ABOUT THE COURSE
Mindfulness in Action: Making Friends with Yourself through Meditation and Everyday Awareness is, as the title suggests, a book about mindfulness and its application in the context of our whole life. The book focuses on the practice of meditation as a tool for developing mindfulness and explores how mindfulness and awareness influence our everyday life. It is a book for people who want to explore mindfulness through the practice of meditation and also apply meditative insight in their lives. It includes instructions for the practice of meditation, as well as an in-depth look into the principles of mindfulness and awareness.
The technique of meditation that is offered here is unique but closely related to other approaches to mindfulness meditation. It is a form of meditation that stresses openness and engagement with our world. This technique for mindfulness meditation is compatible with other approaches in that it emphasizes a sense of presence, simplicity, and the development of peace. It is also about developing insight and clear seeing in one’s practice and daily life. The author invites people to try his approach, but the insights offered in this book apply to whatever approach to mindfulness meditation you employ.
