The Little Book of Mindfulness is a pocket-sized guide to help you calm your mind and lighten your spirit. Mindfulness techniques will help you focus on the present, changing the way you think, feel and act by releasing your mind of all that is around you. As a result, you will de-stress and de-clutter your thoughts. In this invaluable book is a collection of inspirational quotes, key research findings, tips for how to get the most out of the practice and a variety of short activities. It can be opened at any page to help you center and balance your mind in a few quick and easy steps.
Tiddy Rowan practised meditation for the first time in 1971 and has been a student ever since. A lifelong interest in all aspects of mind development and the ancient wisdom of such teachers as Lao Tzu, Buddha and other Zen masters, to the current teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh, gives her a broad appreciation of how philosophical, spiritual and secular thinking combine in the practice of Mindfulness. Through a practice of simple techniques lasting but a few minutes each day, she finds an increased sense of calm and awareness, whether living a fast-paced urban life or time-out in a peaceful environment.
