Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world eBook: Prof. Mark Williams: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store. I've suffered from depression most of my adult life and in that time have been fighting it on numerous fronts: Antidepressants, exercise, dietary changes, CBT and of course enough self help books to start a small shop on the subject.

Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world eBook: Prof. Mark Williams: Amazon.co.uk: Kindle Store

But all of these have only helped with some of the symptoms, none have really cured my depression and none have gone to the heart of it and shown me WHY I am depressed. I had read in numerous places that meditation was considered beneficial and a particular branch of this, "mindfulness", even more so. But my first experiences with this subject were not good. Having bought the Dummies guide initially, it certainly had many "Aha! " moments but no structure and like most self help books soon went back on the shelf and out of memory. This book was different. But talk about one huge red herring! What this is all about is giving you the tools to gently, carefully, see how your entire thought processes work. How can something so gentle work so well?
