Publisher's Summary

No matter who we are, or what stage of life we are at, we all long for similar things; to be happy, connected with others, in touch with a sense of calm and peace, vital, alive and joyful. And we long to be able to ride out the tough patches that hit all of us from time to time with some degree of grace and dignity.
The good news is that we can fulfil these longings at any time, in any place. They are only a moment away, a breath away. We can learn how to be comfortable with our body, know and understand our mind, and love our heart. It isn't difficult, long-winded or time-consuming.
In doing so you'll feel happier in your own skin, less stressed, more confident, more capable and more at ease with yourself and life. This is what Mindfulness for Women is about. It is a practical guide to coming home to yourself in each present moment. To finding the ledge behind the waterfall.
To resting in the depths of the ocean rather than being tossed about by surface waves. Mindfulness is a potent antidote to anxiety, stress, depression, exhaustion and irritability. It leads to a greater sense of contentment and can also reduce addictive and self-destructive behavioural patterns.
This audiobook will enable you to experience the benefits for yourself. It's not designed as a lengthy course but is solutions-based. It's fast - evidence shows that a little bit of mindfulness goes a long way. It's also bespoke - you can read all of it cover to cover, or simply dip in and out, depending on what you want to focus on.
You can listen to whichever meditation track suits you at any given time and you can run tracks together if you want to meditate for longer periods. It's designed to suit your life and priorities now and well into the future.

A novice at mindfulness - but gained a lot from this purchase. Would recommend.

Although aware of mindfulness, this audio book was my first proper introduction to the topic. I listened to this book whilst pregnant and found the chapters really easy to listen to and the meditations enjoyable. I feel like this book has helped me to see things with a wider perspective and (I hope!) I am now more open mind. It has certainly helped me cope with the stress of having two little ones to look after!! Would highly recommend

Good introduction to mindfulness

What did you like most about Mindfulness for Women?

Good explanation and examples of why mindfulness is good for you. Good meditation exercises at end of book.


Any additional comments?

I think i needed more info as to HOW to incorporate mindfulness as a daily habit - this bit I struggle with. I already know it is a fantastic practice but don't do it often enough. It didn't really help me hear how wonderful other women found it. The meditation exercises at the end are good - would have liked more of these and of longer duration.
