Austin MacAuley | Published : 2018


This book weaves the threads of everyday life and those moments where one is at one's insightful and creative best. It explores the capacity for both deep reflection and alert, 'in the moment', sensory engagement. It underscores the possibility for becoming aware of and challenging the behavioural patterns developed over time that can focus and sometimes limit our lives. For those who have at heart a desire to find value in everyday life, and discover latent potentials and creative capacities this book offers both useful examples and some simple challenges, forged from practical experience.
