5.0 out of 5 stars Added depth and detail to the first edition, 6 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has provided friendly, but academically rigorous, guidance on delivering the NICE recommended Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course. Teaching points for each week are clearly explained with examples of how these may arise in the course of the group reflections during the sessions. There is extra guidance in this edition on the skill of Enquiry, and on the All-Day Session during the course, so it is well worth buying as an update to the first edition. Rich in depth and detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, compassionate, down to earth, 23 Nov 2012
I read the non-kindle version of this when my brother was dying, at my home, in the care of my family. The tone is clear and matter of fact, and not at all patronising. These times can be fightening because they take you into uncharted territory - practically and emotionally. This book gives a map of sorts with suggestions of what you may expect, what you may plan for, how you may talk to a dying person, etc whilst always understanding that everyone's experience of dying is unique. I am now a Trustee of a Palliative Care Charity. One of our first tasks has been to compile an information pack, and this book is part of it. Already I have received feedback to say how extremely helpful it is - even from those who are experienced professionals working with the dying.

Love these meditations - JKZ leads with such authenticity. There are, however some quite long pools of silence in some of the meditations which is good to be aware of before you start, lest you think the recording has suddenly stopped!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, useful, inspiring, 28 Sep 2012

I am a mindfulness teacher and have been using this book for the 8 week course I am currently teaching. I love its clear language and accessibility for all. The course participants also find it helpful. I have also used it professionally with clients with complex mental health needs. It has helped them to think about themselves and their issues differently and helpfully. But it is equally helpful for those of us just struggling to manage life in an increasingly mad world. It's a modern take on ancient wisdom and an accessible interpretation of some sophisticated science. Easy to read and understand.

JKZ is so very gifted at expressing simple truths about our levels of awareness, from moment to moment. I use this little book almost daily, to pick out a page and ponder on the wisdom expressed, and carry that with me throughout the day
