The mindfulness workbook was amazing. Hands down one of the best books on dealing with OCD that I have came across, so when I saw this little book by Jon I jumped to get it. It is 196 pages but about half the size of the mindfulness workbook. Which I personally like because I can pack it in my purses.
I really like the fact that this book reframe so to speak meditation, in that your not trying to clear your mind as much as observe it. As noted in the book having the goal to clear your mind can be futile for those wIth thought disorders.This is a great guide to go along with the mindfulness book and also as a stand alone text. Some of the exercise presented may be a little difficult for those who haven't meditated before to grasp. For me personally when learning to meditate it was always more helpful to have an actual voice recording or live person to help guide me and provide gentle reminders.But I think Jon and Shala did a very thorough job in communicating posture and what an overall meditation session should be.
I love the compassion section as well. For those dealing with mental disorders self compassion can be overlooked even when seeking therapy. But it is crucial to
Practice compassion. I feel a book like this is needed because it helps you deal with the other issues of guilt, and low self esteem that may come along with mental disorders.As most books help you deal with the disorder itself and not the (collateral damage)so to speak, it can cause in its presence.
Overall this book IMHO is not just for those with OCD but can be used for a wide range of mental disorders. And for those without a disorder but is easily anxious, and stressed.
All of his books are great. This one takes mindfulness and OCD to a much needed deeper level.
One of my biggest takeaways was the way meditation was explained. They explain it in such a way that it just clicked for me. I've been meditating daily since.
The OCD community needed this book. Thank you Jon and Shala.
