Here is what I'm most excited about. To quote the authors:
"After reading this book you will know:
• How to deepen and support your own mindfulness practice
• How to set up and start a six-week Introduction to Mindfulness class for your group
• How to teach the class and the individual components with confidence" (p.2)
All I can say is WOW… This is exactly what I’ve been looking for so to have a book that can guide me step by step is truly a gift. And I should mention that I'm in the field of education so this book is really for anyone. As the authors say: "No matter what your background is, this book is the right place to plan, set up and start teaching mindfulness and compassion" (p.3). So exciting.
A Clinician's Guide to Teaching Mindfulness is such a comprehensive book and is jam-packed with practical knowledge, wisdom and guidance. I truly believe that anyone who gets a hold of this book will be thanking the authors for a very long time… I know I already am! ' Thank you Christiane and Greg for providing what is clearly a gift for those of us on the path.
Full disclosure I have sat and practiced with Christiane many times. She is a joy. I am biased.
