More and more of us are suffering from the stresses and strains of modern life. Mindfulness is an increasingly popular discipline that can not only help alleviate the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression brought on by the pressures of our daily existence but can actually bring calm, joy and happiness into our lives. In The Little Book of Mindfulness Tiddy Rowan, herself a practitioner for over 30 years, has gathered together a seminal collection of over 150 techniques, tips, exercises, advice and guided meditations that will enable people at every level to follow the breath, still the mind and relax the body, whilst generating and boosting a feeling of well-being and contentment that will permeate every aspect of everyday life. The perfect little gift to bring lasting happiness and peace for friends and family.
Tiddy Rowan practised meditation for the first time in 1971 and has been a student ever since. A lifelong interest in all aspects of mind development and the ancient wisdom of such teachers as Lao Tzu, Buddha and other Zen masters, to the current teaching of Thich Nhat Hanh, gives her a broad appreciation of how philosophical, spiritual and secular thinking combine in the practice of Mindfulness. Through a practice of simple techniques lasting but a few minutes each day, she finds an increased sense of calm and awareness, whether living a fast-paced urban life or time-out in a peaceful environment.
