From leading meditation teacher Christina Feldman and distinguished psychologist Willem Kuyken, this book provides a uniquely integrative perspective on mindfulness and its applications.

Mindfulness – Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Psychology was recently published and provides in-depth case examples which illustrate how and why mindfulness training can help people move from distress and suffering to resilience and flourishing.

 

"This book provides a much-needed view of the lay of the land for mindfulness in the 21st century. Drawing on their many years of experience in practicing, investigating, and teaching within the Buddhist insight meditation tradition, on the one hand, and contemporary psychological science, on the other, Feldman and Kuyken offer a remarkably elegant and profound demonstration of what they name as the 'mutuality of learning and dialogue' between the two worlds. Their book shows clearly how and why such mutuality has transformative potential, and the conditions under which it may or may not flourish." Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford.

 

This book is a 'must read' for students and teachers of mindfulness-based approaches.Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford.
