If you've ever struggled with depression or know someone who has, take heart: mindfulness practice is a simple, powerful way to naturally break depression's self-perpetuating cycle.
With The Mindful Way Through Depression
, four leading researchers present insightful lessons drawn from both Eastern meditative traditions and cognitive therapy about how to triumph over this illness - and, more importantly, how to prevent it from striking again.
Join these uniquely qualified experts to discover the power of Mindfulness - Based Cognitive Therapy, including:
The 'quicksand effect' of depression - why our attempts to think our way out of depression can backfire, and the strategy we can use for true freedom
The biology of depression - how meditation can rewrite neural structures and heal chemical imbalances
What to do when you're not depressed - techniques for cultivating an abiding sense of joy that will protect you from recurrence
A full CD of guided mindfulness meditations - for health and happiness, narrated by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Even successful treatments for depression too often stop short of providing you with a way to protect yourself from falling back into the downward spiral. With The Mindful Way Through Depression
, you will develop the tools you need to understand the core mental habits and patterns that lead to depression - and learn a proven method for creating genuine change that lasts a lifetime.
