Transforming my Life,
This review is from: Living Well With Pain And Illness: Using mindfulness to free yourself from suffering: The Mindful Way to Free Yourself from Suffering (Paperback)
When l discovered Vidyamala's book l was on crutches, in chronic pain. The meditations took me deeper into this method of helping the mind deal with difficulties, and l use both everyday. l also use them to teach others how to deal with stress, and physical and/or mental pain.
Vidyamala gives a wide variety of advice. She advises pacing oneself each day to deal with tiredness; Gentle exercises to stop the body from feeling sluggish; and above all, widening the range of interests in one's life. She calls this "bigger container" (ABC) pointing out that a hundred interests are more helpful than merely ten.
I can honestly say that Vidyamala has transformed my life and my relationships.
