Waking Up the Numinous


In each of us, there’s an indescribable, unconditioned state of being that is present every instant, in every experience. One encounter with it can alter the course of one’s entire life. Adyashanti illuminates this numinous dimension of our true nature that endeavors to awaken to itself and reveal how we are all manifestations of its timeless expression.

Topics Include:

  • Evoking the Numinous Within
  • A Transformation of Seeing
  • The Great Paradox of True Nature
  • Our Conditioned and Unconditioned Aspects
  • The Intimacy of Encountering Beingness
  • The Secret to Being Still
  • The Best Way to Not Be Distracted
  • Moving from the Numinous


“The Numinous is always right there at the center of our immediate experience of being.”

“We’re all touching, tasting, and looking from and through the Numinous.”

“There is no instant when we are not our true nature, but we can be distracted by the brighter or darker aspects of human nature.”

“In a certain sense, the spiritual instinct is the Numinous seeking its recognition of itself, its remembrance.” 

“There’s something about what’s always been that transcends our descriptions of it.”
