My Thoughts 

I discovered meditation and mindfulness during the worst depression of my life. It's been beneficial for me regarding day to day mood, complex PTSD, and overall sense of gratitude. Meditation and mindfulness is one of the best things I've ever added to my life and I wish this sense of peace to everyone. 

I read the authors’ previous Mindfulness and found it extremely helpful as an addition to my own meditation. So I knew that I wanted to read Deeper Mindfulness as well. I'm glad I had the opportunity to do so. 

Though  I wasn't able to listen to the guided meditation tracks with the advance copy of this title, I found the overall message positive and will be getting a physical copy of this for my own. 

Recommended (if you're new to the authors work or mindfulness, I would suggest starting with their earlier work, Mindfulness). 

Thank you to Balance (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley for the DRC!


From the authors of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World, this anticipated follow-up allows both new and seasoned practitioners of mindfulness and meditation to deepen their practice and alleviate anxiety, stress, depression, and improve overall quality of life.

Based on Mark Williams's research into the therapeutic powers of mindfulness, and an extension of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT),
 Deeper Mindfulness continues the story told by Mark Williams and Danny Penman's runaway success, Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World. Where the author's previous book crafted the foundations necessary to live a happier and more fulfilling life, and has proven transformative for many people, many readers have asked whether there was anything more they could do to enhance their practice and resolve their remaining issues.

Deeper Mindfulness answers that question with a resounding, yes. it is possible to deepen the effect of mindfulness practice by focusing on what the authors describe as vedana, or "feeling tone," which targets certain core processes in the meditating mind. Over eight weeks, readers will learn to apply this practice to such unpleasant emotions and mood disorders as anxiety, depression, stress, and general unhappiness; when these unpleasant emotions evaporate, readers will be left with a calm space inside from which they can rebuild their lives.
