This review is from: The Mindful Way through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappines: Guided Meditation Practices for the Mindful Way Through Depression (Hardcover)I completed the 10 week course with the author Mark Williams and can confirm that he is an excellent role model for mindfulness. This book will become a classic in the way the 'green' book is becoming ( Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression ). Mindfulness techniques have been around for over 2000 years and whilst they can appear deceptively simple, the mind finds many ways to avoid doing them! The enclosed CD has 77 minutes of different practices. For anyone wanting to learn more about thoughts being just thoughts and how to develop new ways of responding to them and thus lifting the veil of depression, this book is a great place to start.
