To be released August 21, 2018. Pre-order Now!

 
This groundbreaking new book from New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., introduces readers to his pioneering, science-based meditation practice.
 
Aware provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing 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 power of the principle "Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows." Siegel reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice to focus attention, open awareness, and cultivate kind intention can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in your life. 
 
Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focused and present, as well as more energized and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.
 
 

Praise:

“Dr. Dan Siegel has an extraordinary gift: to describe patterns and make accessible in a powerful way the insights and practices that are fundamental to well-being and awakening. In his book AWARE, we are introduced to the power of presence. Using science and psychology, he opens for us his "wheel of awareness," a way of perceiving and working with the mind that is both practical and liberating.” 
 
—Joan Halifax, PhD, Abbot, Upaya Zen Center
 
“Dan is a brilliant integrator and Aware is a visionary blend of neuroscience, physics and cutting edge  psychology combined with creative approaches to mindfulness and compassion. The practice of the Wheel brings together many skillful and wise elements of meditation, all rolled  into one.”
 
—Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart
 
 
“We know so much about what’s outside in the Cosmos, billions of light years away but very little about what’s going on inside our heads right now. We know about dark matter but not so much about grey matter, which I would think, matters most. Daniel Siegel finally gives us insight into who we are, how we work and most important of all how to retrain and change our minds. For me, almost every line is an ‘aha’ moment. At long last, someone nails what it is to have a healthy mind and if you don’t have one, how to get one.”
