Show synopsis "A beautiful book, recommended for anyone interested in their own deep growth" - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross This classic book has never been out of print since it was first published in 1979. It has been widely acknowledged as probably the best existing text on Vipassana meditation. A simple and gently-written book, it is about Mindfulness - an ancient and accessible meditation form, with Buddhist origins. The basis of the practice is, Stephen says, "to directly participate in each moment as it occurs, with as much awareness and understanding as possible". 'A Gradual Awakening' has been important to thousands of people as a clear, basic guide to meditation, covering both the method itself and the issues arising from it. It has become a standard teaching text (along with Stephen's bestselling title, 'Who Dies?') in countless meditation centres and educational establishments, including medical schools. "Stephen Levine deals with meditation and social responsibility in a way that is neither abstract nor hollow. This is practical stuff for day-to-day living. His ability to do this comes from his own life in which he has shown a continuing sense of social consciousness." - Ram Dass "Levine's message and service fill an essential need today." - Psychology Today.
