Zero attachment here - Wolinsky is uncompromising and true.

After initially looking into the shocking antics of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, I decided that there had to be other ways to know the Self. Wolinsky changed that for me. It was finally when I read the difficult (for me) YOU ARE NOT, by Wolinski, and then again a couple more times with Jean Dunn's PRIOR TO CONSCIOUSNES alongside, that I decided Nisargadatta Maharaj was quite the saint. Wolinski is a direct and living link to Maharaj and is one who understands from an awakened vantage. His depth is amazing and, as he writes and lectures, he loops around and through modern understanding as well as Adi Shankara, Buddha, Nagarjuna with ease and clarity. He points out the several stages of looking for and finally knowing, awakening and deconstructing the I AM. His notion of the One Substance is clear and then he deconstructs even that, just incase you have become attached to it also. Wolinsky is genuine and accessible. He has been one of just a few credible teachers for me.

He introduced me to Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

I am thankful to Him. Firstly I read his book on Quantum Psychology and get shocked at that moment. When he mentioned Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, then I just curious to find I AM THAT and I get double shocked. An awesome dialogue!

Thank you Mr Wolinski, you are still one of my guru.

Sincerely, Dhani

I owe a debt of gratitude to Stephen because his Guided Meditations saved me from dropping meditation completely, this after seventeen years of having gone from one technique/style to another(i.e., the Dzogchen open eye technique). I was disenchanted to the extent of wanting to just hang it all up but when I saw a video of his experiences with Maharaj on You Tube, I was intrigued enough to invest in the meditation CD. The results were instantaneous. I don't think I felt such an overwhelming self confidence in any of my prior practices and just KNEW this would be the technique I would follow, even though that experience was perhaps a couple weeks long. This led eventually to the discovery of a local Guru(Edji) also profiled here on this site and that confirmed for me the value in the practice of the "I AM"(he too had "evolved" from long term Zen practice to the "I AM" and has never ceased to extol its value on his site).
