About

Track Details

01  Pure Awareness (19 minutes)

These tracks were the ones that allowed me to experience totally diffuse boundaries, to regain my sense Suchness, and help me accept all that is in my life currently – deep experience of non-attachment and equanimity.  ~ Lisa Celentano, MA, LMHCA

02   Stillpoint (21 minutes)

The cue for “still point” and rubbing fingers together was something I brought into my daily life and used a lot outside of the meditation.  ~D.R.

03   Beyond Story into Being (21 minutes)

I really enjoyed how Story Into Being keeps you ‘in the moment’.  I work with coaching clients, and this is one of the things I teach them.  How to not focus on the past or the future. How to move through their feelings like a  baby does. Acknowledge the feeling and then let it go. This track does that. It keeps reminding you to ‘stay present’.  ~ Cynthia

04   Sudden Awakening (14 minutes)

With  “Direct Awakening” (Sudden Awakening) I went through a whole story of feelings, mood, awareness as well as insights. At the end (on the next day) I stood in a very good result with everything.  ~ Karen Lee-Lohmann

Bonus Digital Track: 05   Pure Awareness with Silence (19 minutes)

My physical body and brain floats in feel-good bliss. Everyone deserves this meditation.  ~ Abigail

The Story of the Development of Shortcuts to Awakening  from the creator, Jonathan Robinson

I love helping people experience deep feelings of peace, joy, and love. As a popular professional speaker, I’ve guided thousands of people in workshops in various types of guided meditations. I’ve had the chance to see what really “works” for people—and what does not. In most cases, people enjoyed and were “wowed” by guided meditations that helped to reveal the pure awareness that is the background and the foundation of all our experiences.

Since Pam and John Dupuy are friends of mine, I eventually tried out some of my meditations on them. They thought they were fantastic and wondered if I would be interested in recording them for iAwake. I said, “hell yes.” With their help editing, choosing appropriate brainwave entrainment tracks as background, and loving encouragement, the project proceeded as a labor of love.

I’m very excited to have Shortcuts to Awakening  now available to everyone—-including me. With the simple push of a button or click on your computer, awakening to pure awareness has never been easier or faster!

No Guru Needed

The experience of being pure awareness is often considered the most important result of years of meditation.

However, with the right methods and audio technology, it can be experienced rather quickly and easily.

Each of the four guided meditations in this program is designed to help you wake up, go beyond identifying with your body, emotions, and thoughts, and instead experience pure beingness.

By listening to these guided meditations, you will be opening a door to new depths of peace, love, and transcendence.

These tracks are specifically designed to help you meditate more effectively and to save you years of trying to figure out how to meditate. No guru needed.

Some key experiences people report:

Sudden Awakening

Sudden Awakening came to my rescue on several days where I was tight on time but loads of stress. The minute-by-minute experience kept me present with kind and useful advice. I appreciate the back to basics/keep it simple and straightforward approach on the many days when I’m taking it a minute at a time. This meditation is a life raft.  ~ Abigail

Pure Awareness

These tracks were the ones that allowed me to experience totally diffuse boundaries, to regain my sense Suchness, and help me accept all that is in my life currently – deep experience of non-attachment and equanimity.  ~ Lisa Celentano, MA, LMHCA

Stillpoint

Stillpoint presents the best of the self-hypnosis techniques–progressive relaxation, mantras, counting down exercise. Solid and practical. Love the heart center meditation. Depth and breadth that’s invigorating.  ~ Abigail

The cue for “still point” and rubbing fingers together was something I brought into my daily life and used a lot outside of the meditation.  ~ DR

I’m not a huge fan of guided meditations but this one was great,
the narrative hugely contributed to the deep states I was in while listening to the tracks.  ~ D.R.

This is probably the best introduction to pure awareness related practice I’ve come across, and I would highly recommend it to beginners. Wish I’d had it when I first started – it would have shaved off hours of tinkering, frustrations, and confusion…  ~ S. C. “coffeegoeswild”
