“If you ever doubted that your feline companion has her own inner life, just watch what happens when she falls asleep, and loses conscious control of her physical being . . . a twitching of limbs, a quivering of the jaw, sometimes, perhaps, a snuffling noise or a meow.
. . . Cats may indeed be capable of great mindfulness, but we are thinking beings too. In my own case, unfortunately, a being who thinks rather too much.”

In the latest installment of the Dalai Lama’s Cat series, His Holiness’s Cat (“HHC”) is on a mission: to think less, to experience more, to live in the moment. She soon learns the proper phrase for this, being mindful, or, a concept better known to her as the power of meow. What ensues is a journey to discover her own true nature, to gain a deeper understanding of her mind, and to experience life’s greatest joy, the here and now.

Throughout, there are encounters with familiar inhabitants of Dharamsala, as well as a whole new cast of characters: a senior exec from one of Silicon Valley’s most famous social media companies (hint: the name rhymes with “litter”), the Pope’s beloved dog (who shares a shockingly similar title: HHD, His Holiness’s Dog), and a public health inspector who threatens to have our poor narrator banned from the Himalaya Book Café.

In this follow-up to the Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring, readers escape to the enchanting and exotic world of the Dalai Lama’s monastery in the Himalayas, and take a peek inside the mind of a delightfully imperfect creature on the path to enlightenment. By accompanying HHC on her journey, you will learn new ways to relate to your own mind: slowing down, finding peace, and abiding in the boundless radiance and benevolence that is your own true nature.

David Michie is the best-selling author of The Dalai Lama’s Cat, Buddhism for Busy People, and Hurry Up and Meditate. All have been published internationally in many different languages. David was born in Zimbabwe, educated at Rhodes University, South Africa, and lived in London for ten years.

It is possible to access the same sense of well-being, clarity, inner freedom, and loving connection realized by the world’s meditation masters. We can do this by shifting our awareness in the midst of our daily lives. Shift into Freedom presents innovative teacher Loch Kelly’s training manual for actively participating in the evolution of your own consciousness.

Synthesizing insights from neuroscience and psychology with wisdom from the world’s contemplative traditions, Shift into Freedom offers an accessible and remarkably powerful series of meditations that lead us to a little-known natural capacity called “awake awareness.” Through an unfolding process of “small glimpses, many times,” these exercises shift us from a thought-based knowing to an awareness-based way of operating in the world. With continued practice, we learn to “unhook” from our customary home in our ego-based identity-and then sustain an embodied presence and relatedness known as “open-hearted awareness.” Loch Kelly teaches that is “the meeting place of awakening and growing up, where we have the capacity to handle a fully emotional, intimate life and act with authenticity and compassion.”

Learn more about:

  • How to separate awareness from thinking to realize that thoughts and emotions are not the center of who we are
  • How insights from neuroscience can help us learn how to embody awakening
  • Ego-identification, a pattern of thought that co-opts the body’s boundary program and creates a mistaken identity
  • The paradox of “being home while returning home”
  • Finding the off-switch for the chattering mind
  • How to intentionally and immediately shift into peace of mind any time of your day
  • Awakening as a natural process of human development, which unfolds as waking up, waking in, and waking out
  • Meditation practices for all phases of the journey of awakening and embodiment
  • Four stages of spiritual growth: recognition, realization, stabilization, and expression
  • Untying the “knots” in our mindbody system to liberate us from our deepest doubts and fears
  • How to move from deliberate mindfulness to effortless mindfulness and heart mindfulness
  • How to effortlessly focus without using attention
  • Discovering your innate happiness that is not dependent on circumstances
  • How to welcome and liberate sub-personalities after initial awakening
  • A user’s manual for your consciousness to help you free yourself from the limits of ego-identification and live from open-hearted awareness


Loch Kelly, MDiv, LCSW, is a teacher, consultant, and leader in the field of meditation and psychotherapy who was asked to teach by Mingyur Rinpoche and Adyashanti. The founder of the Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, he is an emerging voice in modernizing meditation, social engagement, and collaborating with neuroscientists to study how awareness training can enhance compassion and well-being.
Loch Kelly: Falling Awake

Loch describes how awakening is not something you can accomplish. Awake awareness is our natural condition and is equally available in each of us, as each of us now. We can learn how to intentionally shift awareness so that our true nature becomes primary, which changes how we view everything.
Loch Kelly – Awakening: A View with Some Room

This is a wonderful video from one of Loch’s classes. He describes in a beautifully simple way how we move from a limited, ego-centered view to an awake, spacious, and embodied feeling of Being. It’s not an animated video, but you will enjoy Loch’s animated style of communicating to you.

