Overview

Toronto Method Mindfulness Handbook is a thorough guide to the fundamental theory and practice of contemporary mindfulness meditation. It is a stand-alone resource for both beginning and intermediate practitioners. Through six lessons, Ari Kaplan explains the importance of balancing present moment awareness with loving-kindness, curiosity with non-identification, and intentional practice with the spontaneous experience of pure beingness. His teachings are rooted in recognized research methods, such as the Toronto Mindfulness Scale and Emotion-Focused Mindfulness.

Reading or listening to this book is a meditative experience in and of itself and offers tools to:
- Enhance self-awareness and insight,
- Relieve stress,
- Notice biases and social conditioning,
- Alleviate mental suffering,
- Improve relationships, and
- Be naturally present, anytime.

Kaplan blends science, law and philosophy with personal stories. He illustrates the likelihood of avoidance or spiritual bypassing on the way, and how self-compassion practices can open a doorway to healing deep
