This revolutionary 8 week
step-by-step guide to Mindfulness is the first ever publication of a hybrid of
the two most popular approaches to Mindfulness currently sweeping the world.
Recommended by the UK's
National Institute for Health and Excellence and prescribed by the NHS,
Mindfulness is fast becoming a revered and popular method used by healthcare
professionals and lay people alike to help alleviate anxiety, depression and
stress. Expert instructor, Michael Chaskalson - who has over three decades of
practical experience with mindfulness and co-taught the programme for some time
with John Jeasdale (one of the founders of MBCT) - brings new ease to the art
of practising it in this do-it-yourself programme.
In the book - which is
endorsed by bestselling market-leader Finding Peace in a Frantic World author
Mark Williams as well as by John Teasdale, Michael guides the reader in an
eight week course that is a hybrid of the two most popular approaches:
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive
Therapy (MBCT), offering an easy-to-follow course that you can practise in your
own time and within the comfort of your own home.
Broken down into eight weeks
(and with audio materials available to download to support home practice) with
chapters such as "Mindfulness for the Breath", "Staying
Present" and "How Can I Best Take Care of Myself", reading this
book is as near as you can get to bring a participant on a teacher-led
mindfulness course without actually being on one. With step-by-step instructions
carefully coordinated for each week, Mindfulness in Eight Weeks promises to
have you up to speed in under two months.

Pain, suffering and stress
can be intolerable - but it doesn't have to be this way.
Mindfulness for Health
reveals a series of simple practices that you can incorporate into your daily
life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical
trials show that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription
painkillers and also enhances the body's natural healing systems. Mindfulness
can also reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia
that can arise from chronic pain and illness.
Mindfulness for Health is
based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her
cope with the severe pain of spinal injury. Taught at Breathworks in the UK -
and its affiliates around the world - this programme has helped tens of
thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Breathworks' pioneering
approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon
Kabat-Zinn and Professor Lance McCracken of King's College London.
The eight-week programme at
the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. It is particularly
effective for the biggest causes of pain - back problems, arthritis, migraine
and diabetes but works equally well for cancer (and its associated
chemotherapy), heart disease, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, lupus, chronic
fatigue syndrome, IBS, labour pain and even tinnitus. You will be surprised by
how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving you able to live life to the