“The Journey After Awakening” Adyashanti & Loch Kelly

Awakening to our true nature does not mark the end of the spiritual path—it’s just the beginning. In this intimate and compelling dialogue, Adyashanti and Loch Kelly explore the journey after awakening.

Adyashanti, author of Emptiness Dancing, The Impact of Awakening, and True Meditation, dares all seekers of peace and freedom to take the possibility of liberation seriously. His spontaneous and direct teachings have opened the door for many seekers to awaken to their true nature and live an awakened life.

A conversation with Peter Russell about how the exploration of consciousness has evolved in the past 50 years.

Peter Russell is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest. At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation. He has written several books in this area — The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Global Brain Awakens, The Creative Manager, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time, and From Science to God.

Awakening can be the natural next stage of human development. Awakening is not a rare event limited to those who leave for the monastery or cave. We can awaken in the midst of our daily lives by discovering what Loch Kelly calls “open-hearted awareness.” For the past two decades, this innovative psychotherapist and meditation teacher has been helping people from every background learn how to access a spacious, natural way of living in tune with a deeper truth.

Shift into Freedom presents Loch Kelly’s original synthesis of ancient wisdom, modern psychological insights, current neuroscience research, and unique awareness practices for the body, mind, and heart. Written for both first-time and lifelong meditators, here is a training guide filled with simple and effective experiential tools for “unhooking” awareness from our chattering minds and dropping into our awake heart space, expanding our sense of intimacy and interconnection, and embodying inner peace, clarity, and love.

A huge, old carp uncaught and unseen for decades. But now Jay and Carl had seen it, was the strength of their friendship about to be tested to its limit? Jack’s wisdom was old, centuries old, and he knew that Jay was so close to enlightenment; was he able to find the final piece to the puzzle? And then there was Maya; did she hold the key to all of this, or was it just an Illusion?
It is time to be enlightened…

An Illusion of Maya is a carp fishing novel, but not just any carp fishing novel. It’s a carp fishing novel for people who realise that there is so much more to going fishing than just catching fish; and that there is so much more to life than just living.

Yes there are fish, huge fish. There is elation and heartache; there is humour and sadness; there is love and hate, but there is much, much more, and this book portrays all these emotions beautifully.

This is, of necessity, a very adult-themed book, and the language and interaction mirror that – be warned, this is a carp fishing novel for grown-ups and, without doubt, the first one of its kind, so don’t expect page after page of fishing clichés. Open your mind – Believe me, you will be enlightened.

Phil Escott is a health writer, personal trainer, novelist and drummer who has spent many years in the health and fitness industry, running a gym, writing for many magazines and training hundreds of clients successfully. Due to a crippling bout of inflammatory arthritis in 2010, which he reversed by natural means, further intense study revealed many “secrets” of healing normally hidden behind the misleading conventional medical and “health” dogma. His aim now is to share this knowledge with as many as possible to help them attain their health and happiness goals too.

Phil Escott considers himself a spiritual idiot. He says he has made every mistake and taken every wrong turn possible… but then again there is no such thing as a wrong turn.

Born in 1962 in the south of England, he had many glimpses of the absolute even as a young child. The fascination with all things mysterious continued through his teens, and he became fascinated with Indian culture and spirituality, devouring books such as Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi and Muktanada’s Play of Consciousness. In 1979 he started experimenting heavily with hallucinogenics, pretending to be Carlos Castaneda. Shortly after this he experienced a spectacular awakening, but with no guidance or knowledge of what might have happened he resisted it, plunging into a couple of years of tremendous fear and suffering.

In 1983 he learned TM, which calmed the unpleasant experiences, and then went on to do the TM Sidhi course in 1986, moving to Skelmersdale, the UK’s largest TM community, where he faithfully followed the programme for a decade or more, searching far too hard for the “prize”. By 2000 he had become somewhat disillusioned, and by 2006 his meditation practice was sporadic at best. One day, upon deciding to just let go totally of TM, in that moment he experienced the same awakening that hit him back in 1979. This time though, there was surrender, and it stuck.

However, there was, as is so often the case, far more work to do. By 2010, to his astonishment, he found himself crippled with arthritis and other ailments, and a long, dark night of the soul followed as he was forced to throw out many accumulated dogmas, facing a total reassessment of lifestyle, diet and emotional issues, refusing conventional medicine. Upon gradually regaining his physical health, he experienced a further awakening in 2013 when using Byron Katie’s approach to unlock certain emotional blocks, and the heart opened. Since then he has been “back in the marketplace” while the experience deepens day by day.

He still lives in Skelmersdale where he helps people to find their way out of autoimmune issues through his website at pureactivity.net, has a novel published (An Illusion of Maya), plays drums in several bands and enjoys his wonderful family. He is working on a book about how he healed himself, which will be called “Arthritis, The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me” focusing on the blessing of illness and how it can be a clear pointer to evolving, and perhaps even awakening.

