Mindful Recovery makes the breakthrough teachings of mindfulness accessible to those who struggle with addiction. It is an extremely wise and helpful book--clearly the best of its genre and written by authors who obviously know how to reach out to their audience. Mindful Recovery teaches the reader how to use meditation both on and off the cushion as the basis for a more fulfilling life--bringing calm awareness into work, relationships, and emotions. The only problem I have with the book is that its suggestions are equally helpful to those who do not struggle with addictions, yet the title and marketing do not target these broader audiences. This is a must read. As a surprisingly refreshing alternative to other approaches to addiction, I think it could easily become a classic in the field.

An excellent read for all who want to go beyond the 12 step recovery process. An in-depth look and the mechanics of spiritual recovery; going further than most Western models of addiction and recovery. I thoruoghly enjoyed this book and wil recommen
This book is an excellent reference for all who have explored recovery process and want more; more insight, more knowledge, and more spiritual guidance. The authors include and compare(in a way that avoids criticism) 12 step processes and how the theory they support does add to the 12 step process of recovery. As a recovering addict who continues to explore all avenues of growth and knowledge, I highly recommend this reading. I feel it expanded my knowledge of the addiction process and how one can add to their development of inner automomy and comfort.

A must for anyone looking for lasting change.
The reader is welcomed into Eastern Philosophy through "doorways." Each doorway provides information and techniques which can be implemented immediately. Following the steps, you are able to experience changes while reading the book. Although "Recovery" is in the Title, this book is for anyone wanting a deep understanding of why they feel the way they feel. More importantly, for anyone wanting real change by attacking issues at the root, not merely masking or compartmentalizing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
