Dr. Stephen Wolinsky was a student of Nisargadatta Maharaj and the founder of Quantum Psychology. He is a major influence in the disseminating of the subtler teaching of Nisargardatta Maharaj and has put out a body of work that allows students to ‘absorb the teachings’ in an efficient manner.

Peter Brown is the founder of The Yoga of Radiant Presence. The YOGA OF RADIANT PRESENCE is the actual nature and process of reality itself, so is intrinsically the most fundamental, essential, and efficient spiritual engagement possible. It consists of the settling of all identification with orienting experience toward partial and incomplete interpretations of what it is, into the comprehensive actuality of what is authentically present; partially describable as an absolutely transcendental field of Radiant “subtle energy”, the actual energy of being/consciousness/experience itself.
Peter is the author of “Dirty Enlightenment, The Inherent Perfection of Imperfection” among other books. theopendoorway.org
Jed McKenna is a nom de plume for a prolific writer who wishes to remain anonymous.
“Jed’s books are a joy to read. They’re full of charm and humor, memorable characters and delightful dialogues. But they’re also full of something seldom found in “spiritual” books; a stark and unyielding challenge to the reader. In the end, these books are about one thing, moving beyond the ego, and that’s a territory many wish to leave unexplored. Jed’s books are not all sweetness and light, and they’re not for everyone.” https://wisefoolpress.com
“Jed McKenna is an American original, and his delightful Spiritual Enlightenment is just what is needed to wake us up from slumber. This book demystifies the subject of enlightenment, and brings it home to us – back to earth, back to who and what we are.”
