Description

THE LIFE-CHANGING BESTSELLER - OVER 1.5 MILLION COPIES SOLD Authoritative, beautifully written and much-loved by its readers, Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world has become a word-of-mouth bestseller and global phenomenon. It reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to break the cycle of anxiety, stress unhappiness and exhaustion.

Co-developed by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, MBCT is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

By investing just a few minutes each day, this classic guide to mindfulness will put you back in control of your life once again.
