About this book

Through personal anecdote and expert insight, Claire Thompson of BirdLife International invites us on a mindful journey through gardens, cities, open country, forests, coasts and mountains to enjoy and learn from the magnificent beauty and diversity of the avian world.

Who has never gazed enviously at a bird soaring through the sky? Or delighted in the uplifting tunes of nature's songsters? Birds can do wonders for our hearts and minds – if we simply pay them attention. With The Art of Mindful Birdwatching, Claire Thompson reveals how the practice of mindfulness enriches our birdwatching experiences – and explores how birds are, in turn, the ideal inspiration for the practice of mindfulness. To Claire, bird flight is a symbol of freedom to soar through life without constraint, and mindfulness similarly enables us to invite freedom and happiness into our own lives.

Media reviews

"Once again Claire has given us compelling reasons why we should all be more mindful, through her glorious evocation of why birds inspire, enthral and ultimately calm us. This little book is full of good advice: above all, watch, notice and learn with your heart, not just your mind."
– Fiona Reynolds, Former Director-General of the National Trust
