    Let go. Relax. Be present. Here and now. Find a moment, any moment, anywhere, at any time—right now. Wake up to life.

    Meditation: Waking Up to Life is a collection of 108 teachings on meditation and daily life. The ruminations in this collection are intended to inspire and support your meditation practice, however that practice happens to manifest. This book encourages the exploration and acceptance of your unique, individualized approach to peaceful contemplation. It reinforces that there is no right or wrong way to meditate, and that focusing on results can lead to a derailment of internal awareness and contentment.

    Whether new to the meditative experience or a veteran practitioner, these words of wisdom will inspire relaxation, mindfulness, and introspection, leading to a deeper expression of peace and enlightenment.

    Americ Azevedo is a life-long meditator and philosopher of everyday life. He has an extensive background in the study of philosophy and world religions and taught various courses in meditation theory and practice, spiritual practice, peace and conflict, and philosophy at UC Berkeley, Pacific School of Religion, Berkeley City College, and San Francisco State University. He conducts "Philosophers' Forums" within the community and leads workshops and retreats with focus in meditation, leadership-dialogue-actualization, stress management, and nonviolence.
