Editorial Reviews

Review

“Engage your heart. Engage your mind. Engage your spirit. You have heard all this before, but now Donald Altman can show you how in One-Minute Mindfulness. This book is chock-full of insightful nuggets that will stimulate your mind and stir your heart.”
— John Baldoni, author of Lead with Purpose

“Donald Altman’s One-Minute Mindfulness is loaded with wisdom and includes practical exercises for tapping into the power of the here and now. Mindfulness is much more than just a spiritual practice. It awakens us to the joy of life. In the present moment, the whole world sparkles with beauty.”
— Tobin Blake, author of The Power of Stillness

“Too much of the time we’re running on automatic. In One-Minute Mindfulness, Donald Altman gently guides our focus of attention in directions that wake up the senses, nurture the soul, and uplift the spirit — in just sixty seconds! This book helps us make each new minute a potential encounter with life itself; the world very much needs this pragmatic spiritual book...right now.”
— John Selby, author of Quiet Your Mind and Expand This Moment

About the Author

Donald Altman, MA, LPC, is a practicing psychotherapist, former Buddhist monk, award-winning writer, and board member of The Center for Mindful Eating. The author of Meal by Meal and other books, he teaches at Lewis and Clark College Graduate School and in the interpersonal neurobiology program at Portland State University. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

More About the Author

Donald is a psychotherapist and former Buddhist monk. Born in Chicago, he now resides in Portland, Oregon, where he teaches at Portland State University as an adjunct faculty member of the Interpersonal Neurobiology Program, and is an adjunct professor at Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling. Donald also serves on the board of directors of "THE CENTER FOR MINDFUL EATING."

In his own words: "Mindfulness is my passion. I ordained in a Burmese Buddhist monastery with a wonderful mindfulness teacher-- the venerable U. Silananda (author of The Four Foundations of Mindfulness). Later, while leading workshops on spiritual eating, I found many people coming to ask me about eating disorders that they were struggling with... and so I returned to school and am now a licensed psychotherapist. I believe it only takes a few grains of mindfulness each day to deepen enjoyment in daily life, and I have seen how it has changed lives in a positive way... one moment at a time!"

In addition to bringing practical mindfulness skills and strategies to anyone wanting a less chaotic life, Donald also travels around the country teaching therapists and professionals how to use clinical mindfulness interventions for anxiety, depression, and stress.

This is the perfect book for that quick moment of mindfulness. It really starts my day with a smile and a gentle reminder of why we're here on this earth--to find new possibilities in a stressed out world, to connect peacefully with ourselves and others. Each time I pick it up I find something new to think about.

I'm a health writer and often write about the topic of mindfulness, because there's so much research on the benefits of mindfulness-based stress reduction. There are a lot of books out there on this topic, but I find Donald Altman's among the best of the best--and this is another winner. He presents mindfulness in its practical essence, allowing anyone to practice it easily, in any circumstance. That is a HUGE help, I think. I highly recommend this book for people new to mindfulness, and people who want to refresh and renew their practice of this accepting, open attitude, which is so essential to health and well-being.

Format: Paperback
Ever feel like the world around you is collapsing right on top of you? Looking for something that can offer you a bit of peace? Author Donald Altman shares some amazing ways to get that clarity you are looking for in his book ONE MINUTE MINDFULNESS.

Realizing that there is no "one size fits all" approach to the problems we face and how to fix them, Altman gives us a variety of ways that we can try in just 60 seconds to refocus, regroup and realize the preciousness of the moment. That was one of the first things I realized as I read the book: so much can be accomplished and avoided if we only enjoy the time and place we are in right now.

Whether it is avoiding some of the negativity in the people and online social circles we come in contact with or reminding yourself of the greatness inside, there is alot we can accomplish if we only readjust our thinking.

This is the kind of book you can enjoy by yourself or with your family and friends. Either way if you read it and take the "Practice" segments on in your life there is sure to be a difference made. This moment doesn't have to define that which is to come.

Every moment counts, so let the next 60 seconds mean something special for you.

Format: Paperback
What I really appreciate about this book is that it brings mindfulness down to earth in a way fits my hectic life. I am so busy right now that I can't read much at one sitting, but you don't have to. You can read this book one-minute at a time and get something substantial and meaningful from it. I particularly liked the section on "One-Minute Mindfulness for Relationships and Love" that was filled with simple, powerful ways to connect with others. The book is rooted in real stories and direct exercises that you can do in one minute (or less). One-Minute Mindfulness proves that you don't need a traditional meditation practice to get centered and find a sense of peace and joy. This book can change your life and your choices in the next minute. (By the way, if you liked Tolle's "The Power of Now" but wanted to have more useful, practical tools, then I definitely recommend this book!)

It's not often that the title stands up to the content. This book does. The practices are easy and yes, you can do them in 60 seconds. Truly being aware takes practice but this book shows you how easy it is to incorporate mindfulness into our daily lives. The health benefits are numerous, the changes you'll experience in your life, well, they're priceless. Can't say enough great things about this book. If you really want to make changes in your life, quickly and easily, then this is the book that will help you do just that.

This is a very helpful book for all of us who struggle with trying to slow down and bring true presence into the activities of our busy lives. Donald Altman show how we can all do this, in one moment increments, sprinkled throughout our day. I love how practical this book is, and how Donald Altman writes in a tone that makes me feel I'm listening to a wise and kindly uncle, an uncle who has a twinkle of gentle humor in his eye.

It doesn't matter what page you turn to, you can't go wrong with this book. Every page offers something positive and insightful. The "practices" are helpful and I like how book is broken up into 5 sections that address all aspects of our lives. This is a true book of wisdom condensed into 168 pages.

With the hustle and bustle of life, we forget to think of ourselves. Give yourself just one minute of your day to read a passage from this book. It can really sets a tone on how you will conquer the rest of your day or even week. This book brings wisdom and helps you find some peace in our crazy, busy world. I read this book the first thing in the morning so I have a good thought for the day and meditate on the words of wisdom. It's interesting to me that I have to remind myself to just 'be'. I think we all need that and this book can get you back on track.
