Living Untethered: Beyond the Human Predicament

New Harbinger. May 2022. 200p. ISBN 9781648480935. pap. $18.95. SELF-HELP
Author and spiritual teacher Singer (founder, in 1975, of Temple of the Universe, a Florida meditation and yoga center) follows up on the message of his earlier volume The Untethered Soul with this guide to living an authentic life—one that is centered in acceptance through the lens of conscious awareness. The book opens with foundational context from the physical sciences, which undergirds Singer’s extensive use of energy and energetic flow concepts as they relate to the human condition on a metaphysical level. Singer often uses terminology from Eastern philosophy and modern psychology, along with several Biblical quotes, to illustrate ideas of consciousness. His tone is casual and sometimes playful; the text is approachable with examples culled from everyday life, all in service of the book’s aim to help readers understand that they are not their thoughts and learn how to gain liberation from their mind.
VERDICT Readers interested in self-awareness, meditation, and metaphysics will find this a quick read with a couple of insightful takeaways.
