Description

Mindfulness is a lifelong exercise and the older we get the more appreciative we can become of the practice. Galileo & The Art of Ageing Mindfully reveals how the father of modern science introduced a new era in our mindful understanding of ourselves and our place in the universe. Adam Ford turns his telescope towards the stars to reveal a natural fusion of science and spirituality and to offer his own perspective on ageing. Questions of deep time and existence, and spiritual insights are shared alongside wise notes to his grandchildren. Add in a constellation of meditative insights, and Adam proves how our existential journey with ageing is the natural opportunity to experience the true benefits of mindfulness.
