Looking forward to this, the release date has been moved to June 11th, Kindle and paperback versions pre-ordered. A list of reviews:

"A true visionary, Ken Wilber offers a perspective-changing approach to stepping into the fullness of your life!"
--Tony Robbins, New York Times #1 best-selling author

"With this exploration of the structures of Growing Up and states of Waking Up, Wilber's wisdom does it again. If, like myself, you are struggling with the disturbing rise in global conflict, frustrated fighting to end a seemingly relentless social problem, or wrestling with deep personal challenges, take a breather to take this in. In a time of brutal division, Wilber's authority as philosopher helps me navigate moments when I painfully disagree with what is said, and gives me an uncompromising reminder to rethink my perspectives with an open head and heart toward myself and others, to quiet my monkey mind, to appreciate all our potential, and ready myself to recommit to a life in the now."
--Julia Ormond, Actor/Activist

"Finding Radical Wholeness is a guide for all people who seek to integrate wholeness into every aspect of their lives. It is an extraordinary self-help book. It seamlessly integrates ancient and current Eastern spiritual knowledge and contemporary Western psychology about human flourishing. It shows the reader a many-faceted path toward personal growth and awakening without relinquishing the jewels of thousands of years of human striving for wholeness. This book champions a compelling and liberating view of humanity."
--Dr. Susanne R. Cook-Greuter, independent scholar of developmental psychology and author

"'Wholeness' is an ideal sought by many people and many movements, but in Finding Radical Wholeness, Ken Wilber unlocks the concept to reveal further dimensions and possibilities, and thereby gives us a richer, fuller, and more compelling vision of what wholeness is and what we can be."
--Roger Walsh, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry, Philosophy, and Anthropology, University of California

"Ken Wilber has written an exceptional guide for the spiritual-but-not-religious reader. Drawing from a lifetime of contemplation, Wilber presents an intriguing and compelling vision of Wholeness, seamlessly integrating traditional wisdom, modern-day insights, and practical transformative techniques. Like all of his work, this book provides us with a roadmap for genuine spiritual engagement and a compass pointing the way toward our spiritual evolution."
--Diane Musho Hamilton, professional mediator and author of The Zen of You and Me

Sounds like a title I wanna read. May be the first one I read all the way through but haven't looked into it.

I love Ken's work. I've listened to many talks.

However, I have other books I read and only so much time. This one sounds like it builds off the models I enjoy.

The guy's intellectually brilliant. I wonder how much of what he talks about he's directly conscious of.

I don't use that term anymore.

He's pretty conscious and intelligent though. For a human.

The dreaded E word.

We don't use such terms around these parts.


"God is not a conclusion, it is a sudden revelation. When you see a rose it is not that you go through a logical solipsism, 'This is a rose, and roses are beautiful, so this must be beautiful.' The moment you see it, the head stops spinning thoughts. On the contrary, your heart starts beating faster. It is something totally different from the idea of truth." -Osho

@Leo Gura I've always thought it would be nice to have a Ken Wilber's review on your book


God-Realize, this is First Business. Know that unless you live properly, this is not possible.

There is this body, you should know the requirements of your body. This is first duty. We have obligations towards others, loved ones, family, society, etc. Without material wealth we cannot do these things, for that a professional duty.

There is Mind; mind is tricky. Its higher nature should be nurtured, then Mind becomes mature and Conscious. When all Duties are continuously fulfilled, then life becomes steady. In this steady life God is available; via 5-MeO-DMT, ...                       Lovingly discipline Life & Realize Absolute Infinity

Don't know if you're being sarcastic or not. It can be called however you want, really. I mean it as a profound consciousness of one's nature.

Probably nothing.

The title itself is stupid. "Radical wholeness"? You're either whole or you aren't, no need for adjectival modifiers.  Only a complete asshole would title a book that. :P

This is actually incorrect. There are degrees of wholeness. So the title is likely appropriate.

That said, I don't suspect there will be much new ground covered in this book.
