Colin woke up, after 30 years of spiritual search and practices, on a seven day silent retreat in 1996. He started writing in 2000 and his books are based on the realizations that occurred then and since, and answers to questions. He has written many articles and poems, based on meditations, contemplations and answers to questions, then collated into books. Each of these is a self contained guide to awakening. The order of writing is: Beyond-A Light-Awakening-Awareness-The Happiness-Freedom-Simplicity-Ripples-Enlightenment..
If the world of nondual spirituality ever seems muddy to you, take a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Colin Drake. I love Colin's work. Jerry Katz owner of www.nonduality.com
