In Fully Present, leading mindfulness researchers and educators Dr. Sue Smalley and Diana Winston provide an all-in-one guide for anyone interested in bringing mindfulness to daily life as a means of enhancing well-being. Fully Present provides both a scientific explanation for how mindfulness positively and powerfully affects the brain and the body as well as practical guidance to develop both a practice and mindfulness in daily living, not only through meditation but also during daily experiences, such as waiting in line at the supermarket, exercising, or facing difficult news.
Do you recall, as a child, being enthralled by a drifting cloud, a rain-soaked leaf, a wandering ladybug? Or suddenly having a sense of timelessness, contentment, and ease? If so, then you've already had a taste of natural awareness.
Known and revered in many traditions as a complement to focused mindfulness training, natural awareness transcends even these wondrous childhood moments. Some describe it as a profound “awareness of awareness”—an effortless, boundless state of resting in the depth of our being.
For those new to meditation and experienced meditators alike, these 72 “mini-chapters” guide you on an in-depth odyssey into natural awareness, illuminated by many simple and enjoyable insights and exercises.
The Little Book of Being invites you to explore: The spectrum of awareness practices, from focused mindfulness to flexible mindfulness to natural awareness.

GLIMPSES OF BEING
A Training Course in Expanding Mindful Awareness
An immersive audio course for exploring the full spectrum of mindfulness—from focused to natural awareness.
Many of us have tried mindfulness meditation: where we concentrate closely on the breath or other object of attention. "But awareness spans a much wider domain," teaches Diana Winston.
In contrast to effortful and focused practice lies natural awareness—a state of peace, connection, and ease. If you've ever been absorbed in the flow of a sport, a walk in nature, or an artistic activity, then you've had a taste of this effortless and expansive experience.
With Glimpses of Being, this pioneering meditation teacher invites us to explore the full landscape of presence, with a special emphasis on natural awareness.
For beginners, seasoned practitioners, and even those who've struggled with conventional mindfulness meditation, these supportive sessions open the way to illuminating new realms of being—and show us how to create our own foundation for lifelong discovery, enjoyment, and transformation.
