Description

Why am I here? Do I really know anything? What does it all mean? These are questions we all ask ourselves at some point in our lives. Mindfulness & The Big Questions offers an enlightening approach to these universal existential conundrums, and explores how mindfulness can reveal hidden solutions to life’s mysteries.

Ben Irvine weaves together philosophy and mindfulness to reveal how we can become wiser and happier simply by paying attention to everyday life.

Through personal anecdote and practical meditative insights, he illustrates how the feeling of existential angst can be turned into a sense of wonder and opportunity. We can learn to embrace life’s uncertainties through the transformational practice of mindfulness meditation, through journeying back to the here and now.
