Summary

In this courageous, leading-edge book, Jeff Brown takes us on the spiritual ride of a lifetime. In Part One, we join him on an engaging, often hilarious, and compelling personal journey through decades of tasting from a banquet of spiritual approaches. Through his direct experience, fierce exploration, and scintillating discernment, Brown exposes the fragmented, ungrounded, and dissociative notions of spirituality that have imprisoned our consciousness and obstructed our awakening since time immemorial. In his cuttingly straight style, he reveals that much of what we have been calling "spirituality" is actually a patriarchal, emotionally bereft construct that perpetuates our self-avoidance. He then proves to us - point by brilliant point - that true spirituality is a whole-being awakening that wonderfully embraces our entire human experience. 

In Part Two of Grounded Spirituality, Brown engages in a riveting dialogue with an ungrounded seeker named "Michael." Their dialogues unfurl in warmth, humor, playfulness, and personal story, threaded with challenging confrontation and cutting truth. Hands-on exercises are dispersed throughout, providing listeners with a direct experience of a new, inclusive model. Here the author lays down the tracks for a more balanced, heartfelt, and relational spirituality - one that leaves us "enrealed", integrated, and purposeful.

Illumination.

As Jeff says, when the student is ready the student will come, I arrived at the most appropriate juncture in my life to listen to this book. He writes with heartfelt truth which I felt reflected my own journey so far. The reading is clear, lucid and convincing.He has led me from confusion about what next to a glimmer of the path I need to tread along my own purpose. Thank you Jeff Brown

Great book

Only complaint is the author is reading both sides of a conversation and at times it’s hard to keep track of which character is speaking

Life changing stuff

Extremely well written and engaging, and so on point. I found this so validating as to why I've walked away from my intense journey into nondualism and toward earth spirituality and personal healing and empowerment. It also opened up deep seated feelings about my past with nondualism that needed to be brought up to feel and heal. I highly recommend this for everyone, but especially those like me who have fallen off the nondualism wagon because they just can't keep abandoning themselves any longer and are ready to finally LIVE. I'm very grateful to have read this. It was an important part of my own journey.

Resonance

Seeing myself as an ‘ease finder’ I’m intentionally choosing and embracing, tho often with agonizing and at times debilitating resistance within all my bodies, a path within I admit is most confronting to my core.. the growth I’m experiencing as my personal life design revealing is for me equally unavoidable. Listening to your recording of Grounded Spirituality is of course timely, no coincidence 😊, and received in gratefulness in my expanding awareness into my heart. It’s as if we’ve already met, blessings and thank you 🙏🏽💫

Validation and Verification! Listen Now!!

This book brought me to my knees in thanksgiving with the validation of my own awarenesses of my lifelong experiences of intense "spiritual" bypassing while being abused in every way possible. After listening non-stop, I regained the energy and courage to continue to become embodied along with the bravery to continue to stand for myself legally and financially. Look for me on the public stage of activism.

Wow!

I love Thai book for so many reasons. One of the main is reason is it helped me to go inside and question a lot. I have been on this path for the past 6 years of getting to know myself on a more heartfelt truthful understanding. The spiritual world helped me a lot during this path and yet some of it just did not feel 100%. This book has helped me take what I’ve learned, some of the thoughts from this book and become more aligned with what is true for me. I look forward to diving in more deeply into this work and using the exercise to get more and more clear to prepare myself to do my work and share with the world.

Thank you Jeff!!

Yes

Jeff discoveries mirror my own but I have seldom had the courage to shout them from the rooftops to a large audience. After listening to this book it was encouraging me to find that courage, ignite it, and swallow that flame to empower my words and let them leap from my soul. Heartfelt appreciation to you Jeff Brown.

too wordy too long good point in there too late

Comments were by my friend K A who read book first and so i didn’t bother to read it because of comments. I got cliff notes version of it and i owe them dinner for saving my valuable time.

Where do I begin?
First of all, the audio book could have gotten the message (if you can figure out what the message is) across in six-eight hours versus the sixteen plus hours that you had to endure. I placed it on 1.25X speed so I wouldn’t be tempted to cut my ears off. It was bad enough that I experienced a severe migraine after the first chapter. The first half is too wordy, I have a bachelors degree and I was wishing I had dictionary at times. The author is extremely angry, you can tell he still has old baggage that he needs to throw off the train. I have done personal research with drugs and I can tell you this guy is either on some or needs a prescription. He also contradicts himself; does a lot of male blaming; has issue with the patriarchy of spirituality. About half way through the book it’s as though another person has appeared (not talking about the other character). The author seems to have calmed down and is not as wordy. There is too much vulgar language even for me. When the author brings the “Michael” character in play, he, the author is doing that character as well with his voice. Not good. The conversations between them (author/Michael) are overly dramatic and stiff. Then he tries to throw in humor. Geez, we don’t need any more unemployed comedians. The author plugs his wife’s books numerous times throughout the reading. The worst were the practical exercises, OMG, every experience by “Michael” was too over the top.
I was beginning to think I got “punked” with this book. The author’s comments about mental illness shows he has no clue. The author does make some good points, but they are overshadowed or buried by all the other crap. You don’t understand what his message is until the very end...He has an agenda-the author is a Spiritual Activist and a political activist. He even wastes your time telling you all the difficulties he endured trying to complete the book. Winey, winey! I’m glad I have my poo poo somewhat together, because if I was using this as a guide, I’d end up in the madhouse or end up closer to the edge. Buyers/Readers beware! FYI- the author self published because he got turned away-
Reason- TOO WORDY!!

Boring!!!

This is a boring, boring self-display of the author’s autobiography as somehow an example to being grounded spiritually. Don’t waste your time or money.
