One of America's most original comedic voices delivers a darkly funny, wryly observed, and emotionally raw account of her year of death, cancer, and epiphany. In the span of four months in 2012, Tig Notaro was hospitalized for a debilitating intestinal disease called C. diff, her mother unexpectedly died, she went through a breakup, and then she was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer. Hit with this devastating barrage, Tig took her grief onstage. Days after receiving her cancer diagnosis, she broke new comedic ground, opening an unvarnished set with the words, "Good evening. Hello. I have cancer. How are you? Hi, how are you? Is everybody having a good time? I have cancer." The set went viral instantly and was ultimately released as Tig's sophomore album, Live, which sold 100,000 units in just six weeks and was later nominated for a Grammy. Now the wildly popular star takes stock of that no good, very bad year - a difficult yet astonishing period in which tragedy turned into absurdity and despair transformed into joy. An inspired combination of the deadpan silliness of her comedy and the openhearted vulnerability that has emerged in the wake of that dire time, I'm Just a Person is a moving and often hilarious look at this very brave, very funny woman's journey into the darkness and her thrilling return from it.

Join Michael A. Singer for an expansive exploration of the life-changing insights in his best-selling books. Michael A. Singers spiritual classic The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself gave us a lucid and practical guide to living an awakened life. Now, for those inspired by his books or new to his teachings, The Untethered Soul Lecture Series Collection, Volumes 1-4 brings you into the company of this beloved teacher as he suffuses new illumination into the life-changing insights shared in his written works. The first four volumes of this 11-part series include: Volume 1: Insights on the Untethered Soul "What does it really mean to live a spiritual life? What does it mean to use every single moment of every single second of every single bit of your life to let go of yourself?" asks Michael A. Singer. In Volume 1, Singer discusses how the book, The Untethered Soul, takes you through each stage of the spiritual journey - from the excitement of awakening, to the challenge of deep inner growth, and, finally, to the experience of inner freedom. Volume 2: Freedom from the Mind In Volume 2, Singer considers the many ways an unwatched mind can sabotage your life. When observed and understood, the mind is a powerful resource for creation. However, a mind left to its own devices can cause unchecked pain. Indeed, according to Singer, this is the true source of suffering: being unable to distinguish thoughts of attraction, attachment, and judgment from the truth of the present moment. Volume 3: The Clarity of Witness Consciousness There is a place deep within your being where you are free from the turmoil of thoughts, emotions, and the outer world. This is the seat of witness consciousness, and from here, your spiritual journey will unfold with effortless clarity and grace. In Volume 3, Singer lays out the basic nature of the World, the Mind, the Heart, and You - the consciousness that experiences these things. He then paves a clear path to achieving this transcendent state. Volume 4: Turning Preference into Peace "Once I have a loving partner, I'll be happy...and also a better career...and more money...and spiritual enlightenment...." It seems obvious - happiness comes when we fulfill our needs and preferences, right? Yet, most of us eventually realize that no matter what we achieve, it never satisfies us for long. Why? And what can we do about it? Volume 4 invites us to get to the roots of our suffering: the blockages of our energy flow and the delusions of insufficiency, fear, and false need that they create.

Join Michael A. Singer for an expansive exploration of the life-changing insights in his best-selling books. Michael A. Singer's spiritual classic The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself gave us a lucid and practical guide to living an awakened life. Now, for those inspired by his books or new to his teachings, The Untethered Soul Lecture Series Collection, Volumes 5-8 brings you into the company of this beloved teacher as he suffuses new illumination into the life-changing insights shared in his written works. Volumes 5-8 of this 11-part series include: Volume 5: The Journey Within Isnt it true that the love, peace, and contentment you seek are actually inner experiences? In Volume 5, Singer guides you on a voyage into the depths of your own limitless Self. Inviting you to move beyond dependence on the outer world, Singer suggests that every interaction and relationship in your life can serve to enhance your inner journey. The spiritual path is about choosing Spirit first and then letting all of life assist you in the journey to freedom. Volume 6: Letting Go into Freedom and Fulfillment When was the last time you felt free from the burdens of stress and tension? Is it really possible to live your everyday life in a state of complete well-being? How would you even attain such a state? In Volume 6, Singer shares that the peace we seek is already within us. When we lose ourselves in our thoughts and emotions, we become so fixated on ending our internal struggles that we inadvertently become caught by them. The key is to let go of the entire inner battle and relax into our natural state. Volume 7: Honoring and Respecting Reality "When you let go of your need to control everything in life," teaches Singer, "you are no longer an instrument of your mind and what it creates - worry, fear, burden, and suffering. Instead, you become an instrument in the manifestation of life. Free of mind, you dance with the present." Volume 7 explores: the freedom of non-judgment; surfing the waves of life; how to release unwanted fears and needs; why we want to control reality rather than simply experience it; and more. Volume 8: Taking Charge of Your Inner Growth What is it thats actually keeping you from living fully in every moment? Is it something outside you thats blocking the way? Or is it really an unspoken attachment to attitudes, ideas, and habits that have long since stopped serving you? In Volume 8, Singer shows how the only barriers between you and positive inner change are ultimately illusory. When you recognize that your thoughts and emotions are only temporary inner states and not accurate reflections of reality, Singer asserts that you can finally galvanize true inner growth.

