Michael Amster will join us on Thursday, May 18, 2023 from 6:30-7:30pm to discuss his book The Power of Awe. This event will take place at The Avid Reader bookstore at 617 2nd Street in Downtown Davis, CA.
About the Book
Research has proven that mindfulness improves well-being, reduces stress, anxiety and pain. But for some, the practice itself feels challenging and inaccessible. That’s where the A.W.E. Method comes in. In The Power of Awe, therapist Jake Eagle and chronic pain specialist Michael Amster, MD, share their extraordinary yet simple mindfulness practice that turns ordinary moments into awe-inducing experiences, helping you effortlessly achieve a heightened state of consciousness usually reserved for seasoned practitioners of mindfulness—all within a matter of seconds.
