Wherever You Go, There You Are has become a classic that continues to change lives far and wide, mapping out both the rationale and a simple path for cultivating mindfulness one's own way in one's own life. It speaks both to those coming to meditation for the first time and to longtime practitioners, and to anyone who cares deeply about experiencing life - and consciousness itself - to the fullest.
When Wherever You Go, There You Are was first published in 1994, no one could have predicted that the book would launch itself onto bestseller lists nationwide and sell over 750,000 copies to date. Ten years later, the book continues to change lives. In honor of the book's 10th anniversary, Hyperion is proud to be releasing the book with a new afterword by the author, and to share this wonderful book with an even larger audience.
