Worry and anxiety, confusing desires or negative thoughts are among the everyday hindrances a person with AS faces. This book takes the...

  • Capturing Mindfulness

    Capturing Mindfulness

    by Matthew Johnstone

    Matthew Johnstone’s latest book Capturing Mindfulness, is a natural follow on from his last book Quiet the Mind which came out in 2012. It’s a book on how to create mindfulness through photography. Matthew has been practicing what he terms ‘photopresent’ for the last 15 years and believes that next to meditation, this is one of the most creative and enjoyable ways to attain mindfulness in day-to-day life. The very essence of photography; after all, is all about focus and capturing ‘the moment’. Matthew is fascinated by light, colour, composition and...
