This year started with a ‘bang’ for us with two new releases. A Meditator’s Life of the Buddha by Bhikkhu Anālayo aims to help meditators gain inspiration and guidance by following the Buddha’s journey. Wild Awake hopes to inspire and support people who are going out into nature and/or reflecting in solitude.
