkable and pioneering exponent of Advaita in the West.
