In his endorsement for Stephan’s book Wake Up Now: A Guide to the Journey of Spiritual Awakening, Adyashanti writes: “Both profound and practical, Wake Up Now guides the reader through the intricacies of awakening as only someone who has walked the walk themselves can do. The clarity and compassion this book offers the sincere spiritual seeker are both rare and welcome.”
