What is included with this book?


Maintaining a state of well-being and equanimity in the midst of serious disease is a challenge, but mindfulness can help make it possible. It is a process of bringing a fierce but loving attention to everythingthat arises in our mind and body. The simple techniques Elana Rosenbaum presents here are the same ones she uses with the people in her practice of mindfulness-based psychotherapy and stress reduction-and that she uses herself as a cancer survivor. These are methods that offer proof positive that it is indeed possible not only to "have a life" while you're seriously ill, but that the life can include satisfaction, ease, and happiness. This book includes a downloadable companion 60-minute audio program with seven simple mindfulness practices.
