Awake in the Wild

While the Buddha achieved enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, the experience of meditating outdoors has been neglected over the centuries due to our modern lifestyle’s emphasis on indoor living. But Mark Coleman has revitalized of the art of meditating outside with this thoughtful treatise. In short, simple and beautifully written chapters, Coleman covers a wide range of subject matter from “Experiencing the Freshness of Every Moment” to “Weathering the Storms of Life” that bridge the experiences of meditation with the appreciation of nature. Most of the chapters contain personal stories from Coleman and his students, and every chapter ends with a meditation practice incorporating the ideas and concepts that were presented. Coleman shows us that the practice of meditation in the outdoors facilitates our ability to meditate as well as deepens our attunement, appreciation and understanding of the natural world.
