From a very young age, Joey Lott experienced intensifying anxiety. For several decades, he lived with restrictive eating disorders, obsessions, compulsions, and an inescapable fear. By the time he was 30 years old, he was physically sick, emotionally volatile, and mentally obsessed with keeping any and all unwanted thoughts and experiences at bay. At this time, Lott was living on a futon mattress in a tiny cabin in the woods. He was so sick that he could barely move. He was deeply depressed and hopeless. All of this, despite doing all the "right" things, such as years of meditation, yoga, various "perfect" diets, clean air and pure water.
Just when things were at their most dire, a crack appeared in the conceptual world that had formerly been mistaken for reality. By peering into this crack to see underneath all of the assumptions that had been unquestioned up to that moment, Lott began a great undoing. The revelation of this undoing is that reality is utterly simple, ever-present, seamless, and indivisible.
Lott's books provide a glimpse into the seamless, simple, and joyous nature of reality, offering a glimpse through the crack in conceptual worlds. Whether writing about the ultimate non-dual nature of reality, eating disorders, stress, disease, or any other subject, he offers the invitation to look at things differently. He challenges us to leave behind the old, out-grown, painful limitations we have used to bind ourselves in suffering, and then, he welcomes you home to the effortless simplicity of yourself as you are.
