A practical guide to experiencing natural awareness. Do you recall, as a child, being enthralled by a drifting cloud, a rain-soaked leaf, a wandering ladybug? Or suddenly having a sense of timelessness, contentment, and ease? If so, then you've already had a taste of natural awareness.

Known and revered in many traditions as a complement to focused mindfulness training, natural awareness transcends even these wondrous childhood moments. Some describe it as a profound "awareness of awareness".

For those new to meditation and experienced meditators alike, these 72 "mini-chapters" guide you on an in-depth odyssey into natural awareness, illuminated by many simple and enjoyable insights and exercises. The Little Book of Being invites you to explore:

  • Spectrum of awareness practices, from focused mindfulness to flexible mindfulness to natural awareness
  • How classical mindfulness and effortless natural awareness enrich and shape each other, and how to practice both
  • Three ways to move into natural awareness - relaxing effort, broadening awareness, and dropping objects
  • "glimpse practices" to spark natural awareness anytime, in just a few moments
  • How to bring this way of "simply being" into your daily life, into your connection with others, and into the world
