Banyen's Description: 

Do you recall, as a child, being enthralled by a drifting cloud, the babbling of a stream, the wandering of a ladybug? If so, then you've already had a taste of natural awareness. Known and revered in many contemplative traditions, natural awareness transcends even these wondrous childhood moments. It has been described as “a way of knowing and a state of being wherein our focus is on the awareness itself rather than on the things we are aware of. It is generally relaxed, effortless, and spacious.” 

Created for those new to meditation and long-time meditators alike, The Little Book of Being shows us how to discover this free-flowing and expansive side of mindfulness—with no formal sitting practice required. This concise and friendly guide takes us through 73 “mini-chapters” (little glimpses) that explain natural awareness and help us experience it via simple and enjoyable explorations to bring welcome moments of peace, connection, and spaciousness to our often distracted and stressful lives.

Natural awareness can feel like your mind is completely aware and undistracted without you doing anything in particular to make yourself aware… You feel a sense of contentment not connected to external conditions… Your mind feels at rest.

“Breaking new ground, this wise and elegant book is a wonderful guide to the important next stage of mindfulness practice: natural awareness.” —Loch Kelly, author of Shift into Freedom
