About the Book
Mindful meditation has been practised extensively for over 2,500 years, this book draws from the richness of this ancient lineage while presenting the practices in a purely secular form, suitable for all.  The structure, content, and design of this book have arisen and evolved from over twenty years of continual teaching and study of these meditations. Practical methods to train the mind are introduced across eight main chapters, each beginning with the word ‘Mindful’. These chapters correspond to each week of the Mindful course. 

The book came from students requests who attend live courses, workshops and retreats, wishing to have a book, so that they could continue with their learning and practice at home. Written with the beginner in mind. This manual opens the door to the world of mindful meditation. If you already have some experience, The Guide will give you the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into your practice. Providing new and engaging practices which you can benefit from continually. The content within the pages will help you to train your mind and guide you into a mindful way of life.

If you are taking a live or online class in conjunction with this book, then the content will strengthen and enrich your learning. By practising regularly, and engaging practically with the instructions, you will be able to develop a stable mental foundation within your mind, for a peaceful and happy life. 

Covering a wide array of subjects, such as relationships, working, exercising, focusing, eating, relaxing and sleeping. You will find mindful practices, both short and extensive, that can be used throughout the day and night to strengthen and increase your well-being, mental health, and concentration.
