This 8 week step-by-step guide to Mindfulness is the first ever publication of a hybrid of the two most popular approaches to Mindfulness currently sweeping the world.
Broken down into eight weeks (and with audio materials available to download to support home practice) reading this book is as near as you can get to bring a participant on a teacher-led mindfulness course without actually being on one. With step-by-step instructions carefully coordinated for each week, Mindfulness in Eight Weeks promises to have you up to speed in under two months.

Through simple mindfulness meditation, learn to live in the moment and enjoy a life that is more vivid, awake, connected and true.
Most of us operate on auto-pilot much of the time, passing through the present moment with our mind either caught up in the past or straining toward the future. Through mindfulness meditation, an ancient Buddhist practice, Anna Black shows you how to intentionally pay attention to your daily experience.
Work-related stress is an all-too-common part of modern life. The rise of digital media means that many people never really “switch off” from work and the culture of presenteeism causes us to spend more time at work than ever before.
Many workers spend a lot of time either ruminating on past work stress or worrying about future work-related problems. By applying the principles of mindfulness – an ancient Buddhist practice – to our working lives, we can become aware of our habitual negative thoughts and behaviours and learn to recognise and manage the warning signs of stress. Anna Black suggests short and simple meditations that can be used throughout the working day to strengthen focus and concentration, enhance working relationships and improve empathy – all of which help you to perform well and keep calm at work, whatever your job.
