The Unfolding Now, by A.H. Almaas is a book to help the reader get more in touch with themselves through simply learning to pay attention, a skill much easier done than said. More than just a “this is how you do it” book, each chapter ends with an “exploration session” designed to help move you towards the goal of being more in the moment and thus helping you be more who you really are. Unlike many books that have a personal “Q & A” session at the end of the book or chapters, the ones in this book are actually worth doing. Regardless of your spirituality or level of mindfulness, this book is worth picking up.

    Who publishes it? Is it printed on eco-responsible paper? Where can I buy it? Thanks for the review, Toddman!

    Oh geez… I can’t believe I forgot to put that in there. Too quick on the draw! It’s published by Shambhala Publications on acid-free paper. You can get it at your local, independent bookseller or from Shambhala Publications:

    I want to get in touch with A. H. Almaas. I work with The Rebuilding Alliance. Are you the same person who has worked with our organization?? I love your book title and jacket. I wish you the very best. I am a 2x a day meditator…and wish I would do it more….
