I'm not endorsing every single word spoken or written by any of these authors including Joan Tollifson.
The list includes books from a variety of different perspectives, and in many cases, they may seem to contradict each other. Some of them say that life including you and your whole spiritual journey is nothing but a dream-like illusion, while others say this present happening is all there is.
Some insist that there is nothing to do other than exactly what is happening, while others offer some kind of apparent process, practice or method for waking up. Some seem to suggest that "you" have the power of choice, while others say that everything is the result of infinite causes and conditions and that there is no one apart from this whole happening to direct or control it.
Some say liberation is found in the realization of complete impermanence while others insist it comes with the recognition of that which never changes. Some insist that Consciousness is all there is, while others accept the prevailing materialist view that consciousness is an epiphenomenon of the brain, and still others say there is no way to know what this is.
Who has it right? What should you believe? No words or concepts can capture reality. Maps are useful, but they can only describe and point to the territory itself.
Eating the meal is what nourishes you, not reading the menu. Take what resonates and leave the rest behind. Don't believe anything you read, but instead, question, look, listen, feel into it, and see for yourself.

All my books include material drawn from my own life, and several of them are wholly or partly in the form of personal narrative or memoir. At the same time, all of them are about seeing through the stories of our lives and waking up from the belief that we are an autonomous, separate individual who is authoring our thoughts and making our decisions.
These books all invite the discovery that the body-mind-world is an undivided, seamless, ever-changing, ungraspable, unresolvable happening with no inside or outside. My books explore questions of identity, free will, addiction and other forms of human suffering, and the nature of experience.
A fifth book is in the works exploring aging, dying and the embrace of groundlessness.

I spent five years living and working at the retreat center she founded in northwestern New York, and we remained in touch until her death in at the age of Toni was a former Zen teacher who began to question the rituals, beliefs, dogmas and hierarchy of traditional Zen. She was deeply affected by her contact with J.
Krishnamurti, and she eventually left formal Zen practice behind. She continued to offer silent retreats, but in a much more open and bare-bones way.
Toni wasn't interested in the abstractions of metaphysics, philosophy or ideology, and her work was always rooted in present moment awareness, direct insight, and the breath and bones of ordinary life. The mind habitually wants comforting, feel-good answers; Toni provided none: Not a movement away, an escape into something that will provide what this state does not provide, or doesn't seem to provide: Just completely, unconditionally listening to what's here now, is that possible?
She was wonderful at waking you up to the wonder, simplicity and immediacy of the nondual absolute: There is a delicate subtlety and a spaciousness in her work, combined with a relentless ability to slice through all forms of self-deception.
Toni approached meditative inquiry with the curiosity of a scientist—everything had to be tested, seen directly, never taken on faith or on someone else's authority—and whatever was discovered could always be questioned, looked at anew, taken further.Intro duction.
