Summary

Neuroscience finds that spontaneous acts of mindfulness decrease stress, depression and anxiety, increasing overall well-being. But studies also show that purposeful mindfulness techniques, such as vipassana or mindfulness meditation, are even more powerful. Mindfulness meditation re-wires the brain in a way that decreases physical pain and psychological suffering.

Exploring Your Life: Mindfulness Meditation and Secular Spirituality examines the different roles we play in life, the power of mindfulness, and the concept that inner peace does not require religion or gurus, belief in God(s), the afterlife, or the supernatural.

Awesome encouragement

This book provides a great amount of information and encouragement that there is a real, lasting way to improve life. I will begin to meditate and listen to it again. The book doesn't actually teach meditation but does provide a strong stimulus to seek out how and to begin.

The narrator did a great job too.

Rubbish...

This book is more an autobiography, with some perks of self awareness. But, there is no value content in the end. If you want to learn secular meditation, get yourself on the seminars, that's the the all point.
