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 profound "awareness of awareness"-an effortless and panoramic state of fully being at our deepest levels. 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-no formal sitting practice required. This concise and friendly guide takes us through 73 "mini-chapters" 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.

Professional reviews

"Norah Tocci narrates in the calm and deliberate cadence of a seasoned meditation teacher. This exciting new work from the director of Mindfulness Education at UCLA expands the secular mindfulness meditation field to include a wide spectrum of natural awareness practices. The collection of essay-style mini-chapters seeks to cultivate an open awareness that resembles the timeless, effortless wonder of childhood. By keeping a brisk pace, Tocci's performance works as well for the autobiographical material as the guided meditation sessions. Personal stories about teaching and explanations of techniques are cleverly balanced with dozens of "glimpse practices"--in-the-moment questions designed to ignite awareness. The listener can immediately sink deeply into the audiobook's many guided-awareness practices. J.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
