Review

“Want a happier, more content life? I highly recommend the down-to-earth methods you’ll find in this book. Professor Mark Williams and Dr. Danny Penman have teamed up to give us scientifically grounded techniques we can apply in the midst of our everyday challenges and catastrophes.” ―Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

“Peace can't be achieved in the outside world unless we have peace on the inside. Mark Williams and Danny Penman's book gives us this peace.” ―Goldie Hawn

“Clarity and simplicity of explanation and instruction is a wonderful plus to those who might want to try this practice. This eight week program is well presented and doable – even for busy people.” ―Sound Commentary

Product Description

The Life-Changing International Bestseller

Mindfulness reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion. It promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.

The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and is widely recommended by US physicians and the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence—in other words, it works. More importantly it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.

MBCT was developed by the book's author, Oxford professor Mark Williams, and his colleagues at the Universities of Cambridge and Toronto. By investing just 10 to 20 minutes each day, you can learn the simple mindfulness meditations at the heart of MBCT and fully reap their benefits. The book includes links to audio meditations to help guide you through the process. You'll be surprised by how quickly these techniques will have you enjoying life again.

As a beginner, I found mindfulness frustrating and annoying at first. But by the third week, I began looking forward to it, and eventually started to notice subtle improvements in unexpected areas of my life. The accompanying audio downloads are extremely helpful, and I keep them handy on my iPhone.

I purchased this book from the Kindle store and very highly recommend it. The links to the audio meditations alone make it very with it. During a time of stress I purchased it and it has helped me be more successful in incorporating meditation as a daily practice more often.

I am a psychotherapist and have been recommending this book to my clients.

I have only started the mindfulness program, so I can't write as to the helpfulness of the technique itself. But I found the product to be very much as the product description. I also really like that the audiobook is divided onto two CDs, one containing information about mindfulness and how to use the exercises, and the other being just guided exercises.
