The Gradual Awakening book and The Gradual Path guided meditations offer a comprehensive training program of thirty contemplative insights and practices drawn from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The program supports the cultivation of self-care, altruism and wisdom and presents Tibet's ancient mind science through the lens of current neuropsychology making it accessible to the modern mindset. The gradual path of awakening proposes an alternative to spontaneous, all-or-nothing enlightenment, quick fixes, and New Age self-help for seekers ready to commit to the hard work, over the long haul, that it takes to become fully human.
