I was introduced to the practice of mindfulness during a very difficult period of my life where I seemed to have lost so much of my enthusiasm that life had become an empty shell. My counsellor at the time recommended this book to help me shed some light in the darkness and although I never belie...

This book presents an 8 week cognitive therapy based meditation course, including a CD of meditations to follow. I have borrowed the book, and don't feel I can keep it for 8 weeks, so I have not tried to work through the course, I just read through the book. I would think it quite a committment t...

This book is accessible. It is written in a style of self-help; medical literature reference are largely in the endnotes. Stylized anecdotes peppered through out, without any pretension as to cite any actual patient history. Perhaps it is just as suitable; these fictional first-named persons are...

I got the book out of the library before Christmas, but only tried actual mindfulness meditation once I’d signed up for the course. Without the course, I don’t thin...

This book is excellent, and came highly recommended. It's the sort of book you have for months before reading (until you get really desperate for answers) because you think you've already done some of the work just by owning it. I can't promise that you'll be a completely new person; that's not w...

I was drawn to this book after watching scientific evidence of its success on a TV programme, using MRI brain scans in relation to pain perception.
The book comes with a CD of guided meditations, to be used over an 8 week period. I found the practices a very useful introduction to MBCT (mindfulnes...

I did not enjoy this book at all. I also did not find it useful as it felt like it was patronising. I also found that thinking about the exercises and then attempting them actually made me feel panicky and more anxious which is the opposite effect of what it was trying to promote.
I know that "min...
