Review

"Williams and his international team of authors provide insight into the healing power of so-called 'awareness' through which people can escape the wearisome ruminations of the obsessed mind, befriend alien feelings, and come more alive in themselves. The book is accompanied by a CD with meditations that can help the listener enter the present moment, own more fully their physical context, and stand back from the flow of their thinking and feeling...A practical volume that bears the authority both of contemporary psychology and the age old spiritual practice of meditation." - New Directions "Every word in this affordable paperback seems to embody the gentleness and the spirit of openness that one brings to the practice of MBCT. It is therefore an ideal tool for guided self-help...Invaluable for all non-professionals and therapist alike, The Mindful Way through Depression takes the reader step-by-step on a journey of exploration...Just get the book, get your bottom on the cushion and read it." - Florian Alexander Ruths, British Journal of Psychiatry, December 2007 "Williams and his international team of authors provide insight into the healing power of so-called 'awareness' through which people can escape the wearisome ruminations of the obsessed mind, befriend alien feelings, and come more alive in themselves.