A program that will change your entire perspective on life In 2017, Sounds True launched the first-ever online course with Michael A. Singer, the best-selling author of The Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment. This course has been one of our most well-received - and for good reason. The program features eight profound and inspiring all-new sessions drawn from Singers 50 years as a spiritual teacher (and a highly successful business entrepreneur). Now available on CD or as a digital download, Living from a Place of Surrender brings you the same perspective-shifting, spiritually liberating teaching sessions for letting go of stress and fear and aligning with the flow of life in the moment. Heres what the author has to say about the program: "Dear friends, In case you havent noticed, you have a mental dialogue going on inside your head that never stops. This is the opening sentence of my book, The Untethered Soul. Since its publication in 2007, Ive been inundated with questions about why that inner voice is always talking, why so much of what it says is negative and stressful, and most importantly, how you free yourself from it. In this course, we will put to rest any questions you have about that inner dialogue. Not just about quieting it down - but about how to steadily remove the root cause of its existence. One of the greatest lessons you will learn here is that trying to achieve happiness by "getting what you want" is actually limiting your happiness. You end up struggling with life instead of experiencing it. True happiness comes only when your inner energy is free to flow. That unhampered flow is, indeed, the goal of this course. We will see that the most effective personal growth technique is to use life to remove your inner blockages, not compensate for them. In this course, youll learn about your true relationship to the world unfolding around you and to the thoughts and emotions arising within you. But most importantly, you will come into touch with the real "you" - the indwelling consciousness that is witnessing it all. The intention of this course is to change your entire perspective of life. Every session will challenge you to go beyond yourself. With great love and respect, Michael A. Singer" PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

From the author of the New York Times number-one best seller The Untethered Soul comes the astonishing true-life story about what happens when you just let go. A thriving spiritual community on over 600 acres of pristine forest and meadows in Florida, a cutting-edge software package that transformed the medical-practice management industry, a billion-dollar public company whose achievements are archived in the Smithsonian Institution, a book that became a New York Times best seller and an Oprah favorite, and a massive raid by the FBI that would lead to unfounded accusations by the US government - how could all of this spring from a man who had decided to live alone in the middle of the woods, let go of himself, and embrace a life of solitude? But this man had made a radical decision - one that would unwittingly lead him to both the pinnacle of success and the brink of disaster. Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul, tells the extraordinary story of what happened when, after a deep spiritual awakening, he decided to let go of his personal preferences and simply let life call the shots. As Singer takes you on this great experiment and journey into life's perfection, the events that transpire will both challenge your deepest assumptions about life and inspire you to look at your own life in a radically different way.

"The spiritual journey is about maintaining your seat of awareness regardless of whats going on," explains Singer. "At first, taking this seat is difficult - stick with it! Once youre seated in the Self, you're able to access life's inherent joy and perfection, and you're able to let go of the lower stuff like fear, neediness, and anger."

In Volume 10, Singer demonstrates that in order to comprehend the truth of a situation and act to serve the highest good, you must look past the noisy mind and its habitual reactions. When you connect with who you truly are - the indwelling consciousness - you will naturally interact with life from a place of lucidity, right action, and service. Volume 11: The Unlimited Energy of the Self How is your energy doing right now? Is it going up? Going down? Stuck? "Your natural state is one of continually upwelling energy - joy, love, creativity, awe - the highest of highs," explains Singer. "Your task is not to create this state, but to stop doing the things you're doing to block it." Volume 11 brings you his inspired guidance for making this life-changing shift.