The huge mystery to him now is that he didn’t notice the unity of everything and spent his life striving for what was there all along. His dream is to help people to notice this elusive but simple and natural miracle for themselves.

Sri Karunamayi is revered in India as an embodiment of Divine Motherly Love, due to the love and affection that she showers liberally on all people, animals, and even plants, the spiritual knowledge and guidance that she gives freely to all of humanity, and the humanitarian works that she has undertaken. “Amma” as she is affectionately called by her followers, is simply the Telugu word for “mother”- Telugu being Amma’s native language.

Born in 1958 in South India, Sri Karunamayi spent a childhood immersed in an atmosphere of prayer and worship created by her deeply spiritual parents. Both of her parents had received visions indicating that Sri Karunamayi was not an ordinary child, and her astrological chart indicated that she would dedicate her life to serving humanity.

Naturally inclined towards charity as a child, Sri Karunamayi, or “Amma,” would often give away food and clothes to whomever needed them.

As she grew into a young woman, Amma felt an inner urge to begin spending more and more time in the family worship room, immersed in prayer and meditation. As she was now a first-year college student, she was forced to make time for meditation by reducing the time she spent sleeping. As her meditations deepened and intensified, she also began reducing her intake of food. These meditation sessions grew in length until one day Amma locked herself inside a room of the house and remained there in meditation for a month.

Though her family members were perplexed, they did not dare to disturb her, having witnessed the profundity of her meditations before. When she finally emerged, she seemed like a different person to her family members. Though she still showed the same sweet affection to which they were accustomed, her demeanor now expressed a more impersonal, universal love. Determined to fulfill the sacred purpose of her life, Amma gently told her mother that it was time for her to go into seclusion in the sacred Penusila Forest, to meditate there in solitude. Always respectful of her daughter’s divine nature, and trusting completely in God, Amma’s mother did not try to stop her from going.

Amma never felt that these meditations were done for her own sake, as she was following the example of India’s ancient Vedic sages, who meditated for hundreds of years in order to discover the best teachings for all of mankind. Through Amma’s austerities, she determined which of the Vedic teachings and practices would be of greatest benefit to people living in this difficult modern age. After performing such intense tapasya for over 10 years, Amma decided that it was time to share her knowledge with all those who thirsted for true spirituality, wherever they may live in the world.

Emerging from her seclusion in the sacred Penusila Forest, Amma began giving public discourses on various aspects of Sanatana Dharma, India’s ancient spirituality, and conducting sacred ceremonies to promote world peace and universal well-being. At this time, Amma also began Her work on serving humanity in the eradication of poverty, providing free medical care & housing for the disadvantaged, stopping child labour through free schooling and mentorship programs, and supplying water treatment facilities to those impoverished communities that have been severely affected from toxic water resources. After performing such intense tapasya for over 10 years, Amma moved to a more urban area to share her knowledge with all those who thirsted for spirituality, wherever they may live in the world.

In 1995, Amma began reaching out to the world, beginning with the US, where She offers yearly public programs. During these programs Amma gives teachings and blessings, holds meditation retreats, and performs sacred fire ceremonies for the benefit of all of humankind & the world. During her visits to each city, countless followers come to express their worries and problems and to request blessings or guidance. And to this end, Amma uses Her own sari to wipe away the tears from Her children’s eyes as She comforts every follower with Divine Motherly Love. Amma often likes to say that Her only work in this world is to remove the suffering from the hearts of Her children. This she does through Her kind, loving words of spiritual guidance and encouragement, Her healing touch, and Her divine knowledge and insight. Today Amma divides Her time between the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia and India, fulfilling Her life’s mission of providing comfort, solace, and spiritual guidance to all who come to Her.

Dorothy Rowe was clairvoyant as a child, but a rough teenage period caused her abilities to wane. After learning Transcendental Meditation in her mid-teens, the inner vision began to return. She moved to Fairfield, Iowa in 1980 and devoted herself to creating world peace by meditating with a large group of people practicing the TM and TM-Sidhi Program. She became a teacher of Transcendental Meditation in 1986. She taught Transcendental Meditation and raised a family, while also teaching dance and music.

Then in early 2008, she underwent a transformation. The change in awareness happened quite suddenly, but it took months for Dorothy to realize that this opening of awareness was to be used for healing. Quietly, she healed herself and others, without sharing her experiences. In 2012, Dorothy was invited to do some healing work for compensation. By word of mouth only, her practice has grown. She now has clients on four continents.

She currently offers private consultations by phone and Skype and Distance Energy Work sessions through her website, http://distanceenergywork.com. The website also offers free resources on energy healing. You can also find her at her YouTube channel, Distance Energy Work.
