Sunrise Meditations on Marco Island

About the Book

In my new book, Sunrise Meditations on Marco Island, I  provide a beautiful guide for greater mindfulness with fun, easy to master exercises and information that guide you through your mindfulness training while enjoying the beauty of Marco Island at sunrise.

Sunrise Meditations on Marco Island is a book for anyone who loves color photographs of Marco Island’s beaches, waterways, and sunrises. It is also a book for anyone who is interested in learning how to practice mindfulness meditation while walking or running on the beach or kayaking on the waters surrounding Marco Island or your local waterways.

I’ve spent hundreds of mornings walking and running on Marco Island’s beaches and kayaking on the surrounding waters at sunrise. All of the photos in this book were taken during my sunrise runs on the beach or kayak outings in the 10,000 islands. Marco Island is the first and largest of the 10,000 islands that stretch all the way along the Gulf of Mexico to Key West.

I’ve tried to use my photos to capture the grandeur of Marco Island sunrises and my writing to capture its soul. My innovative approach to teaching sitting and moving meditation will show you how to build a mindfulness meditation practice around your love of the beach and the water. This beautiful book will not only enhance your love of watching the sun rise over Marco Island’s beaches and beautiful waterways, it will show you how to enrich your life with mindfulness.

What is Mindfulness?

Most people have heard about mindfulness but really don’t understand what it is or how to use it to make their lives better. Simply put, mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment with all five of your senses. There are four dimensions of mindful moments. All mindful moments are:

  • present centered
  • non-conceptual
  • non-judgmental
  • non-verbal

Mindful moments are present centered because they always focus on the present, never the past or the future. Most of your thoughts are one step removed from the present moment because they focus on the past or future.

Mindful moments are non-conceptual because during them you merely notice the occurrence of something and your thoughts and feelings related to it. You don’t try to figure out why you are thinking and feeling what you are, you simply notice and accept what is going on.

Mindful moments are non-judgmental because they are based on accepting reality for what it is. You do not judge or compare a person or an experience  against some arbitrary standard, you just accept them for what they are.

Lastly, mindful moments are non-verbal. They do not involve talking. Speaking involves another layer of cognitive activity that takes you out of the present moment.

The book is laid out so that each photo page has a mirror image page with text written on it. One the left page is the color photo and on the right page is the mirror image that serves as a watermark upon which the text is printed. I’ve tried to minimize the amount of text and limit it to what you need to know in order to practice sitting or moving mindfulness meditation.
