Summary

TheMindful Universe explores the scientific workings of the Universe, its awe-inspiring nature, and how it can be partnered with mindfulness to bring meaning to our lives. 

Part of the Mindfulness series, this book looks at science through the lens of mindfulness and spirituality, bringing together two seemingly opposed beliefs through topics such as: 

  • The journey of a photon
  • Our chemical origins from the birth of stars
  • The nature of time
  • The limits to our senses
  • The beauty of nebulae
  • Non-duality and quantum theory
  • ... and much more

Mark Westmoquette takes you on a fascinating journey through space, time, our mind, and the mysteries of the cosmos in this lovingly-written book. Through practical meditations, facts, and anecdote, he points the reader to a life-affirming realisation: that when we start to observe things mindfully, just as they really are, we start to find the secrets of the Universe revealing themselves before our very eyes.
