Publisher's Summary

Many of us live on autopilot, often so guarded that we don't experience the potential richness that life has to offer. How can we find real happiness amidst the chaos, where we don't reach our life's end and feel we missed out?

In Stop Missing Your Life, mindfulness teacher Cory Muscara takes us on a journey into the heart of what is required for real change, growth, and happiness. He exposes how the phrase 'be present' has become little more than a platitude, imbued with the misguided message to be present just for the sake of being present, and reveals how to achieve true presence: a quality of being that is unmistakably attractive about a person, and one that comes only when we've peeled back the layers of guarding that prevent us from being our full, honest and integrated selves in the world. 

Muscara demonstrates how we build internal walls, what he describes as a 'Pain Box' inhibiting us from living a deeply connected and meaningful life. He offers a four-part FACE model (Focus, Allow, Curiosity and Embodiment) that helps chip away at those walls and builds our capacity to experience the richness of our lives. 

Stop Missing Your Life ultimately teaches how we can find peace in the chaos and become better people for our family, our communities and our world.

Spectacular

I absolutely loved this book. Cory found a way to make all the things that we hear and read are good for us REAL. The examples were applicable and the way everything was explained resonated with me so much. It was so well read by Cory himself who gave emphasis to the right things and brought his point across so well.

I'm on to listening to it for the third time and I've introduced it to my husband and Mom who have both loved it.

I would strongly recommend giving this book a listen/ read.

Cory, please write another one! Your views and messages are brilliant!

Not your ordinary self help book

I first hear of Cory Muscara when being interviewed on the Raj Jana podcast Stay Grounded and within minutes of that ending, had purchased Stop Missing Your Life and had it downloaded. Cory is a great story teller and I was fascinated by his experiences in Burma, but while some of the book draws on that experience, it is all about living your best life right here where you are standing now, unless you are standing in a remote Burmese temple right now... still read it anyway, you can't go wrong!

The book is not something to listen to in the bus, train or while driving - sure you can and some of it is easily consumable in those situations, but the book is littered with practical exercises that you are going to want to get involved in. There are also heaps of additional resources to support these exercises on his website so you don't have to remember which exercise is in which chapter.

I really enjoyed the book, it's easy to listen too, the exercises are practical for beginners to medication and this type of mindfulness training, but it's not just for beginners, a seasoned meditator and mindfulness practitioner will get value and a new perspective as well.

Ironically the book teachers presence and presence is what you want to bring to this book. I learnt a lot and am putting into practice a lot of the exercises. I hope your experience is as good as mine.
