Who am I? How we respond to this common human question is of vital importance to our happiness and well-being, for it is only by understanding that we are a part of nature that we can gain a real context for our lives. Drawing upon the techniques of mindfulness, ancient Buddhist wisdom and recent discoveries in evolutionary science and psychology, Wes Nisker offers us a deep understanding of our co-existence with the elements, sunlight, sea, plants and animals. Through meditations and reflections on this universal truth, he helps us to a greater self-awareness - and thereby to increased freedom and happiness.

"One of the best efforts yet to bring together meditators and scientists. (This book) is an instrument for our greater joy and achievements." -- Thich Nhat Hanh "This book is a milestone in contemporary Buddhism...Here Wes Nisker, with stunning generosity and compassion, ground the Buddha's teachings in discoveries made by the neural and evolutionary sciences. I dare you to find a book on science that is so personal, or a book on meditation that is so funny and forgiving." -- Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self
