Throughout history, great men and women have described exalted experiences of extraordinary wakefulness, freedom, and bliss—as different as our ordinary waking experience is from dreaming. Laozi, Plato, Rūmī, St. Teresa of Avila, Emerson, Emily Dickinson, Black Elk, Einstein—people of all times and places have described experiences that rank among the most inspiring in all of literature.

Dr. Pearson’s talk about his book, The Supreme Awakening, offers a rich collection of these experiences—and shows how ordinary men and women today are enjoying the same kinds of sublime experiences celebrated by the Buddha, Wordsworth, Thoreau, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and many others—simply by practicing the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation.

Drawing on the work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, The Supreme Awakening explains how these experiences arise and provides a systematic way of categorizing them.

Also, it describes a practical method—the effortless technique of Transcendental Meditation—that anyone can use to cultivate these remarkable experiences and enjoy the unparalleled benefits.

Finally, the book shows the immense practical benefits, for every area of life, of cultivating enlightenment.

Craig Pearson is Executive Vice-President of Maharishi University of Management, in Fairfield, Iowa. He holds a PhD in Maharishi Vedic Science and based his doctoral dissertation on the research he did for this book.
