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.

Mindfulness for health : a practical guide to relieving pain, reducing stress and restoring wellbeing by Vidyamala Burch ​

 
 
 

WINNER OF BEST BOOK (POPULAR MEDICINE) AT THE BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION'S BOOK AWARDS 2014

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 full again.​
