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 book came from students requests who attend my live courses, workshops and retreats, wishing to have a book, so that they could continue with their learning and practice at home. Using my training, combined with feedback received from the community, I present to you the most comprehensive introduction to mindful meditation that I possibly can.
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.
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. Mindful meditation is an inner pathway, meaning that the methods presented are inclusive and suitable for everyone.
Working gradually through the text, and engaging with the practices in the order presented, will lead to beneficial results. 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.
The Guide introduces eight mindful themes which encourage you gently into the present moment. Helping you move away from the stress and anxiety which arise from being preoccupied with the future and past, and empowering you to have an inspirational journey through 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.
By integrating these instructions with your daily activities, you will be able to develop the confidence needed to establish a mindful meditation practice, and consequently, enjoy all the benefits from this training. Following in the footsteps of the great meditation masters from the past, you too can come to enjoy serenity and bliss within your mind and bring harmony to your world.
