This is actually the second book we’ve produced together. The first book, Mindfulness for Challenging Times, was born spontaneously in response to the sudden lockdown we faced here in Europe and around the world in the face of a global pandemic.
This book is different. We realised stories were most inspiring. Stories that shared how people meet their challenges and overcome them.
So, why not have a whole book sharing how mindfulness has transformed our lives? We hope the stories will inspire you to either give mindfulness a go or to encourage you to explore mindfulness more deeply.
In addition to the text, the book includes access to over 27 guided mindful audio tracks for you to listen to, recorded by 20+ teachers, accessible online via computer or even your phone. They’re an important part of the book, helping you to experience the mindful exercises that the authors describe.
