In the twenty-first century, we are confronted by a rapidly changing world filled with social, economic, and environmental uncertainties. We are all connected inherently to our changing world, and to create the best possible conditions for life that thrives we must each develop the inner capacity to respond and adapt to life in new, creative, and innovative ways.

The author of this visionary book, Emma Kidd, tells us that our path to a happy, healthy, and peaceful world begins with each individual. By learning to recognize our cognitive habits of interrupting and defining life through our fixed ideas, labels, and judgments, we can develop a dynamic way of seeing that enables us to perceive and respond to life with greater attentiveness.

First Steps to Seeing reveals a set of practical stepping stones that guide the reader into this dynamic way of seeing and relating. Using personal stories, practical exercises, and real-world case studies in development, education, and business, the book takes us on a journey to explore how we can give our full attention to life and how we can enliven the world that we each co-create.

This book is an inspiring guide for all those working for social change, whether with young people, business, education, or research and anyone simply looking for fresh paths in life.
