Touching on everything from relationships to work to the body, Amoda Maa teaches how to live a femininely embodied spirituality...

About the Author
Amoda Maa is a contemporary spiritual teacher, author, and speaker. After years of spiritual seeking, meditation, and immersion in psychospiritual practices, an experience of the dark night of the soul led her to a profound inner awakening. Then, after a long period of integration, she began speaking from silence in small gatherings. She offers meetings and retreats, and is a frequent speaker at conferences and events, attracting spiritual seekers and people looking for peace and fulfillment in an increasingly chaotic world. Her teachings are free of religion and tradition, and she brings to them a deep understanding of the human journey, born out of her own experience.
Amoda Maa is author of Radical Awakening (formerly How to Find God in Everything) and Change Your Life, Change Your World, both of which arose out of a mystical vision around the time of her awakening. In this vision, she was shown the key to humanity’s suffering and the potential for the birth of a new consciousness and world. Embodied Enlightenment is based on both her vision for humanity and the conversations on the cutting edge of spiritual inquiry in her meetings with people from all around the world. She lives with her husband and beloved, Kavi, in California. To learn more, visit http://www.amodamaa.com.
Foreword writer John Welwood, PhD, is a psychotherapist, author, and teacher specializing in the integration of Eastern spiritual wisdom and Western psychology. His books include Journey of the Heart, Perfect Love, Imperfect Relationships, and Toward a Psychology of Awakening.

First of all I love the way Amoda Maa writes, the content is always engaging and easy to read. I have not had the opportunity to meet with Amoda Maa in person, but I have listened to her talking on Youtube videos, and this book flows with her lively, compassionate and peaceful presence.
The chapters progress from an overall view of the world we are living in today towards an ever deeper enquiry into what it means to be a fully embodied and awakened human being living in today's world. As the book progresses I am finding that almost every page has a sentence or paragraph that jumps out at me to read and re-read and then invites me to stop and digest and contemplate.
As someone who has a life-time habit to overcome of not being fully present in my body, I particularly enjoyed the chapter on "The Body as A Gateway To Liberation." "Mindfulness" is the big buzzword today in discussions relating to emotional and psychological well-being in todays fast-paced lifestyle. But from my experience, mindfulness by itself is not enough. We need to be learn to be fully embodied. Amoda Maa beautifully explains why this is so.
I know that I will be keeping this book by my side to revisit long after I finish it on this first round. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This book is for people who deeply sense that self-help, psychology, natural healing, and metaphysics are not sufficient for Knowing Real Freedom.
Until the KNOWER is included in one's inquiry ... the inquiry is incomplete.
Amoda Maa powerfully and gracefully INVITES the reader into this level of inquiry. Her approach is radically feminine ... no prescriptions ... no techniques ... simply a direct invitation to ALLOW awareness and acceptance ... with courage, grace, and compassion.
I highly recommend this book ... IF you are ready!
Blessings and Namaste!
I like that she works out all the dirty details in a most honest and realistic way. No more "pie up in the sky, waiting for me when I die." Almost every aspect of life as we know is illuminated by Amoda from the enlightened perspective, relationships, money, health, psychological complexes, and yet each bears the seal of a new freedom, a breath of fresh air, an refreshing clarity. I totally recommend Embodied Enlightenment, the book and life.
Amoda Maa writes from her own experience authentically, without having to fit into any preconceived ideas about enlightenment.
I love her message of being Fully Awake and Fully Human. Her book has helped me to accept lovingly, my humanness as part of my Oneness.
