Spirituality is about the direct exploration of our subjective sense of being. Yet most seekers are more interested in changing or attaining some experience rather than deeply inquiring into the nature of who they actually are. In this 90-minute talk with a dialogue, Adyashanti describes different phases of the enlightenment journey, and the shifts in identity that come with these stages of awakened consciousness. His talk culminates in pointing beyond identity altogether -- whether that be egoic, witness, or unity identity -- to the indescribable and essential ground of undifferentiated being.

Quotes from this DVD:
“Awakening involves a fundamental shift in the experience of your being, a shift in identity.”
“When identity lets go as the witness, the witness collapses into everything, into the experience of undifferentiated being.”
“The superconsciousness of undifferentiated being is what most seekers are after.”
“The only way we can go into the void is to transcend the survival instinct. When you get in the vicinity of this, the most common reaction is absolute terror.”
