Editorial Reviews

Review

''Mindfulness'' is a state of awareness that can be learned as a method of coping skillfully with life's ongoing changes on a moment-to-moment basis. This 'mindfulness' skill can be acquired through meditation practice and the basic teachings associated with this approach. Dr. Richard Fields has done an outstanding job of providing access to the practice of mindfulness in this excellent book, Awakening to Mindfulness. As with Health Communications' bestselling series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Dr. Fields serves up mindfulness as 'minestrone for the mind,' in ten chapters, each a special ingredient in this 'food for thought' menu. I highly recommend it for readers who wish to learn more about mindfulness and establish their own practice.'

Format: Paperback
This is a very basic intro to vipassana, large type, and if you've done any practice or read much at all, it will not be particularly eye-opening.

The Wellness-Recovery Connection: Charting Your Pathway to Optimal Health While Recovering from Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

I recently attended a presentation by the author at a counseling skills conference, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading his book "Awakening to Mindfulness". Writing from the heart, Dr. Fields provides an insightful, easy to understand treatise on mindfulness and its applications in our day to day lives. I particularly enjoyed his discussion of basic Buddhist principles in the first section of the book. This book is a great read for anyone who wants to awaken to the now and learn more about the important topic of mindfulness.
