  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: The Process and Practice of Mindful Change 2ed

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: The Process and Practice of Mindful Change 2ed

    by Steven Hayes

    Since the original publication of this seminal work, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) has come into its own as a widely practiced approach to helping people change. This book provides the definitive statement of ACT—from conceptual and empirical foundations to clinical techniques—written by its originators. ACT is based on the idea that psychological rigidity is a root cause of a wide range of clinical problems. The authors describe effective, innovative ways to cultivate psychological flexibility by detecting and targeting six key processes: defusion, acceptance, attention to the present moment, self-awareness, values,...

  • Asperger's Syndrome and Mindfulness: Taking Refuge in the Buddha

    Asperger's Syndrome and Mindfulness: Taking Refuge in the Buddha

    by Chris Mitchell

    Understanding who you are can be a lonely and difficult process following the diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome (AS). Asperger's Syndrome and Mindfulness illuminates this experience as an empowering path of discovery through the teachings of Buddhism. Chris Mitchell draws parallels between the experience of his own journey towards personhood through AS and the spiritual tenants of Theravada Buddhism, as outlined through the Eightfold Path, a guideline to personal development. Worry and anxiety, confusing desires or negative thoughts are among the everyday hindrances a person with AS faces. This book takes the...

  • Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom

    Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom

    by Rick Hanson

    *If you change your brain, you can change your life.* Great teachers like the Buddha, Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, and Gandhi were all born with brains built essentially like anyone else's--and then they changed their brains in ways that changed the world. Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain, and more and more, we are learning that it's possible to strengthen positive brain states. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of mindfulness practice, you too can use your mind to...

In this practical and inspiring book, Lorraine Murray shows parents, teachers and youth workers how to lead fun and peaceful meditation sessions with children. Lorraine explains a variety of different...

  • 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...

  • CD: Mindfulness Meditations for Teens

    CD: Mindfulness Meditations for Teens

    by Bodhipaksa

    Not so long ago, many people thought that meditation involved dropping out of society and joining a cult. But most of us don’t want to drop out of society — we just don’t want it messing with our heads. Mindfulness is a way of holding on to your sanity when life seems to be going out of its way to make you go crazy -- with people who don't understand you, work, schoolwork, stress, and scheduling challenges that would baffle a super-computer. Studies have shown that teens who meditate...
