Publisher's Summary

Constructed around a series of late night conversations around a camp fire between Cheryl Simone and Sadhguru Vasudev on an Island in the middle of a Western North Carolina lake near her mountain home, Midnights with the Mystic is the most thorough exposition of the teachings of India's most sought after mystic.

Sadhguru challenges us to embrace the possibility that to each of us is available a higher realm of reality, a peak of consciousness; an entre into the realm of freedom and bliss. Concrete and down-to-earth, Midnights with the Mystic both provides listeners with an introduction to profound spiritual teaching and a personal glimpse of a charismatic guru.

I had a bunch of questions about Sadhguru and Inner engineering. This book answers the skeptic in me with generosity.

Thank you for the audio book.

Sadhguru is a fascinating subject

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Maybe. Anytime Sadhguru was speaking, I was in rapt attention. Cheryl Simone really got on my nerves. I experienced her as a needy new age groupie and her quest for enlightenment was one annoying cliche after the another.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

See above

Do you think Midnights with The Mystic needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No.

Great advice, but too many interruptions

Sadhguru's advice and his perception is just too good. He sees the world and the life around him from a completely different point of view, which is refreshing and in many ways eye opening.

I agree that the book is written by Cheryl, but she gets in the way too much between the listener and Sadhguru. A simple question answer approach would've been perfect.

I also understand that the experience that Cheryl had with Sadhguru changed her life (good for her), but the reader/listener doesn't need the details, which were not really important to the subject at hand.
Just my opinion

Logical view of mysticism

It was wonderful to hear Sadhguru through this book answering mundane to mysterious questions. I am happy that I came across this book.

Best book ever!!

Started out thinking it was going to be like every other book with someone looking for enlightenment, but as this book progresses into a few chapters...Wow! Amazing and uplifting !
What an incredible journey and education of looking at an inside view of a yogi.
Thank you!!
Kim

Waste of time. Get Inner Engineering by Sadhguru.

Cheryl is just here for another book and more cash. She is not valuable at all but instead act more like a parasite onto Sadhguru.
I listened to Inner Engineering: A Yogi's Guide to Joy by Sadhguru himself and this book is just a waste of time and money. You need the insight of an enlightened being and not a seeker. It's like I hold the hand of a blind person and expect him to guide me through traffic.

*Yawn*

I was hoping for a book containing wisdom, it read more like a fan girl swooning over gurus. Very disappointed.

A Must Listen for every human

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's hard for us to understand spiritualism. Primarily because of our logical thinking, our hesitation to believe what we cannot perceive and our already existing thoughts, perceptions and understanding of the world.
Sadhguru helps us break away from all this and see the world the way it really is.

What did you like best about this story?

A beautiful conversation. I hardly felt like I was listening to a book.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Midnights with The Mystic?

This has given me a glimpse of something that is beyond my perception and encourages me to want to experience that.

I deeply appreciate Sadhguru

I really liked the story and Sadhguru`s view on things. He's a wise one.

The performances were a bit wooden but maybe that's because they didn't want to make a big production out of it, which is good.
