I heartily recommend this workbook! Gina Biegel has crafted a series of mindfulness practices and reflections that are easily accessible, inviting, and wise. Teens who take the time to 'work' this workbook will gain insights about mindfulness, stress, and the mind-body connection that should benefit and serve them for years to come. -- Jeff Brantley, MD, director of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke Integrative Medicine and coauthor of Five Good Minutes(R) in Your Body
