It explains mindfulness in a way that makes it clear and approachable, and by following the step by step guidance, I found myself , for the first time really able to meditae.
The book is very well written and contains clear explanations of each of the several forms of meditations.
The cd is extremely helpful and enabled me, for the first time , to actually be mindful, at first for short periods ,and gradulally for longer time.
I bought this book in effort to reduce high blood pressure and, indeed it helps !every day I meditate the mini- med. in the morning, and my days have become less stressfuls. In the evening I do the ' body scan meditation' which improved my sleeping at night.
I really recommand this book. It helpes me very much and improves my everyday life and my health .
One major problem, though, is with the formatting, which I've called tech support about: When viewing in "black" mode, there are white areas where text should be(and it is in sepia mode, while in white mode the background is simply ALL white.) In black mode, there are white rectangles as backgrounds for some paragraphs, and the text, which normally would show up as black in white/sepia modes, is *completely* invisible. I'd encourage the author, publisher, and Amazon to look into correcting this problem, as black mode is really easy on my eyes, especially late at night when I often read books like this.
Other than that technical issue, though, the book is highly recommended. To take away even one star on those grounds seems inappropriate, even though I want very badly for the issue to be resolved fully.
see how that can be. I have read other books on mindfulness, but this one clearly stands out for
the beginner in this sometimes puzzling but profound subject., I highly recommend this book for anyone,
whether religiously inclined or not, who wishes to deepen their understanding of the theory and practice
of mindfulness. Note that it is filled to the brim with practical suggestions.
