    As someone who has been practicing meditation for years and has read many books and listened to numerous lectures I had never heard the term effortless mindfulness After having read The Way of Effortless Mindfulness by Loch Kelly I’m still not entirely sure I could describe the difference between effortless and regular mindfulness but that is not for the author’s lack of trying That does not in any way detract from the book’s value as an instructive guide to mindfulness In fact this is the very book I wish I’d had when I first started meditating At the time I was struggling to figure out what exactly I was supposed to be doing in trying to clear my mind or focus on my breath This book offers descriptions and instruction for many various approaches to mindfulness There are many things I appreciated about the author’s approach the primary one being that he recognizes that everyone is different and what may work for one person might not work for another Mindfulness has become so prevalent today in many forms This is not a spiritual guide nor does it lay out ways to use meditation to further productivity It is instructive of using mindfulness as a way of approaching everyday life in everyday situations

    It wasn't what I expected though it was probably better than what I expectedI found myself a bit stuck on the unhooking partI wish he'd tried some different phrases to help me understand or maybe described the experience a bit Essentially it's about moving your centre of awareness out of your head into your body out out into the space around youI put the book down at that point but came back to read the rest of it It didn't really make any sense but I still got stuff out of itI think the biggest issue with it is that there are little Glimpses meditations all the way through but there's nowhere to listen to them You just have to read them and many are eyes closedI think he suggests recording them for yourself but I don't want to listen to a crappy recording of my own voiceDespite those problems I'm still rating it 4 stars because the book and the ideas are so original It's definitely changed the way I think about meditation

    I had read Kelly's previous book Shift Into Freedom but had not reviewed it I just gave it 4 stars and may go back and review it I devoured this follow up uickly and recommend you read it as wellKelly's effortless mindfulness differs from standard breath or noting techniues both of which engage the mind in concentration activities in that it shifts attention away from the mind altogether to locate awareness progressively further away from the mind first in the body which Kelly calls local awareness and then in one's broader surroundings which Kelly calls spacious awarenessWithout getting into metaphysical speak regarding the nature of awareness or the essential goodness of people or imagining a big C Consciousness none of which is necessary for practicing any kind of mindfulness I believe that these practices are akin to the techniues for shifting attention bodily and spatially that psychologist Les Fehmi teaches in his Open Focus books and courses A lot of the teaching material and exercises particularly chapter 6 of this book are the same as from Shift Into Freedom However this book shows a maturation of Kelly's teaching methods He explains things clearly He also incorporates some useful psychology models If you've read Shift Into Freedom this is worth reading despite the redundant content If you haven't read Shift Into Freedom this is a fantastic way to begin a mindfulness practice

    It's a wonderful concept the ability to live in a permanent and effortless state of mindfulness and the glimpses I thought would make for a great way to open that up whenever it was called upon but the book reads VERY esoterically The author layers on awareness in such a meta way it felt to me while I was reading and attempting to practice his method that there was no way to tell what layer you were actually on Am I simply aware right now? Or am I actually being aware of the awareness? Am I aware that the awareness that I'm aware of is merely awareness or is it awareness of the awareness that I'm feeling This is actually a thought process that the author assumes is totally natural for anyone reading his book I don't mind having multiple layers of awareness and I actually found myself deepening into his sublevels on occasion but he writes on so joyfully and uickly as if this were the most natural ability in the world and that one just merely had to think and it would come Had to put the book down after deeming it unhelpful to really keep me focused on the present moment Too bad

    This book is already transforming my practice not just of mindfulness but of lifeLoch has a powerful way of helping you cut through the tangles and illusions of thought and the personas you wear both internally and externallyHighly recommend I have both the Kindle for reading and the audiobook for the Glimpse practices although since Loch doesn’t read the audiobook this time some of the Glimpse practices fall a bit flat you have to pause to give yourself time between instructionsAlso highly recommend his series of meditations on the WakingUp App Those practices go alongside this book very well

  8. says:

    A wonderful book that intelligently mixes modern psychology with ancient eastern wisdom practices into a modern contemporary practical guide Loch explains and gives specific instructions for an advanced yet simple form of mindfulness that brings immediate benefits To summarize the book in a few sentences We are already awake But our small mind and ego obscure this basic fact This book is a precise empirical guide Do small glimpses many times in the midst of your everyday life

  9. says:

    The biggest problem with this book is that it gets too conceptual As an example lot of time is spent on ‘Effortless Mindfulness” vs “Deliberate mindfulness” and why one is better than the other I wish this time could be spent on how to ease out into whatever mindfulness it is It gets a little too technical and may goes too aggressively into branding things But maybe this is for people who wants to get into the “cutting edge” of mindfulness I am a novice and I could not really connect
