When a book is recommended by no other than Jon Kabat-Zinn, we certainly want to check it out.
Designed to break myths, explore the benefits and realities around meditation, this book gives plenty of information to everyone looking to improve their life, even if they're not keen on meditation. It's constructed so that it best suits people with no meditation background, but can also be a refresher for those already practicing it.
What makes it special?
It's a handbook into Vipassana (insight) meditation and mindfulness without being mysterious or complicated. The author's down to earth and humorous approach to this book makes it a joy to read. Describing what meditation is, what steps you should take to make the most of it, applying mindfulness in your everyday life with tons of practical tips on how to do it.
It's exactly as advertised, Mindfulness in plain English, and we can't recommend it enough to everyone, even if they don't intend to practice meditation.
