If you're thinking about it, this is a helpful place to start:http://www.audiodharma.org/series/1/talk/1835/

This is eminently recommendable: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mindfulness-practical-guide-finding-frantic/dp/074995308X/

I've stopped now

You've stopped being mindful?

WATCH OUT FOR THAT BUS

I found the CD which accompanies the book rainy mentioned above very helpful.

Meditating on Tarot Key #1 (The Magician) is a traditional method.

Very interesting.

"Mindfulness actually reduces the incidence of depression by half".

And that result is replicable.

Essential listening for anyone who has ever suffered depression.



I'll post this on the depression thread, rainy. Thanks ++ for posting it.

A proper boffin with his lab stuff on that link !

Anxiety control is another benefit

I can't remember how I'd come to know about this book - I haven't read it myself - and whether it was from this thread or somewhere else on NtT, or what:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mindfulness-practical-guide-finding-frantic/dp/074995308X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UT
F8&qid=1377254856&sr=1-1&keywords=mindfulness


But I've given it to a couple of people - based on the 200+ 5-star feed back on Amazon - who have now both said it's a great way to get started in a systematic way. It comes with a CD that takes you through a two-week programme.

LOOK OUT!

Anchorman - 23 Aug 2013 17:46:52 (#15 of 1001)

I've ordered that book wibbs

if it doesn't work I'll search you out and kill you!

:^)

rainwoman - 23 Aug 2013 17:48:27 (#16 of 1001)

It's a fantastic book!

WibbleAgain - 23 Aug 2013 18:23:48 (#17 of 1001)

You'll kill me for a book that costs less than £10, anchs? Life isn't worth living in a world like that... so you'll be doing me a favour.

WibbleAgain - 23 Aug 2013 18:25:19 (#18 of 1001)

I think maybe rainy recommended it on another thread, so all credit, etc. is due to her. Presumably she'll be killed too in that case.

FestinaLente - 23 Aug 2013 18:34:38 (#19 of 1001)

I've been doing this for years. I look back and see what an ANGRY person I used to be, and I can only be thankful I caught on to mindfulness when I did. And it's so effing easy!

SharkPatoo - 23 Aug 2013 18:36:46 (#20 of 1001)

I bought that book and never read it, maybe that's why it didn't work.
