Summary

Teachings and meditations to "shift" into the freedom of awakening.

It is possible to access the same sense of well-being, clarity, inner freedom, and loving connection realized by the world's meditation masters. We can do this by shifting our awareness in the midst of our daily lives. Shift into Freedom is an unabridged audiobook presentation of innovative teacher Loch Kelly's training manual for actively participating in the evolution of your own consciousness.

Synthesizing insights from neuroscience and psychology with wisdom from the world's contemplative traditions, Shift into Freedom offers an accessible and remarkably powerful series of meditations that lead us to a little-known natural capacity called "awake awareness". Through an unfolding process of "small glimpses, many times", these exercises shift us from a thought-based knowing to an awareness-based way of operating in the world.

With continued practice, we learn to "unhook" from our customary home in our ego-based identity - and then sustain an embodied presence and relatedness known as "open-hearted awareness". Loch Kelly teaches that this is "the meeting place of awakening and growing up, where we have the capacity to handle a fully emotional, intimate life and act with authenticity and compassion."

"The goal of these meditations is not to transcend the human condition," explains Loch Kelly, "but to discover how to live a fully intimate human life." Shift into Freedom gives you the tools to navigate your life with clarity and unconditional love.

A very achievable path to peace

A clear pathway that can be followed by modern Western Man. Loch demystifies the mystical in a way that we are ready to hear. His clarity flows out of his direct experience but is enhanced by careful reference to a wide variety of sources of wisdom. Great and just what the world needs right now!

Great listen, clear and detailed

Brilliant read for those who have some basic contemplative / mediation experience. I found Loch Kelly through Sam Harris and his Waking up App. Loch offers a western, logically spin on spiritual ideas and explain things very clearly - really appreciate his work!

Glimpse practices are SO effective

I really struggled to get much value from Mindfulness-based practices before reading this book. The glimpse practices are SO effective - effortless mindfulness is changing my life for the better.

peace at last! Deepest thank you Loch

Dear Loch I have been waiting forty years for this to happen. But after a couple of weeks of doing your glimse practices I found myself sitting on a bench with my dog and laughing like the laughing buddha. At peace, everything I needed, calm, joyful, relaxed, experiencing everything as part of me. I think the dog knew it too. Deepest thank you, thank you, thank I you Loch. Gary Wilson

Like a fuzzy LASER doing loop de loops: 5 stars!

This book was great & weird & totally illuminating while being confusing: a fuzzy laser beam doing loop de loops. He seemed to use terms of his own creation before ever defining them. He moved quickly through what I'm sure is his clear vision of how these are related. Then this would be followed by dismantling/revealing the lie of the ego with a flick of the wrist. I look forward to absorbing this content on a loop until it is as clear as it apparently is to Loch. This was exactly what I needed.

Excellent

The narrator was excellent. The glimpse practices are easy to follow and the explanation is straight forward. There is a shift in perspective when you really listen to this book.

Awesome!

Awesome! A wonderful overview of the process of awakening. Plus how to experiment step by step. This book bridges a missing link in the contemporary pedagogy of awakening.

Helpful words for the wordless

I’ve been meditating for more then a decade and I really appreciate Lochs ability to give words, phrases, and practical exercises to mindfulness experiences that are usually beyond words. I’m grateful for the accessibility of these books and glimpse exercises! It’s an exceptional book series for beginners or advanced meditation and mindfulness practitioners.

Take the chance to embody this book, merge mind and soul.

The book was a fantastic precursor before his workshop in Berkeley. It’s really great to practice this in a group with others. I highly recommend all therapists and counselors even caregivers to really take the time to dive into this practice and allow yourself to integrate this into your daily life.

Thank you!

This book will not disappoint. Being familiar with Loch Kelly from his meditations featured on Sam Harris’ Waking Up app, I knew I was in for a treat as I began Shift into Freedom. Also, being a clinical Social Worker myself, I found this book to be an indispensable adjunct to my work using the Internal Family Systems modality. Thank you Loch! - J. LaReau
