Life with Full Attention: a practical course in mindfulness
In this eight-week course on mindfulness, Maitreyabandhu gently guides readers, teaching them how to pay closer attention to their experience. Each week, he introduces a different aspect of mindfulness – such as awareness of the body, feelings, thoughts and the environment – and recommends a number of easy practices; from trying out a simple meditation to reading a poem.
Featuring personal stories, examples and tempting suggestions, Life with Full Attention provides both a starting point and a great refresher.
