Mindful Compassion by Paul Gilbert
Mindful Compassion by Paul Gilbert
Mindfulness is so 'sexy' at the moment that I really think there is a danger of oversell, that some will come to think of it as a panacea for all human distress, and then become disillusioned when they find that it isn't.

I think the balance here is about right, though for my tastes I prefer something a little more pronounced. However, these bags provide a bright, zesty tasting cuppa and I would buy again.
