Mindfulness Book Reading
Can mindfulness live up to the claims that science makes about its healing powers? Is it really as effective as conventional medicine in treating chronic illness and pain? Vidyamala Burch and Danny Penman, authors of Mindfulness for Health, think so. Burch, founder of the internationally acclaimed Breathworks, knows the agony of trying to live with persistent pain. She knows the despondency of feeling helpless and hopeless as well as the joy and pleasure of finding a way to manage pain and live a full, happy and meaningful life. We’ll examine these claims and judge their validity. We’ll support our discussions with readings and videos.
