The mindfulness trend has become a global phenomenon in a few short years. As more people add the practice of mindfulness to their daily routine and personal toolkit, though, many have lost sight of the practice's roots. 

With Heartfulness, Dr Stephen McKenzie, a leading mindfulness author and teacher, brings us back to the basics by connecting the heart with mindfulness to become "heartfulness". The paths to a fulfilling life are shown and demonstrated in an approachable, encouraging way.

To be "heartful" is to be connected with ourselves and with other people, therefore being truly alive, happy, without stress and at peace. You'll achieve this by following along with chapters on:


Heartfulness is filled to the brim with anecdotes, subjects to contemplate, and lots to read and enjoy. This is a gentle and warm book that seeks to bring the reader home to a happy state and proves that mindfulness and like minded practices are neither buzzwords or fads.
