This book is not a quick-fix program, and doesn't pretend to be. It outlines the way that depression works, and how it hooks us. Then it offers practical exercises on how to experience life in a new way. How to get out of the "doing mode" and into the "being mode" where we open to each and every moment as it is. I've read many depression books and this is by far the best. It comes with a great CD and guided body scan, that lets the listener detach from her body and mind in a way that is truly liberating and healing.

    Helping Your Mind to Heal

    I have read through this book once, but want to go back and start working on the exercises after I've had a chance to deal with some of my chronic depression. I do believe the mind can be changed in a more healing and happier way with practice as guided by this book. I will continue to refer to this book and CD for guidance and future happiness.

    A helpful book

    I did find this book helpful, especially the guided meditation CD. I must admit that my depression had other physical aspects to it, since I have already done mindfulness meditation and therapy. But even so, this is helpful material.
