Consciousness Dialogues

From Beginner's Mind through Enlightenment: 150 Conversations with Peter Ralston


Formats & editions


Peter Ralston responds to 150 questions about consciousness from a global spectrum of people striving to grasp the nature of their own selves

This wide-ranging and illuminating collection of 150 questions and responses between a global spectrum of seekers and Peter Ralston provides a rare and nuanced look at the nature of consciousness and the path to understanding our true selves. Ralston, author of the groundbreaking trilogy on the existential foundations of the human condition--The Book of Not Knowing, Pursuing Consciousness, and The Genius of Being--selected inquiries he fielded over two decades and includes them here in a question-and-answer format. The mosaic of viewpoints from an astonishing diversity of real people at all levels of consciousness work yields a narrative that is intricate, digressive, intimate, and emotionally honest. The exchanges expand our understanding of consciousness, test our assumptions, and interrogate the very process of inquiry.
