Coming soon: 'Uncontrived Mindfulness' by VajradeviOn Fri, 13 March, 2020 - 12:44
In December Windhorse Publications announced the first six books we’ll be publishing in 2020, and we’re now delighted to announce the seventh, due for release in October: Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom by respected meditation teacher, Vajradevi.
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.

Why sponsor a book?
Publishing in the 21st century is all about adapting to challenging conditions, with lower profits from online sales and increased competition from digital formats. At Windhorse Publications we are meeting this challenge, but we increasingly need start-up funding for a book’s production and marketing. You can help us by choosing to sponsor one of our upcoming books.
