Book Description

7 Nov 2013
'If you try to calm [the mind], it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline, you have to practise it.' Steve Jobs

More and more of us are suffering from the stresses and strains of modern life. Mindfulness is an increasingly popular discipline that can not only help alleviate the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression brought on by the pressures of our daily existence but can actually bring calm, joy and happiness into our lives. The practice has found champions in all walks of life from the Search Inside Yourself classes run by Google, to the importance Arianna Huffington puts on mindfulness in the workplace and the schools which are encouraging mindfulness to reduce exam stress.

In The Little Book of Mindfulness, Tiddy Rowan, herself a practitioner for over 30 years, has gathered together a seminal collection of over 150 techniques, tips, exercises, advice, meditations and further resources that will enable people at every level to follow the breath, still the mind and relax the body, whilst generating and boosting a feeling of well-being and contentment that will permeate every aspect of everyday life. The exercises in The Little Book of Mindfulness will lighten the mind and the spirit. The perfect little gift to bring lasting happiness and peace for friends and family.

Product Description

Review

'With a trillion 'must-dos' whizzing through our brains, peeking at a page of this engaging pocket-sized tome helps calm us down and pep us up.' --Sarah Stacey, You Magazine, Mail on Sunday, 17th November 2013

'Author Tiddy Rowan gathers together a collection of over 150 techniques, tips, exercises, advice, meditations and further resources that will enable people to follow the practice of mindfulness, boosting feelings of wellbeing and contentment in everyday life.' --Your Healthy Living, November 2013

'Being in the moment frees us from past regrets and frantic future planning; it makes us appreciate all that is around us now. This book balances meditations with quotations to make you breathe deeper. 'In the end, three things matter: how well we have lived; how well we have loved; how well we have learned to let you,' says Buddhist teacher Jack Kornfield.' --Sainsbury's magazine, February 2014

'With over 150 tips, this book will add a little calm to your morning commute.' --Stylist, 29th January 2014

'Author Tiddy Rowan, a meditation fan for more than 40 years, has put together 150 techniques, tips, exercises and jewels of advice in this little gem of a book, which is small enough to fit in your handbag, however much clutter you've got in there. It's one of those lovely books you can just dip into when you fancy a few wise words. And there are nuggets of wisdom aplenty, including offerings from everyone from Plate to Goldie Hawn. It also includes useful exercises to try in your quest for more mindful living. One of our favourites is how to make each little square of chocolate count by using the 'mindful tasting exercise.' Delicious!' --Spirit & Destiny, February 2014

'An excellent book' --Yoga magazine

About the Author

Tiddy Rowan practised meditation for the first time in 1971 and has been a student ever since. A lifelong interest in all aspects of mind development and the ancient wisdom of such teachers as Lao Tzu, Buddha and other Zen masters, to the current teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh, gives her a broad appreciation of how philosophical, spiritual and secular thinking combine in the practice of Mindfulness. Through a practice of simple techniques lasting but a few minutes each day, she finds an increased sense of calm and awareness, whether living a fast-paced urban life or time-out in a peaceful environment.

2.0 out of 5 stars The little book of missed opportunity 18 Mar 2014
By Bee of Good Cheer VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book could have been a helpful pocket guide to mindfulness, or it could have been a series of meditation prompts, and it would (to me) have lived up to its title. The fact that it's neither makes it pretty well useless. But it is pretty - a nice binding, well laid out, but it really is one of the type of books you would find on the counter of "ye olde gift shoppe" rather than in the self help section of a real book store.

I work for a charity that advocates mindfulness as helpful for the condition our members experience, but I certainly won't be recommending this book to them, sadly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quotations and technique tips to dip into 26 Feb 2014
By Robert Hardie VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a pocket sized, hard back book. It is made up of lots of quotations and sayings related to mindfulness. These are interspersed with tips and exercises to enhance your practice. You could read it from cover to cover, but it is more suited to being something you dip into to get some inspiration or nugget of information to enhance your mindfulness practice. It contains a surprising amount of material for a small book. Being hard backed means it is built to travel with you, so sit in your pocket and be ready to open and give you words to make you think, to encourage you and to help you in your day to day meditation. It would make a superb gift for someone you know who meditates. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply exquisite 3 Mar 2014
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This beautiful little hardback book is as beautiful inside as it is outside. The pages haven't been completely filled with text and it really emphasises the matter the book relates to. It slows down the whole reading of it which is really conducive to mindfulness seeing as it's all about slowing the thoughts and stresses down. There are quotes from all sorts of people that are tips to help with the process of learning this system of living that is just so good for a person to follow. The book is about the size of the Bibles that we find in hotel rooms and other similar places and for that reason it will be in my handbag and luggage wherever I go. I simply love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful 27 Feb 2014
By Adam Smith VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A useful book that combines useful quotations and practical exercises. It is pocket sized and slim so easily carried about on your daily rounds. Just a little bit basic so don't expect any great discussion of the subject. A very useful first step

By JK TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What a delightful little book. So pretty to look at and designed to be small enough to carry around in a pocket. The book has hard covers to protect it from damage and a ribbon marker to keep your place. There are 183 pages plus a few extra for contents etc. Each page offers little snippets from simple meditation to ideas for physical activity. There's something here to calm you down whenever those stress levels start to rise and it's a nice way to keep yourself in balance if you're attempting a full Mindfulness course.
