"This is a wonderful book, brilliantly, wittily, and lucidly reasoned. It was compelling to me from beginning to end." -- - Red Hawk (aka Robert Moore) author of Self-Remembering and Self-Observation

 "Campion’s narrative voice assumes the role of your most cherished confidante, your guide to the elusive world of the nondual perspective. “Where did the hours go?” you may well ask yourself, as the dawn breaks after a sleepless night. Such is the compelling draw of this remarkable book." -- Jerry Katz, founder and host, Nonduality.com
 

"Blindspot exposes the unseen distinctions that exist among the ways that people seek the Big Answers to the questions posed by life, the universe, and everything. Campion strips away our blinders with a playful humor." -- Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo, filmmakers and founders of the Science and Nonduality (SAND) global community

 Blindspot exposes the unseen distinctions that exist among the ways that people seek the Big Answers to the questions posed by life, the universe, and everything. When most people speak about God or Truth or the Divine, Campion asserts, they aren’t actually talking about anything divine or godly at all--whether they are believers, unbelievers or undecided. Whatever their posture toward these matters, they betray an almost universal “unseeingness” about what the entire spiritual enterprise is actually about—its rules, codes, even its final aim. They are blind to what the great sages of the world’s religious and philosophical traditions have pointed to forever—which also happen to converge with the discoveries of contemporary science as it grapples with the nature of consciousness.

The essence of these convergences is often misunderstood by both the public and the scientists themselves. Such confusions constitute a hornet’s nest that any wise person would avoid addressing at all costs; but, as this book demonstrates, the author throws that caution to the wind.

At its core, this book is about the blind spot that prevents us from knowing who we are. In revealing this obliviousness, the author dives into the perspective that is commonly known as “nonduality,” the principle that lies at the core of all world wisdom traditions, including the scientific ones. The reasons for what Campion has dubbed “Blindspot” may be understandable, yet as he shows in brilliant, and often humorous, detail, its costs to the individual, to humanity in general, to the planet as a whole, are high, indeed. In a word, confusion. In another word, suffering.

Although there are numerous books available today about nonduality, only Blindspot addresses the critical distinctions that exist between the conventional approaches to spirituality—indeed, to life itself—and the nondual approaches. Plus, how these same distinctions also play out in the sciences.

Moss Campion is a qualified commentator, having immersed himself in the mystery of consciousness all his life, both in the context of his personal circumstances and also in his work with patients in the hospital setting. His many teachers have included Lee Lozowick, Douglas Harding, Adyashanti, Rupert Spira, Wayne Liquorman, Devaji, Christopher Wallis, A.H. Almaas, Saniel Bonder, Steven Harrison, Scott Kiloby, Jed McKenna, Eckhart Tolle, Adi Da, TCIM, J. Krishnamurti, and numerous plant medicines.


BIOGRAPHY

Growing up in Portland, Maine, Moss Campion would eagerly await the arrival of Halloween all year long, already demonstrating a strong interest in the mystical side of life. Even as he later worked in fields as varied as music, skiing, and journalism, he continued his involvement with spiritual teachings, studying with a number of esteemed teachers and mentors. His many years of employment as a registered nurse also gave him wide exposure to the grittier aspects of life as they are experienced by folks in the ordinary world; and this has greatly informed his philosophical understandings.
