Noticing the wonders of the night skies can foster a sense of curiosity, awe and deep interconnectedness like nothing else on Earth!
Mindful Thoughts for Stargazers presents a constellation of meditations on how the mysteries of the outer universe connect us all more deeply to our inner universes.
Astronomer and ex-Zen monk Mark Westmoquette explores how astronomy proves to be an enlightening tool to transformative awareness–through shooting stars, eclipses and the journey of a photon, we discover how to find meaning and presence here and now.
