Aware - The Science and Practice of Presence

Regular price $30.00

This groundbreaking new book from New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, introduces readers to his pioneering, science-based meditation practice.

Aware provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one's day-to-day life.

An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation's effectiveness, this book teaches readers how to harness the power of the principle 'Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.' Siegel reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice to focus attention, open awareness, and cultivate kind intention can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in your life.

Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focussed and present, as well as more energised and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.

'This is a Dan Siegel masterpiece. He integrates decades of science and wisdom about the nature of our mind and optimal wellbeing into an easy to read personal journey. At the cornerstone is "The Wheel of Awareness," a simple yet profound visual map of the mind, which enables people, including children, to experience of presence, self knowledge, and compassion. Aware will awaken and enrich your life immeasurably!'

The Wheel of Awareness provides a comprehensive, science-based way to develop the focused attention, open awareness, and kind intention that research reveals can help bring health and resilience into your life.'
