Smiling Mind: Mindfulness Made Easy
Smiling Mind provides personal insight into the practice of mindfulness meditation. Based on a 2,500 year old Buddhist practice called Vipassana, mindfulness meditation is a form of meditation designed to develop the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience and compassion.
Coming from a firm belief that mindfulness can take people to a more positive, happy and emotionally aware place, the authors demonstrate how this can be achieved in all areas of our lives - our work, relationships, families and parenting. They explain what "switching on" or being mindful is and how it works. They bust those myths we tell ourselves that keep us from being truly happy and free. Smiling Mind is full of ideas, advice, practical tools and inspiration to lead a life that is fulfilling, passionate and emotionally healthy which in turn means we can build thriving, happy and successful communities.
