The 99th Monkey by Eliezer Sobel (ebook)

the 99th monkey sobel eliezer

No skewering of false shamans here. Though Sobel is a skilled writer and the book is quite funny in places, my enjoyment of it was tempered by certain stylistic choices. I do pray a bit, but in the end I utterly fail to get enlightened. In those years between, I published many, many non-fiction articles, and several non-fiction books. If money was no object, what would be the first thing you would invest in to promote your book? Uh, the central character would be me, this is a memoir. You can visit Eliezer's tour stops at in August! This was a fun read. Serving as a human guinea pig for many of the most popular cutting-edge New Age and spiritual experiments, Sobel recounts his intercontinental adventures in India, Israel, Brazil and Haiti.

He lives in Richmond, Va. From encounters with enlightened beings, saints and madmen, to ingesting a powerful shamantic brew in the forests of Brazil at all-night ceremonies; from 40-days alone on a mountaintop, to 60 hours in hotel ballrooms at crash courses in consciousness; from the ashrams and gurus of India to the rebbes in Jerusalem and a ten-day Zen retreat at Auschwitz, there were very few extremes to which Sobel did not go in his life-long quest for self-realization. He was also the editor in chief of The New Sun magazine in the late 1970s, the publisher of Wild Heart Journal, and his articles, short stories, and poetry have appeared in the Village Voice, Yoga Journal, Tikkun, Quest, New Age Journal, and many others. I heard that Judas got a doggie bag. Would you like to tell my readers where they can find you on the web and how everyone can buy your book? Though he began his journey with a profound experience during the est training and continued to have numerous peak experiences along the way, he claims that none of them stuck, and he is no more enlightened now than he was when he began.

The 99th Monkey: A Spiritual Journalist's Misadventures with Gurus, Messiahs, Sex, Psychedelics, and Other Consciousness

Only flag comments that clearly need our attention. Serving as a human guinea pig for many of the most popular cutting-edge, New Age, human-potential, and spiritual experiments, Eliezer Sobel recounts intercontinental adventures in India, Israel, Brazil, and Haiti. Professor Offit was very enthusiastic about my work and said he would like to introduce me to an agent. He successfully brings home a similar message to Tolle without any heavy language or mind-blowing sentence structure, and introduces each of his would-be gurus with a respect that remains even as their human foibles are revealed. Upon finishing the book, however, I was left with the impression that we have come to different conclusions about that path; Sobel appears to think he failed to get the spiritual Grand Prize, whereas I am pretty thoroughly convinced that prize never existed to begin with. Actually, I am notoriously inconsistent. If you've ever indulged in the new age, looked for enlightenment in whatever form that took, this is the guy who climbed its peak as far as he could, questioning it as he went, but ever ready to again try something odd for a change of heart chakra--it didn't really happen, then again it most likely did.

In every one of these essays there's enough material for a novel or two. You can tell Eliezer is a little crazy and traumatized and it seeked healing of this coming at best to a sort of accpetance that he wouldn't be enlightened and that existential angst i Hillarous.

Eliezer Sobel (Author of The 99th Monkey)

Are you a morning writer or a night writer? Such a relief to see, yet again, the simplicity of just being, even when the journey is full the craving for experiences. Sobel lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife, Shari Cordon, and three cats: Squarcialupi, Peanut and Plum. It looks like big fun. In every one of these essays there's enough material for a novel or two. I was intrigued when I first heard about it for two reasons: first, it was supposed to be funny, which is a surprisingly rare quality in New Age literature, and second, because I've spent the last year and a half working on my own comic memoir of the same topic. There is no question Sobel is well-qualified to write on this subject. I am discarding the manuscript here.

From Primal Therapy to the Dalai Lama, this perceptively witty analysis includes brushes with cults, wild experiments with sex and psychedelics, and encounters with visionary gurus and contemporary madmen. Simply, I was engrossed in Sobel's journey and I found myself rooting for him, and laughing with him, and really hoping for whatever it was he was looking for.

A witty analysis including brushes with cults, wild experiments with sex and drugs, and encounters with visionary madmen. The only content we will consider removing is spam, slanderous attacks on other members, or extremely offensive content eg. So the book is essentially a history of my resistance to self-transformation, thus gumming up the works for everyone else. But I would have enjoyed this book more if there was a more direct and focused narrative thread.
