Praise for Uncontrived Mindfulness:
A wonderful book, written with that independence of mind characteristic of deep practitioners. Reading is like being taken into the author’s mind: just the tone reveals how what’s being described is affecting her. – Kamalashila, meditation teacher and author of Buddhist Meditation: Tranquillity, Imagination & Insight
Vajradevi is a practitioner who shares her own experience of practising mindfulness simply and clearly. She makes traditional concepts accessible because she knows them from the inside, and Uncontrived Mindfulnessis full of stories of how Vajradevi has learned to be mindful of her own life. The uncontrived relaxation of her writing matches her message that mindfulness isn’t a technique or an achievement so much as a ‘wise involvement with experiences’ that is both focused and at ease. – Vishvapani Blomfield, author of Gautama Buddha: The Life and Teachings of the Awakened One
