There s a revolution transforming schools, workplaces, psychotherapy practices, and pain clinics across the country. It s called mindfulness meditation. And it s proving so effective for relieving stress, depression, hypertension, and chronic pain that the NIH recently launched more than 50 studies in a single year to confirm its further potential to treat attention disorders, OCD, and even drug addictions. Clinical psychologist and meditation teacher Tara Brach has been at the forefront of mindfulness-based therapy since its inception. Now, with Mindfulness Meditation, she offers nine of her most effective guided sessions: a progressive training sequence for cultivating inner calm, awareness, forgiveness, self-compassion, and empathy.
