Author Biography

Richard L. Haight is the bestselling author of The Unbound Soul, named "One of the best consciousness books of all time" by BookAuthority. Haight is an instructor of meditation, healing and martial arts. As a young man, he moved to Japan, where he spent 15 years training in the ancient arts. Haight is one of a small handful of foreigners to have earned masters licenses in both martial and therapy traditions in Japan.

During his life, a series of profound visions guided him to the realization of the Oneness of which the ancient spiritual sages often spoke. Guided by mystical visions, Haight developed a unique approach to the martial, meditation, and healing arts that he inherited, which transforms those arts into spiritual paths free of dogma and tradition.

Through his books, his meditation, and martial arts seminars, Haight is spreading a practical method of spiritual awakening that is free of all constraints. Richard now lives and teaches in Oregon, U.S.A.

Reviewed by Renee Guill for Readers' Favorite

The Unbound Soul: A Visionary Guide to Spiritual Transformation and Enlightenment by Richard L. Haight is a spiritual self-help book. It’s Richard L. Haight’s memoir as he tells his stories of how he found enlightenment. He has traveled to the Amazon and Tokyo, just to name a couple of places where he found his path. He gives us some meditation techniques and tells us how they are to be used. He uses different religions to explain how he found his 'is'ness, as he calls it. He also explains how the mind and body work together to find the meaning of life, so to speak. Richard L. Haight even talks about the differences between Soul and Spirit to help guide you.

I thought Richard L. Haight’s The Unbound Soul covers a fascinating topic. I should put in a warning that he does talk about suicide and has a couple of strong language words in it, so if that bothers you, you might not like it. I loved how he told his stories. The Amazon one was my favorite; not sure I would have had that courage. The way he uses different religions like Christianity and Buddhism was a nice touch. I should warn you that you need to have a pretty open mind to read this; some of it may seem far fetched. But Richard L. Haight gives accurate accounts in great detail and gives reasons behind it. I am going to try his meditation techniques; I found them to be refreshing, compared to the usual ones. If you are soul-searching like I am, then I would definitely recommend this book; you might even have a couple of 'a-ha' moments like I did.


Thoroughly enjoyed reading & putting into practice many of his Rex’s.
