Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom
Uncontrived Mindfulness is a fresh and comprehensive look at how we can use mindfulness to look at the mind and how it works. The Buddha emphasized that happiness is found through understanding the mind rather than getting caught up in what we experience through the senses. This simple yet radical shift from our usual focus is key to a relaxed and natural – uncontrived – way of observing the creations of our minds.
Uncontrived Mindfulness is a deep dive into the practice of exploring our experience as it happens. The emphasis throughout is on cultivating wisdom, using the tools of attention and curiosity to recognize and see through the delusion that is causing our suffering. Vajradevi is a warm and insightful guide to this exploration, drawing on her intensive and wide-ranging practice of Satipatthana meditation.
The clear explanations and instructions are amplified by Vajradevi’s personal accounts, charting her uncompromising voyage into self-discovery.
