Very good and engaging book.
A little bit of an alternative medicine jargon used, which should be evident from the title.

This review is from: Heal Thy Self (Paperback)
This is one of the most inspiring and insightful books on mindfulness that I have read - the author just oozes those qualities of kindness and gentle enquiry at the heart of the mindfulness approach.

He weaves in his own mindfulness experiences as they play out in his own life, specifically around his relationships with participants in the eight week mindfulness programme, and this is the fundamental message of his book: there is no difference between doctor and patient, teacher and student, we all learn and develop in that healing relationship when we commit to honesty and deep exploration.

At its core is the gentle acceptance of all that arises for all members of the programme, for the entire human experience, all of us moving between strength and vulnerability, ignorance and wisdom, struggle and grace. We "meet" many participants on the programme, those that leave, those with addictions, illnesses, pain and share with them painful, stuck places and moments of clarity and healing.

It is really a narrative of mindfulness in action and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guide for healers and want-to-be healers like physicians., 1 April 1999
By A Customer
Not only a description of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, but a sharing of what the healing relationship is about. A poetic guide to being with people in a nourishing, honoring way that encourages self-healing. Very easy to read, loved the poetry.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an intimate view of MBSR work by a trusted guide., 26 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
From the beginning it is clear that this isn't business as usual; this is personal, deeply personal. Saki weaves a fine tapestry with rich imagery, familiar poetry and robust recollection. With great depth of heart the reader can see into the core of MBSR work.
