THE TIME-HONOURED INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER, UPDATED AND WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION AND AFTERWORD, CELEBRATING THIRTY YEARS OF INFLUENCING THE WAY WE LIVE

For the past three decades, Wherever You Go, There You Are has helped catalyse the explosion of interest in mindfulness around the world. While mindfulness is considered the heart of Buddhist meditation, its essence is universal and of deep practical benefit, potentially to all.

In essence, mindfulness is about embodied wakefulness. Our minds are such that we are often more asleep than awake to the unique beauty and possibilities of each present moment. While it is in the nature of all our minds to default to autopilot and lose touch with the only time we actually have to live – to feel, to grow, to love, to learn, to give shape to things, to heal – our mind also holds the innate capacity to awaken to each moment.

This book gives you a variety of ways to experiment with not missing your moments and take maximal advantage of them by tending what most needs tending to now. Given the myriad mega-challenges humanity and planet Earth are facing at this time, Wherever You Go, There You Are can provide both a personal refuge for meaning – making, healing and transformation, as well as a locus for collaborating with others to heal the suffering of the world.
