This pioneering new book from bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing, science-based tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one's day-to-day life.
An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation's effectiveness, this book teaches readers how to harness the principle `Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows.' Aware reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress.
Whether you have never meditated before or are an experienced practitioner, this is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become stronger and calmer in the face of the everyday challenges life throws your way.
