The peace and tranquility that we long for is already within us, but it is veiled by our conditioned mind. Silent Awareness invites us into a much deeper understanding of ourselves and our intimate relationship with the whole of creation. All that is necessary is to relax into a quiet mind and expect nothing. And then it is possible for timeless awareness to appear effortlessly. The stillness and compassion of our own essential nature enfolds us. In being aware of this loving current within us, we have come home without having gone anywhere.
Drawing from the wisdom of sages and mystics from around the world, the book offers an easily accessible framework for unveiling the silent awareness in which we are whole and complete. A key component in this unveiling is our attention, and learning to listen and see with a quiet mind. When that happens, everything changes ― conflict and division fade away and our relationship with others and the world is transformed.
The book also includes easy-to-follow suggestions that relax body and mind so that we can live fully in the present moment, aware of the hidden beauty that underpins life. This is not an academic pursuit ― it is a direct experience that opens the mind and heart to the unconditioned love that is the ground of our Being.

The beauty and wonder of the natural world offer us a window into ourselves, if we know how to look. It is a precious gift, but most of us don’t know how to open it.
We have been trained to think that nature is separate from us. But nothing could be further from the truth. We are entwined with the natural world, like a tree with its roots.
When we come upon the silence of a majestic mountain or listen to joyful birdsong on a spring morning, we are invited into the present moment, where there is no past and no future. In these rare and wonderful moments, the thinking mind stops its constant chatter, and we encounter a dimension of being where there is no time. It is the gateway to a sacred dimension within every human being.
When we are in communion with nature, we are in communion with ourselves. And it is within this mysterious and beautiful relationship that we begin to see ourselves as we really are.
