Publisher's Summary

What Tim Ferriss did for life design and Brene Brown did for vulnerability, Stop Missing Your Life will do for presence.

In Stop Missing Your Life, mindfulness instructor Cory Muscara takes listeners on a journey from "being present" to embodying "presence", helping peel back the layers that prevent us from being our full, honest, integrated selves in the world. Muscara explains that most of us are living on autopilot, often so guarded that we aren't experiencing the potential richness that life has to offer.

Stop Missing Your Life reveals:

  • How we build internal walls, which Muscara refers to as a "Pain Box", that both protect us and inhibit us from living a deeply connected and meaningful life
  • A four-part FACE model (Focus, Allow, Curiosity, Embodiment) that helps chip away at the walls and find presence
  • Why it's a risk to be our true selves in the world, and why safety (which does not mean comfort) is one of the missing ingredients to finding presence
  • How we can make technology a part of our mindfulness practice - meditating with our devices, and also creating parameters around when and how we use technology

Stop Missing Your Life ultimately teaches how we can create new behaviors, stop self-sabotaging our growth, and let go of the things that hold us back.

Sensational!

I had a great time listening to this audio book, I gotta say I have been following Cory since about one year ago when I started practicing meditation through Simple Habit app and he has become my favorite meditation guide. I can't recommend high enough giving a try to his sensational audio book!

truly recommend - useful, practical, inspiring

Engaging content, sensibly laid-out, well read by the author. Recommending it to my friends and family.
The only negative I noticed in the audio version is that there were a few words or phrases that repeated, like something had gone awry with the sound file or editing. But it wasn't annoying enough to detract from the book.

Really great, I'm sure I'll want to listen again in a few months.

it's a meditation book

I would not have purchased it if the review had said what it is. it is a meditation book through and through. it delves deeper and deeper into meditation as the book moves on. interesting, but not what I was expecting. The reader pronounces words poorly, and several sentences are repeated.
