Summary

Each morning most of us will spend about 10 minutes in the shower, 10 minutes making and eating breakfast but no time at all clearing our minds. Ten to Zen is a simple, effective and fuss-free guide to help you start your day in the right headspace to prepare for the challenges it may bring. 

Ten to Zen uses a combination of four therapeutic models - mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy - in a simple, easy-to-implement programme.

You will learn:

  • How to settle your mind quickly
  • How to focus and retrain your brain on dealing with stress
  • How to restructure unhelpful patterns of thinking 
  • How to develop ways of communicating that are more effective

Ten to Zen was developed by Owen O'Kane to encourage new principles for living based on his experience as a psychotherapist and his many years of caring for the dying in the field of palliative care, which has hugely influenced how he works and views life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

Brilliant !!! Unexpected pearl.

I’m going to say big thanks to the Author - for this brilliant manual / blue print.

This is probably the best book I’ve ever listened to on Audible.
Definitely in my top 5 list.
And I’m listening a lot.

It’s simple, not pretentious but very deep and explains few practical steps to calm down and get perspective on our life.

Thank you Owen !!!

Straight talking & accessible

This is well worth having, and revisiting.
I usually struggle to relate or want to complete these types of book/audio book. This is both human and helpful. Highly recommend.
