Eliminate the negative stories in your head in this self-help book


One of our greatest aspirations is to live a life of joy, peace, and ease. Yet all too often misery, depression, and anxiety can rob us of this goal. Why are these invisible disabilities so prevalent in our daily life?

Namita Gandhi and Ann Schauber take us on a journey to a clearer understanding of this human condition. We are invited to undertake the journey of Awarefulness – the quality of being fully aware, not just of our outward surroundings, but also of our inner landscape of thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.

Through Awarefulness we come to an understanding of how our mind works, both as a hindrance and as a helpful tool to joyful living. This book offers a proven practice rooted both in ancient wisdom traditions and in the cutting-edge science of brain plasticity. As we undertake this journey to Awarefulness, we will be supported in:

  • becoming aware of the cause of our unhappiness in life;
  • learning how to unpack and clear away unwanted thoughts, feelings and beliefs; and
  • learning ways to practice joyful living.

Rich in personal stories, reflection questions, and meditation practices, Awarefulness is both a self-help guide and a workbook we can refer to again and again. The book gently guides us on a journey of inquiry undertaken by the authors themselves and people they have worked with over the years, culminating in deeper wisdom and a more joyful life.
