From the authors of the bestselling The Mindful Way through Depression—which explores how mindfulness can break the cycle of chronic unhappiness—this carefully constructed workbook shows the reader how to build a mindfulness practice in 8 weeks. Basic mindfulness principles and facts about depression and other common emotional problems are combined with specific mindfulness exercises to try on a daily and weekly basis, plus a wealth of interactive features that encourage and motivate. Readers will be drawn in immediately by self-assessments, reflection questions and exercises with spaces to jot down notes, worksheets for keeping track of progress, and quotations and questions from others going through the program. Each week's guided meditations are provided on the accompanying MP3 CD and can also be downloaded by purchasers.
