If you are not particularly interested in following the Buddhist Path and just want to learn to practice mindfulness in order to expand your awareness (with all of its benefits) then this is the book for you. Ron Siegel is an excellent teacher. He succeeds in the very difficult task of explaining how to practice mindfulness better than anyone I've read or heard speak. It's not just a book, it's a manual.

Although I am familiar with Ron Siegel's work from a professional standpoint, his new book "the mindfulness solution: Everyday Practices for Everyday Problems" treks a cut above most self-help guides to mindfulness meditation. Siegel does an extraordinary job blending science, therapy and tradition in an easy-to-read enjoyable format. This is a must-read for anyone interested in incorporating mindfulness meditation into their daily lives and will certainly contribute to more effective therapy outcomes for those of us practicing in the mental health professions. The Mindfulness Solution offers a multitude of easy to use formal, as well as informal, meditation practices to help out with the everyday problems that we all face at times- to the more difficult emotional and/or physical roadblocks that contribute to our suffering. Ron Siegel presents the building blocks to a more mindful path with clarity, simplicity and a down-to-earth sense of humor that makes for an enjoyable, warm and transforming read. Do yourself a favor and check this out....and see for yourself!

With equal parts wisdom and humor, Dr. Siegel has created a comprehensive, practical guide to the application of mindfulness to a wide range of emotional and behavioral problems, including anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, addictions, illness, aging and death. Backed by the latest research and filled with detailed instructions on specific mindfulness techniques, this book is simple enough for the beginner and substantial enough for the more advanced practitioner. As a psychotherapist, I have already recommended it to several clients and have heard back from them that they found it immensely helpful.

Format: Paperback
Standing on the shoulders of Thich Nhat Hanh and Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ronald Siegel has made an enormous contribution to the field of bringing mindfulness practice into daily life. His book is at once readable, funny, inspiring and comprehensive. Drawing on his many years as a meditator, therapist and mindfulness teacher, Dr. Siegel provides an excellent introduction to the practice of mindfulness as well as many opportunities for those with greater experience to deepen their practices. He flows easily between the discussion of common clinical issues, such as anxiety, depression, physical pain or addictions, a range of practices for each problem, and many illustrative vignettes from his practice. Dr. Siegel also takes on the core experiences of being a human being--relationships, sex, parenting, aging and death--in a way that informs and joins the reader on the journey. An impressive blending of simplicity, directness and scholarship, "The Mindfulness Solution: Everyday practices for everyday problems" is a book that can be referred to over years for exploring the potential of mindfulness practice to illuminate and enrich our lives.

Format: Paperback
As a psychotherapist I am always searching for books that I can refer to clients that will help them with their presenting problems. Since I discovered The Mindfulness Solution, I have been referring the vast majority of my clients to this book. It is an easy read with practical wisdom and useful exercises that help facilitate insight and present moment awareness. The mindfulness exercises are descriptive and easy to understand. Dr. Siegel has tailored mindfulness meditations to help with numerous issues from stress reduction and relaxation to addictions and pain management. Anyone who reads this book will benefit from it, regardless of the reason for picking it up. Truly a valuable read!

I've always been interested in learning meditation for stress reduction, but have always shied away from looking into it because I thought I'd have to wade through a bunch of metaphysical/spiritual stuff I don't believe in to get to the part I can embrace. This book is exactly what I was looking for, even though I didn't know I was looking for it. Dr. Siegel does a wonderful job of explaining the psychological rationale behind meditation and presents many anecdotes that had me saying "hey, that's what *I* do!" when describing situations where meditation and mindfulness practice can be helpful. His explanations about the psychology and physiology behind both the problems and the solutions were extremely useful and convincing.

I found his instructions for how to do each meditation to be very clear and accessible, provoking an "I can do that" response from me that a more philosophical or spiritual text could not. I've begun doing some of the basic concentration meditations on a regular basis. I've had the book less than a week, so I'm not very far along, but I can already see how this is going to help me deal with some of the stresses in my life. Meditating even helped me shake off the funk that often follows me around after I've "survived" a trip to the dentist's office (I'm totally phobic about going to the dentist). I look forward to continuing my practice and seeing other ways meditation will help me deal with stress.
