Intimately and without jargon, How to Wake Up: A Buddhist-Inspired Guide to Navigating Joy and Sorrow, describes the path to peace amid all of life's ups and downs. Using step by step instructions, the author illustrates how to be fully present in the moment without clinging to joy or resisting sorrow. This opens the door to a kind of wellness that goes beyond circumstances.
Actively engaging life as it is in this fashion holds the potential for awakening to a peace and well-being that are not dependent on whether a particular experience is joyful or sorrowful. This is a practical audiobook, containing dozens of exercises and practices, all of which are illustrated with easy-to-relate to personal stories from the author's experience.

I have never read the print version, but I love the message in this book which is the same regardless. I personally prefer audio books to reading.
She was a great choice for this audio. Very calming and lovely voice . If the narrator is not right I have difficulty listening to the audio - I'm so pleased she was such a great match.
Initially I listened to it in a couple of sittings and then listened to smaller chunks with time between to let the message sink in.
I loved this audio. The author really put her heart into it. I loved her honesty, the way she explains things , the exercises, the examples, everything. Through this book she has given me the tools and the understanding to help improve my life. It is a book I will return to again and again.
Loved this book. A lot of very practical advice to lead a more peaceful life.
To keep practicing mindfulness.
Ajan Brahams book, Open the door to your heart - another Buddhist teaching book.
No. Good narration, comes off a little sleepy sounding at first but then becomes calming
What 'Living in the now' meant. I finally got it and it was this book that brought me there.
Lovely book, great for listening whilst in traffic, very calming. Although that is not being very mindful :-)
