Overview


Techniques to deal with stress and foster a calmer outlook on life are offered through this series of meditations that encourage mindfulness, a concept that involves living in the moment, paying attention, and simply being rather than constantly doing, in daily life. Meditations that vary in their focus—on a simple phrase, the rhythm of breath, a part of the body—have been used for stress management and in hospitals where patients meditate to improve their health or feel better despite their illness.
 

Este es un excelente manual práctico, no sólo para la meditación de la atención plena y la curación, sino para lograr la meta de integrar la práctica espiritual en la vida cotidiana. Una admirable sección intermedia reúne clara evidencia científica y anecdótica relativa al estado mental y al estado físico. Y, al la vez que subraya el potencial curativo de la meditación, sugiere que la disciplina sirva, no como un medio sino como un fin.
