Mindful Thoughts for Stargazers explores how knowledge of the workings of the universe can deepen our levels of awareness and connect us to our internal worlds.
Part of the Mindful Thoughts series, this dazzlingly illustrated little book meditates on all aspects of the cosmos, including: stars, planets, the moon, comets, navigation, time, sound photons and so much more!
Physics and astronomy are not cold, detached subjects, they engender awe, wonder, and a sense of connection with everything that exists. Astronomer and ex-Zen monk, Mark Westmoquette, provides 25 calming meditations that offer mindful-insight on the skies above us, suitable for everyone from scientists to stargazers.
