Winner of the 2017 Griffin Prize Winner of the 2016 Costa Poetry Award Shortlisted for the 2016 T. S. Eliot Award Shortlisted for the 2016 Forward Prize A Daily Telegraph / Guardian / Herald / New Statesman / Sunday Times / Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year Alice Oswald’s poems are always vivid and distinct, alert and deeply, physically, engaged in the natural world. Mutability – a sense that all matter is unstable in the face of mortality – is at the heart of this new collection and each poem is involved in that drama: the held tension that is embodied life, and life’s losing struggle with the gravity of nature. Working as before with an ear to the oral tradition, these poems attend to the organic shapes and sounds and momentum of the language as it’s spoken as well as how it’s thought: fresh, fluid and propulsive, but also fragmentary, repetitive. These are poems that are written to be read aloud. Orpheus and Tithonus appear at the beginning and end of this book, alive in an English landscape, stuck in the clockwork of their own speech, and the Hours – goddesses of the seasons and the natural apportioning of Time – are the presiding figures. The persistent conditions are flux and falling, and the lines are in constant motion: approaching, from daring new angles, our experience of being human, and coalescing into poems of simple, stunning beauty.

Think you have no time for mindfulness? Think again. "Thoughtful and provocative.... The relevance of this work is unquestionable, as it leaves us inspired and optimistic that true healing really is possible" (Sharon Salzberg).

More than twenty years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we think about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. He followed that up with 2005's Coming to Our Senses, the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our well-being on every level, physical, cognitive, emotional, social, planetary, and spiritual. Now, the original text of Coming to Our Senses is being repackaged into 4 smaller books, each focusing on a different aspect of mindfulness, and each with a new foreword written by the author. In this second of these books, Falling Awake (which was originally published as Part III and Part IV of Coming to Our Senses), Kabat-Zinn focuses on the "how" of mindfulness--explaining how meditation brings us into intimate relationship with all our senses, how to establish a formal meditation practice, and how to overcome some of the common obstacles to incorporating meditation into daily life in an age of perpetual self-distraction. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Falling Awake offers a reflection—one for each day of the year—to encourage individuals to seek out and to find those moments of quiet and solitude in which they can attune themselves to God’s quiet voice. By drawing upon the insights and experiences of Fr. Mark Burger, author, the reflections in Falling Awake present a gradual and immersive way to grow closer to God. The pace of modern life is frantic, hectic, and frenetic. Falling Awake recognizes that most people live in precisely that reality. In response, the reflections suggest slowing down, reducing the volume, eliminating the distractions, and freeing one’s ears to listen for that voice, the one from God that waits patiently for the right moment to speak softly in one’s ear. When you are ready to listen, God will speak; this is the promise Falling Awake makes. It shows, through the experiences of God’s people in biblical and modern times, that God works slowly and incrementally to change people’s lives by speaking to them.

These are poems of the present, of commercials and human interest stories, of the drive-in windows that make banks and bedrooms of our cars. These poems trace the faint erasures of time and human relationships-following runners as they pause by the Ticonderoga ferry and Lake Champlain, riding with tourists across a river to an old fort, the distant sounds of a historic slaughter obscured by the misfiring pistons of an inboard motor and by the unforgiving surf. Describing the world he has seen and loved as well as how that world sometimes threatens itself, Gary Margolis speaks with caring humor and seriousness of the brokenness and beauty of America's present.

Waking is a natural shift from unconsciousness to awareness. Falling awake is a special case of waking where we relax out of old patterns, ease out of resistance, and surrender to the grace and love that are always present beneath the surface of appearances. Although falling awake, like falling asleep, cannot be forced, it can be prepared for. Integrating perspectives from physical, social and psychological sciences, philosophy, religion and energy awareness, and calling on many years of experience as a teacher, counsellor and Buddhist monk, Blattner takes us step by step into an expanded understanding of the universe in which we live, the mind/body system that we call "self," and that which may lie beyond. With gentleness and kindness, Falling Awake shows us how to move beyond the programs and limiting belief systems that support the problems in our lives, and awaken into an increasingly gentle, joyful, and expanded experience of the art of living.

Falling Awake - A Heroine's Journey is a memoir about how we continue to re-create early experiences throughout our lives, until we can wake up enough to realise and set ourselves free. The story is told in three parts; revisiting Victoria's early life and the events that shaped her, recalling how she then repeated the patterns that had been set, then finally integrating her learning from 20 years as a psychotherapist to set about healing the past and attempting to move forward in a new way. The result is a raw and honest, often funny, often sad, tale of introspection and growth. This book is for anyone who is curious about the patterns we repeat and how we are conditioned by our early experiences. It is also for anyone who may be feeling stuck and who is looking for some inspiration or has ever wondered...is it just me?! In 2018, after her two boys had left home, Victoria decided to sell her house, go travelling and re-discover who she was and who she was going to be for the next phase of her life. She stepped into the unknown, trusting what would unfold. What followed was two years of travelling to several countries, training to be a qoya teacher, taking part in numerous ceremonies and rituals, attending 10-day-long silent vipassana retreats, selling the remainder of her possessions, healing some old wounds, and writing a memoir. In sharing her story she trusts that it will find its' way to those who will benefit from reading about it, because when we write to heal and share that writing, others can heal too. Victoria is a writer, psychotherapist, mindfulness and qoya teacher. Through a blend of these therapeutic practices, she guides others to tell their story and reclaim their truth. "There are books that tell half-truths, like a manicured garden, where all that is not traditionally seen as beautiful is weeded away. And then there are books that tell whole truths, that compost pain, grief, and confusion into wisdom, compassion, and love, with the courage to ask deeper questions and to answer honestly. Victoria's writing is an example of the power there is in sharing our stories. As we read another's reflection on their life, we receive an opportunity to better see ourselves." - Rochelle Schieck, author of Qoya: A Compass for Navigating an Embodied Life that is Wise, Wild and Free "When a woman tells her story, she gives others permission to do the same. Falling Awake - A Heroine's Journey by Victoria Smisek allows us to look into the past as we reach for a more authentic future. Victoria takes us on the road trip of a lifetime. By the end of the book, you'll be inspired to share your story, too." - Betsy Blankenbaker Murphy, author of Autobiography of an Orgasm "This memoir, both skillfully and intelligently written, seductively draws its reader into a sometimes gritty adventure of a life thus far... filled with poignancy, humour, and self-reflection in just the right balance that kept me hooked from beginning to end. It was hard to stop reading once I had started... a must-read for anyone also interested in self-discovery and life." - Sarah Burt ND, author of Getting healthy in 7 simple steps
