Stuart Brody J.D., senior scholar of State University of New York
“Gabriel Cousens achieves a rare feat here: articulating our loftiest spiritual aspirations yet offering a rich and versatile narrative of personal experience to show how to achieve it. Avoiding platitudes and pandering, he weaves the immensely varied spiritual influences of his life into a rich tapestry of insight that guides us on the path to liberation. He shows how the trajectory of spiritual evolution is both urgent and difficult; one cannot just suddenly ‘get it’ without spiritual work. This book—a splendid unfolding—shows how.”
Marcela Benson, author of Love, Peace & Vegetables
“Into The Nothing invites us into the possibility of seeing our lives as a teaching. In his autobiography, Gabriel Cousens intimately shares his life experience, spiritual awakening, and the integration of the great mystery into a life of selfless service—that of a liberated teacher and guide. Read his words, and sense into the space between the printed letters, and experience the direct teaching from a liberated master.”
Rabbi Gershon Winkler, PhD, Author of Magic of the Ordinary:
Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism
“Into the Nothing is far more than an intriguing autobiography. It is as much an inspirational guide to meaningfully negotiating the hairpin curves along our sometimes arduous life journey. Gabriel’s personal story shows us how liberation of the spirit is not to be discovered beyond ourselves but deeply within ourselves, veiled by a transparent film of illusion that reveals our possibilities while at the same time impeding them. The pathway to liberation lies beyond the veil, but the portal to it is embedded deep with us, waiting for our initiation. Life’s most rewarding qualities, the author demonstrates in this monumental sharing, is not to be found in the promises of the Something but in the mystery of the Nothing. After all, is that not where the Something came from, to begin with? Into the Nothing is then a fascinating down-to-earth story of a beyond-the-earth journey of one man’s grafting of both realms in his emergence as a liberated and enlightened master. An uplifting read for a downtrodden era.”
Shanti Cousens, MA, Aromatherapist
"Into the Nothing is beyond ordinary. It describes a depth of spiritual awareness that is rarely spoken about and less rarely lived at the level Gabriel is living life. This jewel of a book reveals the spiritual consciousness needed for us to shift into the new paradigm of expanded consciousness and new spirituality.”
Catia Simionato, head of Tree of Life Brazil
“I’ve been close to Dr. Gabriel Cousens for over a decade and his paradoxical way of being, at the same time wild and gentle, a mystic and a scientist, driven by his heart and so down to earth, has always intrigued me. His spiritual autobiography unveils the path that made the man, it shows how life in its infinite wisdom leads us into the depth of ourselves, the unknown, the nothing. For me, it’s a true model of a way of living that guides into Liberation.”
