Rabbi Rami: Your new book, Better Than Sex: The Ecstatic Art of Awakening Coaching, lays out a powerful and practical model for living. Let’s start with the basics. What do you mean by “awakening”?Arjuna Ardagh: The essence of awakening is extremely simple. Right now you hear a sound or see an object, but who is this “I” that hears and sees? When we look into this “I” we discover consciousness, awareness. It has no boundaries. It is silent, still, and full of creativity and humor. It is the solution to our problems. It is love; it is love itself. Awakening means realizing who you really are, and recognizing the nature of consciousness itself.Is that what Awakening Coaching is all about?This is only part of it.

The founder of Awakening Coaching Training, Arjuna Ardagh is devoted to “the awakening of consciousness within the context of ordinary life.” He spoke with Rabbi Rami Shapiro about his new book, Better Than Sex: The Ecstatic Art of Awakening Coaching (Awakening Coaching, 2013).


Rabbi Rami Shipiro

Rabbi Rami Shapiro is an award-winning author, essayist, poet, and teacher. His spiritual advice column, "Roadside Assistance for the Spiritual Traveler," addresses reader questions pertaining to religion, spirituality, faith, family, God, social issues, and more.

His newest book is The World Wisdom Bible.

He has this to say about religion: "To me, religions are like languages: no language is true or false; all languages are of human origin; each language reflects and shapes the mindset of the civilization that speaks it; there are things you can say in one language that you cannot say or cannot say as well in another; and the more languages you know, the more nuanced your understanding of life. Judaism is my mother tongue, yet in matters of the spirit I strive to be multi-lingual. In the end, however, the deepest language of the soul is silence."
