Awakening Mindfulness When Meditation Is Not Enough

A handbook to support the cultivation of awareness, compassion, and joy in the midst of our everyday lives

Pause . . . breathe . . . smile .Three small words, yet each contains a universe of wisdom .With Pause, Breathe, Smile, Gary Gach invites us to bring the practice of mindfulness into every moment of our lives.

Writing for students of all levels, Gach draws on 50-plus years of study and practice in this elegant and accessible presentation of three central aspects of mindful living .The Pause is about setting our intention before we think, speak, or act—the ethical dimension of mindfulness .When we Breathe we unite mind, body, and spirit, making every moment an opportunity for meditation .With a Smile, we open to a wisdom beyond words.This simple process will “water your innate seeds of awakening, to help you pave your own path to total fulfillment and peace.”

For all who may wish to explore mindfulness in their lives as a healing and transformative practice, remember three little words: Pause, Breathe, Smile.
