Amoda Maa Jeevan is a contemporary spiritual teacher and author. In 2002, after many years of spiritual seeking, meditation, and immersion in psychospiritual practices, an experience of the dark night of the soul led to a profound inner awakening. After a long period of integration, in 2012, she started speaking from silence in small gatherings in the UK. Today, she offers meetings and retreats to a growing global audience. Amoda Maa is be oming known as a unique voice, attracting spiritual seekers from the non-dual community, as well as more diverse seekers such as students of A Course in Miracles and New Thought. She has been a guest on Conscious TV and Buddha at the Gas Pump, and is also a regular speaker at the SAND (Science and Nonduality) Conference and the Open Circle Center in the United States. Amoda Maa's background in psychology and her experience for many years as a transformational group facilitator and emotional/spiritual counselor, as well as her personal journey through suffering, have led to an innate wisdom rooted in direct experience and a conviction of clarity. Her teaching today emanates the untamable fragrance of freedom while radically embracing the totality of the human experience. Amoda Maa is the author of two books, How to Find God in Everything (Watkins, 2008; released as a revised edition, Radical Awakening, in March 2016) and Change Your Life, Change Your World (Watkins, 2012), both of which arose out of a mystical vision around the same time as her awakening. In this vision, she was shown the key to humanity's suffering and the potential for the birth of a new consciousness and a new world. While the expression of her writing and speaking since then has evolved in both depth and breadth, this vision has been the catalyst for her work. Embodied Enlightenment is based on both her vision for humanity as well as the conversations that arise at the cutting edge of non-duality in her meetings with people from all around the world.

Donald Miller grew up in Houston, Texas, in the shadow of the Astrodome. He left Houston at 21 in a Volkswagen van and travelled through America stopping in Portland, Oregon where he audited classes at Reed College, then selected as the most godless campus in the country. His books Through Painted Deserts and the New York Times bestselling Blue Like Jazz came out of his travels, and Don followed those up with Searching for God Knows What. Then after thirty years of no interaction with his father, Don found his biological Dad and wrote about it in a book called FATHER FICTION. About that time, he started The Mentoring Project, an organization that seeks to inspire and equip faith communities to mentor fatherless boys. Don's work with The Mentoring Project led the Obama administration to invite him onto the Presidential Task Force on Fatherhood and Healthy Families. Last year, along with the Ride:Well Team, Don rode his bicycle across America in an effort to raise money to drill wells in Sub-Saharan Africa. This experience provided material for his newest book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (also a New York Times bestseller). Donald Miller is a sought-after speaker. He has appeared at such diverse events as The Democratic National Convention and the Veritas Forum at Harvard. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his dog Lucy.
