Publisher's Synopsis
A simple and gently-written book, it is about Mindfulness - an ancient and accessible meditation form, with Buddhist origins. The basis of the practice is, Stephen says, to directly participate in each moment as it occurs, with as much awareness and understanding as possible. A Gradual Awakening has been important to thousands of people as a clear, basic guide to meditation, covering both the method itself and the issues arising from it. It has become a standard teaching text (along with Stephen's bestselling title, Who Dies?) in countless meditation centres and educational establishments, including medical schools.


"A simply and gently written book by a man who shares his own personal experiences and insights into how meditation can work and how we can become aware of ourselves."     ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
