Here it is!

A while back I rather mysteriously referred to a project I'd been helping with. Well, here it is! Jon Bernie's radiant book, Ordinary Freedom. I was lucky enough to help transcribe at least one talk for the book and was part of the proofreading team. I'm so delighted to be able to share it with you now.

"To find an accomplished spiritual teacher is a rare gift. To find a book that puts you in a most lively way in the presence of such a teacher is even more rare. But here it is! Jon Bernie’s Ordinary Freedom has all the power of the spoken word and vibrates with the overtones of that teacher’s caring, compassionate nearness. Deep, yet always simple; simple, yet never simplistic; clear, eloquent, and always to the point, Ordinary Freedom is not an ordinary book. It springs from freedom and breathes freedom. Caution: This book may be hazardous to your current level of consciousness!"
