I enjoyed the book. Obviously Barrie is a pro at coaching people to achieve their highest potential. She speaks to the reader in ways that give you confidence and inspire you to start meditating right away. At the same time, she’s realistic and she knows that to really achieve the benefits that mindfulness promises, there’s hard work to be done.
She writes, “The practice of mindfulness takes focus, commitment, and consistency. But remember, it is the practice that’s your destination—not the perfection of the practice."
Among other highlights, I enjoyed her comprehensive summary of the benefits of mindfulness grounded in numerous studies from Harvard and other top research institutions. She makes a very sound case for the benefits and if you have any doubt, she’ll fill you with confidence that meditation has officially graduated from the woo-woo category.
The book also offers practical guidance you can act on immediately. For example she gives a great explanation of breathing exercises and the associated science.
One thing I’ve noticed is that people struggle with understanding how to make progress in meditation. Barrie speaks directly to this issue and provides a solid framework or description of how you progress in meditation and how you can practice it in a secular context and still get all the benefits.
Based on the popular and compelling work of psychologist and best-selling author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Barrie lays out a complete protocol for how to achieve your flow state at work whether you love or hate your job. Her basic point is that you spend so much of your life energy at work and it should reward and nourish you. Finding your flow through mindfulness is the way to do that. She goes on to help you understand this exalted state by demystifies flow and bringing it within reach.
I think this book will also be helpful for people who really don't like their jobs. She actually helps you plan an exit strategy but also presents mindfulness as a sort of metaphysical slipstream where you can transcend your mundane frustrations and embrace your work in a mindful context.
This is a valuable resource for aspiring and novice mindfulness practitioners and well worth the negligible price for the ebook. I highly recommend it.
As a practitioner of mindfulness meditation for many years, I can say that this little book is fantastic.
Not only will you find the history of mindfulness, but you'll find information about affirmations, places to meditate, and many ways to be mindful- from making tea, to exercise, even at work.
If you want a great primer on mindfulness meditation and more, this is your book. Barrie is the real-deal.
