Somewhat helpful as an alternative to prosac.

When I first started reading this, I thought to myself: "I don't get it. It's all over the place; what are they trying to do here? 'fierce contemplatives'--what the heck?" After awhile, though, I relaxed into it and realized that each author was approaching the topic of mindfulness from a slightly different perspective. While some chapters were very meaningful to me, different chapters will be more meaningful to others.If you're thinking about incorporating mindfulness into your life and aren't sure where to start, this would be a good introduction to the practice and its benefits and will familiarize you with different methods of practice. Each chapter is short and provides a brief explanation of the authors' points of view along with advice about how to start your own practice.Note that while the Buddhist roots of mindfulness are acknowledged, the overall tenor is very secular/non-ecclesiastical.This review is based on a digital ARC received via NetGalley.

These short pieces by many practitioners of Mindfulness will give you a new look at yourself and those that you interact with daily. We are too busy and need to take that time to be and listen.
