    If you are interested in mindfulness or the work of Tara Brach I would definitely have a listen to this excellent, accessible book. Before listening to this I struggled to fully grasp the concept of compassion but the authors set it out so clearly here, with lots of examples and exercises that it has really helped me to understand the concept, and in the process myself and my thought patterns. Learning more about compassion has definitely been life changing for me and I would highly recommend this book as part of that journey.

    If like me, you are interested in neural plasticity, limbic training and mindfulness this is a must listen. I have only just discovered Rick Hanson's work and on the basis of this audio book have pre ordered his next book from Audible. What I found unique about this book is the very helpful explanations regarding neural plasticity and the excellent tips to help with rewiring the brain both during meditation practice and in everyday life, combined with short meditations. I have been using these methods and finding them extremely helpful. The only downside of this audio is that if you just wish to use the meditation practices you cannot access them seperately - each one comes with a commentary. However, this is a small criticism as it's an excellent, easily accessible listen.

    I have attended mindfulness courses and read and listened to many mindfulness books and this is definitely one of the best. If you are suffering from pain or illness and have never tried mindfulness, this is a perfect place to start. Vidyamala Burch has personal experience of chronic pain and her own use of mindfulness techniques to help with this is extremely inspiring. She narrates this beautifully- her voice is empathetic, soothing and inspiring. This is also a fantastic listen, if like me, you already have some experience of mindfulness meditation. The mindfulness exercises at the end of the book are some of the best I have found on audio.

    Pain, suffering, and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn't have to be this way. Mindfulness for Health reveals a set of simple practices that you can incorporate into daily life to relieve chronic pain, suffering and stress. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation is at least as effective as the most commonly prescribed painkillers and can be more powerful than morphine. Mindfulness can also significantly reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness.

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting - but it doesn't have to be this way. This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Common Core is not your typical education reform idea. It is a giant step towards the goal of federalized, corporate-run education, the underlying ambition of elitists in this country for more than 100 years. Parents and educators cannot rely on what they read or hear from the creators of the Common Core for the truth. One must dig deeper, past the lies, to understand the implications of the Common Core agenda.
