More than thirty years ago, an entire generation sought a new way of life, looking for fulfillment and meaning in a way no one had before. Leaving his teaching job at Harvard, Ram Dass embodied the role of spiritual seeker, showing others how to find peace within themselves in one of the greatest spiritual classics of the twentieth century, the two-million-copy bestseller Be Here Now.
As many of that generation enter the autumn of their years, the big questions of peace and of purpose have returned demanding answers. And once again, Ram Dass blazes a new trail, inviting all to join him on the next stage of the journey.
About the Author
Ram Dass has served on the faculty at Stanford and Harvard Universities. In the 1960s, he traveled to India, where he met his guru. Since then, he has pursued a variety of spiritual practices, including guru kripa, devotional yoga, karma yoga, many forms of meditation, and Sufi and Jewish studies. Many of his books, including Be Here Now, are international bestsellers and classics of their kind.
“A superb writer…infused with profound wisdom of the heart and mind, a welcome sense of humor and a savvy effectiveness in the real world.”
The San Francisco Chronicle
“Back then, when we were young and easy, Ram Dass taught us to be fully present to our lives. Here and now we’re not as young and it’s not so easy, but he’s still teaching us how to age with courage and compassion.”
Sam Keen, bestselling author of Fire in the Belly
“Ram Dass continues to share his ongoing journey with us, to our great benefit, as usual. He is wiser here, more sober, more humble, and funnier than ever. There is so much to laugh about and cry about, to learn from, and to celebrate together.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, bestselling author of Wherever You Go, There You Are, and Full Catastrophe Living
“Ram Dass has given us yet another blessing. When you finish this book you are wiser, freer, more awake, more in touch with your heart.”
Jack Kornfeld, author of A Path With Heart
