Synopsis

If you've ever struggled with depression, take heart. Mindfulness, a simple yet powerful way of paying attention to your most difficult emotions and life experiences, can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness once and for all. In The Mindful Way through Depression, four uniquely qualified experts explain why our usual attempts to "think" our way out of a bad mood or just "snap out of it" lead us deeper into the downward spiral. Through insightful lessons drawn from both Eastern meditative traditions and cognitive therapy, they demonstrate how to sidestep the mental habits that lead to despair, including rumination and self-blame, so you can face life's challenges with greater resilience. This enhanced e-book includes an audio program of guided meditations narrated by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Mental health professionals, see also the bestselling therapy guide by Drs. Segal, Williams, and Teasdale Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, Second Edition.

Mindful Way through Depression
Average rating
4.5 / 5
A scientific look at meditation.
January 11th, 2013
Interesting non-pharmacological way to deal with depression. The authors look at the problems of rumination and personal recrimination that affect many people today. They are "mostly" successful at presenting the ideas in the book scientifically and not philosophically. Their method of dealing with life's challenges requires discipline and a commitment of time, instead of drugs. It's not a quick fix. They encourage the readers to challenge reoccurring negative thoughts that can drag one down. They explain that "thoughts are not facts." It is a very interesting read, even if you don't subscribe to meditation of any form.
