The body is of course integral to meditation, but there are only a few books that focus this specifically on the body and the meditative experience. Awake Where You Are addresses that need, and additionally integrates psychological concepts, which provides a more familiar entry point for people less familiar with Buddhism. “Embodied awareness is the way back home—intimacy with where and how we are right now, with what is happening and how we are meeting it. My intention is to lead you into the heart of your life. Inside your body, where everything happens—within a quality of listening rather than knowledge, of feeling rather than reaction. This meditative practice is radically transformative.” —Martin Aylward Pulled around by desires and distractions, we’re so easily disconnected from ourselves. Life is happening right in front of us, and within us—but still, we manage to miss so much of it. Awake Where You Are provides the antidote, inviting us to go deep into our own bodies, to inhabit our sensory experience carefully; to learn the art of living from the inside out, and in the process to find ease, clarity, and an authentic, unshakeable freedom. The practices in the book literally bring us back into our skin, where we can reconnect with a more rich, meaningful, and peaceful life. Aylward writes with sophisticated subtlety, as well as the heart-opening simplicity and clarity born of deep experience. And this book is more than a meditation guide—it’s a guide to living an embodied life. You’ll learn about the following areas and practices: - Understanding and liberating our primal human drives. Aylward explains how the three primary drives—survival, sexual, and social—function within us, and how we can engage their energy to explore, understand, and liberate them. - Integrating psychological understanding with meditative practice. Awake Where You Are goes beyond the broad brushstrokes of Buddhist psychology, inviting the reader into an exploration of their own particular psychological history and conditioning. - Investigating the nuances of love. Readers will learn to see the classical Buddhist heart qualities, or brahmaviharas (loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy, and equanimity) as distinct flavors of love, and as the natural resting places of a free heart. “Martin is a marvelous teacher and offers us the refreshing wisdom of an embodied life.” —Jack Kornfield, author of No Time Like the Present

Now That You Are Awake, the sequel to Living Your Life in Joy, is the second book in a three-part series. It is an extension, as well as an expansion, of material introduced in Living Your Life in Joy. Throughout the second book, we shall develop a more comprehensive understanding of not only the process of awakening but also the practical application of what we have learned to all aspects of our daily lives as we journey the path to Oneness. Now That You Are Awake explores, in detail, what it means to be spiritually awake, how we know that we are awake, and how our lives are changed by our awakening. We further expand upon the subject of spiritual awakening as we discuss what it means to view the world through spiritual eyes, how we become a reflection in the mirror of a world within, and who we are as spiritual beings created in the image and likeness of God. Through our discussions, we come to understand, in a heightened and more expansive manner, who we are, why we are, and what we came here to do. We discuss, in depth, the nature, attributes, and the Oneness of the Divine as the One Energy, One Love, One Life. We discover our unlimited potential as individual expressions of the One, in physical form, and how we can awaken to develop and expand our ability to utilize Universal Life Force Energy for the health and well-being of ourselves and others. As we spiritually mature, we come to understand the advanced aspects of spiritual expression that we awaken to. They are referred to throughout our discussions as “feeling” and “knowing.” We discuss in depth how these can be important forms of inspiration and guidance. In the final chapter, we follow two individuals—one spiritually awake, the other spiritually asleep—as they go through one day in their respective lives to contrast the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors each expresses as they respond to the same circumstances and events that occur during the day. By comparing each one’s experience, as perceived and expressed through the ego or the spirit, we may not only summarize the basic understanding we have gained from the topics we discuss in each chapter of the book, but also provide a situation where we can evaluate how we would have responded ourselves to each of the events that take place throughout the course of the day. From this, we may assess each aspect of our own spiritual growth as we continue our journey upon the path to Oneness. At the end of the book, there is a special request for those of you who would be willing to share your awakening story with those who are about to awaken, have just awakened, or who are awake and journeying the path to Oneness. We are planning a series of books, perhaps three in all, with the exclusive theme of spiritual awakening. The purpose of the series is to provide readers with knowledge gained from the firsthand experiences of others who have awakened to help them to understand what is happening to them as they begin to awaken and to let them know that they are not alone. As such, those who choose to awaken would have a compendium, or a guide—namely, the experiences of those who have gone before them—to help them along the way. Now That You Are Awake is a detailed and comprehensive volume that explores the next level of spiritual awareness, consciousness, and knowledge we are awakening to as we continue to spiritually mature.

This book invites us to go inward and descend into our bodies. It teaches us to inhabit our sensory experience carefully—and literally brings us back "into our skin." Aylward writes with sophisticated subtlety as well as the heart-opening simplicity and clarity born of deep experience. This book is the first English-language offering from a major new voice in contemporary Buddhism.
