I believe this is Wilber's second book and is about 30 years old now, but it could have been written yesterday. The difference between this one and his later work is that his thoughts were simpler early on. I also finished Integral Spirituality recently and it was also good but much more complicated. Integral Theory has evolved and Wilber has had time to add complexity to the extent that some people don't even want to deal with it.
But No Boundary is not complicated. It could be tough to understand for some Western readers at first, but for me it was a very modern and accessible introduction both to Ken Wilber and to what I would call nonduality. In it's highest form I think nonduality encompases all faiths and traditions (as well as science) to at least some extent and in that sense it is integral and inclusive, just like Ken Wilber tries to be.
Although there are nondual portions of Judaism and Christianity, it is usually taught through ancient traditions like Buddhism or Taoism and because of that it's also not up to date with modern explanations. Ken does an excellent job of making the case for an integrated and inclusive path of personal growth with modern and sensible language that spoke directly to me.
One interesting part of the book that caught me off guard right away was how he breaks down the boundaries in our world and our mind. He points out that there are no actual boundaries in nature. You might think of the beach where water and land meet, but he says that is a line not a boundary. It is a place where land and water join...there is no boundary. All boundaries are conceptual and all are points of unification. What we really see are lines, not boundaries and that makes a huge difference in how they are understood.
This is one of my favorite books ever...and my new favorite author.
I acquired this book for my studies in Transpersonal Therapy but I strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys personal development. By the end of the book, Wilber gives us extensive knowledge of the processes involved in each consciousness level, the dis-eases that may appear and the recommended therapies and books. This is an amazing book, written in a very comprehensible manner, with lots of humor. I loved it and it made a huge impact on me.
