“With this intriguing set of copper etchings – both charming and challenging – psychologist and meditation teacher Ekman invites us to mindfully explore key elements of our psychological lives. Each image is a postcard from slightly beyond our conventional way of thinking and each question is an invitation to wake up to the richness of the present moment. These mini-meditations will help you start each day with a little more wonder and freedom.“

Christopher Germer

“I appreciate Ekman’s art and mindful contemplation’s on what it is to be human and humane with heart and wonder. Take time to look at the pictures and ponder the prose and find your heart.”

“Trying to illustrate mindfulness with words is like learning to ride a horse by reading a manual. Ekman has brought the depth and texture of mindfulness to life with beautifully crafted images alongside evocative impressionistic language. It takes readers on a transformative journey.”

Willem Kuyken

Professor, University of Oxford and Director, Oxford Mindfulness Centre

“The playfulness of Ekman’s drawings opens the heart to the depth of courage and constancy needed to turn toward old ways of being, while exploring fresh possibilities. Whether you enjoy this book in one sitting or choose one practice as a focus for each new day, the invitation to join light-heartedness with the serious intention to wake up is here!”
