DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET Introduction 11 Choosing How to Live and Work Our world is fraught with so many challenges that many of us try to survive by numbing ourselves, thus losing our attentiveness. The Art of Awareness offers an antidote to that narrowing, if not debilitating, choice for how to be in the world. Living in the details of the human spirit leads to more mindful- ness, liveliness, and overall pleasure in your life. If you take the time to notice, each child offers a glimpse of something promising in the world. When you make what you value and notice more visible to yourself and to others, it becomes a resource for change. Together we can create an active vision for becoming individuals and a collective culture that holds children and child- hood as sacred and worthy of our utmost attention. COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
