For people of all faiths, this is a lovely introduction to mindfulness.
If you have been thinking about getting on the "mindful" train, this book explains why and how meditation can help reduce stress, break up old, negative thought patterns you thought you had to live with forever, and, overall, enhance your life.
I have recommended and/or purchased this book for many of my friends who are interested in learning more about the positive benefits of meditation and mindfulness.
This is an excellent companion to Dan Siegel's MINDSIGHT, Christopher Germer's excellent THE MINDFUL PATH TO SELF-COMPASSION, BUDDHISM FOR BUSY PEOPLE, and anything by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
I am a long-time meditator and often use the guided meditations in this audio if I'm having trouble with the monkey mind and want a little "re-grouping" to my practice. Whether leaning toward Buddhism, wanting to use mindfulness as a compliment to your established religious preferences, or simply wanting to become a fuller human in this oh-so-wonderfull-yet fraught world, this is a great book. Very inspiring toward being more aware, being kinder, being more forgiving. Especially to yourself!
