Awake at the Wheel: Mindful Driving with Michele McDonald
2 Disc SetDigital Download
Turn off auto-pilot! Join renowned Vipassana teacher Michele McDonald on a journey that will transform distracted, frustrated driving into the alert peace and stillness of mindfulness meditation.
McDonald guides you through exercises that attune your 'driving mind' to:
- Notice and transform 'auto-pilot' into awareness
- Awaken to physical sensations and experience
- Free ourselves from the grip of emotion and repetitive thoughts
- Develop kindness and compassion
This remarkable 2-disc set includes introductions to mindfulness meditation specific to driving, and nearly two hours of exercises that can be learned in the car and used anywhere to enliven the mind, awake the senses, and enjoy the journey again.
The watched mind brings happiness.
I am larger and better than I thought. I did not know I held so much goodness.

I'm all for mindful driving, but why would I need to pay $15 to learn how?

I wonder if there's a course on mindful beach cruiser riding

I would certainly hope everyone was awake at the wheel
could not resist sorry.
I hope there are not too many people about driving on autopilot, and are actually paying attention to what they are doing though.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
