This book is constructed around a series of late night conversations between Cheryl Simone and Sadhguru Vasudev at her mountain retreat in rural Georgia. Part personal journey, part teaching book, MIDNIGHTS WITH THE MYSTIC is the most thorough exposition of the teaching of India's most sought after mystic. Jaggi challenges us to embrace the possibility that to each of is available a higher realm of reality; a peak of consciousness; an entree into the realm of freedom and bliss. Simone, a successful Atlanta real estate developer, is the typical baby boomer in search of an authentic spiritual experience. Her forays into Buddhism, the Kaballah and esoteric Christianity left her unsatisfied. Professionally successful, yet spiritually arid, she discovered the teaching of Jaggi. She became one of his many students and found the answers for which she was searching. Jaggi's teaching centres around Isha Yoga: a particular form of yoga that has relieved a variety of physical and emotional maladies including asthma, depression, migraines, obesity and anxiety. It is a form of yoga that revolves around breathing exercises. The material is concrete and down-to-earth.
Part of what makes this book appealing is that one gets the sense of the man, not just his teaching. This is a guy who appears to be a fairly conventional looking Indian guru, with a taste for fast cars, fast planes and practical jokes. In addition, the book includes Isha yoga exercises. "With the elegance of simplicity, this book takes you on an exploration of consciousness, that will shift you to a higher reality." Deepak Chopra "Extraordinary wisdom, the insight and clarity of logic, the language of a poet. If you read this powerful book, you will discover who you really are, who we all are." Neale Donald Walsch
