Description

New York Times best seller

This groundbreaking new book from New York Times best-selling author Daniel J. Siegel, MD, introduces listeners to his pioneering, science-based meditation practice. 

Aware provides practical instruction for mastering the Wheel of Awareness, a life-changing tool for cultivating more focus, presence, and peace in one's day-to-day life. 

An in-depth look at the science that underlies meditation's effectiveness, this audiobook teaches listeners how to harness the power of the principle "Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows". Siegel reveals how developing a Wheel of Awareness practice to focus attention, open awareness, and cultivate kind intention can literally help you grow a healthier brain and reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in your life.  

Whether you have no experience with a reflective practice or are an experienced practitioner, Aware is a hands-on guide that will enable you to become more focused and present, as well as more energized and emotionally resilient in the face of stress and the everyday challenges life throws your way.

Critiques

"Meditation strengthens our attention, opens our awareness, and helps us cultivate compassion and kind intention, which have been shown to improve our health and our relationships. That’s exactly what Dan Siegel offers us with Aware, a practical guide to a life changing journey into the deep nature of our consciousness, what it means to be human and how to truly thrive." (Arianna Huffington, founder and CEO, Thrive Global, and founder, The Huffington Post

"Aware enables you to successfully search inside yourself to cultivate well-being and a deeper understanding of the mind with an exciting new approach to meditation.  The Wheel of Awareness provides a comprehensive, science-based way to develop the focused attention, open awareness, and kind intention that research reveals can help bring health and resilience into your life." (Chade-Meng Tan, New York Times best-selling author of Joy on Demand and Search Inside Yourself)

Least favorite of all my audible selections

Struggled to finish this one. He does a poor job of explaining the process right from the beginning.

I've stopped listening after two chapters

I've felt like no information was coming.. two chapters Siegel was describing how wonderful his method is, without explaining anything. Just get to the point man.. I couldn't bear it.

So this sensation, that he is trying to sell me something, convincing me of something, instead of just giving it to me as it is- just made me uncomfortable and agitated, not wanting to keep on listening.

Life Changing

What a fascinating book. I personally love reading about how the brain works and have been doing the Wheel Of Awareness meditation practice since I bought this book and the changes in my life have been huge. I’m a happier person who feels more connected and present in life. Thank you Dr. Dan Siegel for your incredible work.

I hate to do this, seriously

But I just can't.

This is my favorite sort of book. Books about 'presence' or awareness should at the very least inspire. This mostly inspired me to want to go take a nap. I simply could not keep my 'awareness' on the book itself at all. It's so dry and textbook-y, instead of making me friends with my conscious awareness I just wanted to go do something else, ANYTHING else. I have probably something near 500 audible titles and I have returned very, very few. But this one is going back, with me having listened to probably two hours of it, an hour of it I listened to twice thinking surely the problem was me, and that I was not paying sufficient attention. But if on two attempts a book cannot draw me in, I'm done. Meditation is simple. and this book seems to want to make it very, very complicated. Of course I could be wrong with that assessment as I can't bring myself to get farther in. I feel rather badly, like I owe the author an apology....but this was just so not for me.

Never Disappointed

I am forever a fan of Dr. Dan Siegel. I have followed his work for many years and his ideas continue to expand and evolve. I would recommend this book to those who have a basic understanding or interest in neuroscience, psychology and mindfulness practices.

A Graduate Course

This is not simply entertainment but a deep dive into awareness in a scientific point of view. Dr. Siegel provides simple practices as tools to bring awareness into daily life. This book explains the integration of body and mind consciousness through a scientific process regulating energy and information flow to create presence.

Disappointing

Dr Siegel has produced some wonderful work with helpful insights. There is some of that here but it is buried in rhetoric. I would estimate a half hour of information in many hours of talk. Mindsight, or the neurobiology of we are better choices.

A tale of two books

A tale of two books - I really enjoyed the first part, but found the second part worthless.

The first half was practical and discussed the pragmatic benefits of meditation, and a walkthrough of the "wheel of awareness" exercise. It also introduced me to the concept that what many refer to as spirituality or the connectedness of living beings that's referred to by Buddhism and other religions may actually be an emergent phenomena that can't be understood with reductionist thinking. Perhaps our interactions with each other have the holistic effect of uniting us in a system, much as my cells are holisticay united to make me. One can reason about this system and make falsifiable predictions about it, so it's real in some sense, and thus there's a way in which we're differentiated, and yet integrated.

However, in part two, the author ventures beyond his field of expertise into unscientific conjecture. The ideas he suggests are untestable and have nothing to do with the scientific method. They use concepts from quantum physics (probability distributions and wavefunctions), but these are misused and (admittedly) beyond what is knowable. I should also mention that my graduate research background is quantum physics, but I suspect that anyone who took an undergraduate course in quantum mechanics would see this material as specious. If I were to haphazardly toss together some very well engineered steel beams, that doesn't make a structurally sound house. For the same reason, you can't conjecture on the foundation of rigorously tested scientific results, and claim that the results have anything to do with science. As a result, the second half of this book is basically pure conjecture, which is disappointing for a book with science featured prominently in the subtitle.

As the author suggests early on, a better book for understanding the science behind meditation is likely Altered Traits or The Telomere Effect. If you want a pragmatic, yet reasoned, intro to meditation, read the first part of this book and skip the rest.

Incredible exploration of consciousness. Must-read

'Aware' is an incredible exploration of consciousness, mindfulness, and meditation, in the most tangible and scientific way possible. It is an absolutely required reading for those on a spiritual journey toward fulfillment and peace. I am so grateful for this book.
