4.0 out of 5 stars Mindfulness made easy, with depth if you want it, 3 April 2010
This review is from: The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness (includes Guided Meditation Practices CD) (Paperback)
This is a tricky book because it essentially tries to help you see and be in the world in a completely new way. A way that's more helpful for dealing with unhappiness. This way is 'mindfulness'; a sort of being in the moment, being more self-aware, being with your experiences as they unfold. While esoteric and impractical sounding, the book opens you up to mindfulness gradually via quotes, discussions and, most importantly, various exercises. These range from paying attention while eating to several different types of meditation and body awareness exercises.

My favorite is the 3 minute breathing exercise which neatly sums up much of the mindfulness practice. This included on the CD that comes with the book, so can be added to an i-pod and listened to for those emergency mindfulness boaster sessions if need be!

While the book can often frustratingly circle around the topic of mindfulness at times, its commitment to teaching via practical sessions must be commended.
