Pilgrims to Openness is a practical guidebook to authentic Indian Tantra (Kashmir Shaivism). Nearly seventy lyrical, readable essays speak with warmth, intelligence and compassion to curious beginners and more experienced practitioners alike. Many of the essays were written in response to questions from students to the author. "Do I need a Guru?" "What is suffering?" "Why am I doing spiritual practice?" These, along with topics such as "What is nonduality?", are offered in a lucid, gutsy and often humorous style. No subject is off limits, from difficult emotions, such as loneliness, to love relationships, death, kundalini, chakras, boredom, and how to wake up in the morning and for all time. The final pages offer detailed instructions for three key practices.
Pilgrims to Openness is the winner of a 2010 national Independent Publisher Book Award (an IPPY) in the category of best new books about religion.
