If you’ve ever struggled with depression or know someone who has, take heart: mindfulness practice is a simple, powerful way to naturally break depression’s self-perpetuating cycle.
With The Mindful Way Through Depression, four leading researchers present insightful lessons drawn from both Eastern meditative traditions and cognitive therapy about how to triumph over this illness—and, more importantly, how to prevent it from striking again.
Join these uniquely qualified experts to discover the power of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, including:
• The “quicksand effect” of depression—why our attempts to think our way out of depression can backfire, and the strategy we can use for true freedom
• The biology of depression—how meditation can rewrite neural structures and heal chemical imbalances
• What to do when you’re not depressed—techniques for cultivating an abiding sense of joy that will protect you from recurrence
• A full set of guided mindfulness meditations for health and happiness, narrated by Jon Kabat-Zinn
