Summary
"This groundbreaking book from ... bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, presents a life-changing method for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in your life: the Wheel of Awareness. A meditation practice that draws on his decades exploring the intersection between neuroscience and the nature of consciousness as well as his experience teaching the practice to thousands of students around the world, the Wheel will enable you to harness the power of awareness in your day-to-day life. An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation's effectiveness, this book reveals how the Wheel and other mindfulness practices hone our ability to focus, open our awareness, and help us to practice kind intention toward ourselves and those around us. According to Siegel, one secret behind meditation's effectiveness lies in the very structure of our brains, as evidenced by the powerful principle 'Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.' Research reveals how the more we develop our practice, the more healthy and nimble our brains become in navigating the challenges that life brings our way. Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or you are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to be more present in each moment as well as more energized and emotionally resilient in your life."--Dust jacket
