Finding a Way of Well-Being
About the Book
Mindfulness is the latest buzzword for anyone seeking to ease the stresses of 21st-century life. Yet, despite what superficial approaches to the practice may lead us to believe, mindfulness is not a cosy strategy for 'glossing over' life's difficulties.
In this book, Ed Halliwell examines how mindfulness can help us recognize and let go of our unhelpful biases and habits, enable us to live more at peace with stress and uncertainty, cultivate cheerfulness and compassion and lead us towards our life's calling - if we are willing to journey to the heart of the practice. Having come to mindfulness in a bid to be rid of anxiety and depression, Ed found a path that transformed his life in a way he hadn't expected. A former magazine editor, his way of life has changed, and he now teaches mindfulness.
Into the Heart of Mindfulness offers Ed's experiences as inspiration. With practical advice, taster exercises and a refresher candour, he explores how working with the realities of our minds, bodies and day-to-day existence- rather than striving for positive results - can, paradoxically, help us rediscover a richly nourishing, deeply textured life.
