Reviews

"Bazzano has done much to further a deeper understanding of mindfulness for therapy, in part by refusing to allow it to languish in a psychotherapeutic ghetto or rest complacently in a cloister... Though it remains unclear what mindfulness will become, some intriguing indications of its future can be found in this necessary and timely book." - Self & Society

"Draws a distinction between 'problem-solving' and 'spiritual' mindfulness." - The Church Times

"As a genuine attempt to explore an antidote to 'the literalism of McMindfulness as a quick fix for the anxieties of late-capitalist society', this collection is almost ahead of its time: a new wave of conversations that ironically hark back to pure origins concerned with our wholehearted presence, could now be seen as controversial in our 'mindful' fix it quick culture. The collection deftly draws upon ideas from Buddhism, Philosophy, Psychology, Culture and Psychotherapy and Bazzano demonstrates his adeptness to select, collate and create a rich and harmonious choir of contemporary voices for our consumption." - Julie Webb, The Natural Health Centre, UK

"This book is a tour-de-force that explores the meeting of mindfulness and psychology/psychotherapy. Its editor, Manu Bazzano, and the other authors are united in their insistence that mindfulness is not just an add-on to psychotherapeutic work; rather, it is a way of being that is central to the psychotherapeutic process." - Therapy Today
