This book is a real gem! As a Mindfulness teacher, I'm constantly on the look-out for good quality resources that I can pass on to my students and that will help me to deepen and strengthen my own practice; Maitreyabandhu's book combines substantial insight and experience with humorous common sense and a firm grounding in the real world.

Written in an easily accessible style by the leader of the London Buddhist Centre's "Breathing Space"(no relation!) programme and following the now well-established 8 week format, the book takes us step by step through a process of becoming more conscious and appreciative of the world around us and of our own inner processes and experience. What I particularly like is the emphasis on integrating Mindfulness into all aspects of our daily lives, from organising ourselves and completing unfinished business, to appreciating art and nature and exploring relationships with others. The spiritual dimension is there throughout, and the book has a solid foundation in Buddhist teachings, but you definitely don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit, and it's very much left to the reader to decide how far they want to engage with the spiritual aspects of the practice.

A great addition to the rapidly-expanding Mindfulness library, and a "must" for anyone interested in living a fuller, richer life.

Very well-written course on mindfulness, which, in my opinion, is suitable both for those new to mindfulness and for those looking to deepen their existing practice. It was genuinely an inspirational read for me.

Good for beginners. Good for ongoing reflection on practice. Good for linking us with all other beings in our shared humanity. Thoughtful about implications of this in our living, values and behavior and sharing our 'merit' with others

I have read this book twice now and am in the process of following the practical exercises as I read it for the third time. Wouldn't be without it.

Easily written - just the right amount of words! Lots of exercises to keep me busy - only just starting it, doing it slowly and mindfully.
