...this is a practical d.i.y. for those who might be interested in the Mindfulness Based Living Course which is offered by the Mindfulness Association. I know that hundreds of people have done and benefitted from this course so feel confident in suggesting that many more people, including you, will benefit from it.

Mindfulness is an innate capacity of the mind that can be trained to alleviate stress and low mood, to reduce the power of rumination and self criticism, and to evoke emotional well being and proactivity. The /Mindfulness Based Living Course/ is a practical guide to the development of a mindful approach to living in the modern world. Its distinctive feature is a compassionate approach to mindfulness that is based on many years of experience in the practice and delivery of mindfulness training by two of its leading exponents – the former Buddhist monk Choden and Heather Regan-Addis, both directors of the Mindfulness Association.
Formally a monk within the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Choden (aka Sean Mc Govern) has been a practicing Buddhist since 1985. He is an honorary fellow of the University of Aberdeen and teaches on their MSc Study Programme in Mindfulness.
Heather Regan-Addis began training in Mindfulness Meditation with Rob Nairn in 2004. She is a co-founder and director of the Mindfulness Association.
This book is remarkable. You have, more effectively than anyone I’ve read before, brought the patients’ experiences to life at the same time you’re teaching about the conditions and ways to cope. I’m not just moved by the patient profiles and stories, but I can feel them; that’s something the manuals completely lack - not just clinical pearls but the experience of the patient on all levels. Most important, this is a book about hope. The entire book is about hope. Anne Marie Albano, Ph.D., Professor of Medical Psychology, Columbia University Medical School
