some time. Thought this little book might be interesting and give me a kick start. Found it would actually be a great tool for someone who wants to meditate but doesn't want to pay the often huge fees to learn how.
All in all, a brilliant little book.
I would recommend that you read it through from front to back a couple times first, then in your first week of using it, read it until to get to a part that needs practising, eg listening to the noises outside, inside the room and inside your head, put the book down and do it for a few minutes. Then pick the book up and go onto the next part. Put the book down, practice following the instructions for a few minutes then pick it up again and continue (you get the idea). I spend about 20 mins total. Once you have done it a few times, you start remembering things so don't need to read it so much. Eventually you will only need to refer to it say once a week, for a refresher and you will be able to practice your mindfulness without the help of the book. Good luck! Be happy.
Johnstone recognises the obstacles that ordinary people - and especially depressed people or those with low self-esteem - may encounter when trying to practise meditation. Gently and with humour, he helps the reader to overcome these blocks and benefit from the positive effects of taking the time to meditate every day.
