“Many are familiar with mindfulness, meditation, and other contemplative practices, particularly in the relief of depression and similar negative affective states. But few understand why mindfulness works, or the actual transformative outcomes possible from this ancient tradition. Teasdale, one of the foremost cognitive scientists in the world, now unravels the mysteries of mindfulness, and in so doing lays out nothing less than a new and different way of living. This book is 'must' reading for clinicians, clergy, and all helping professionals who are seeking to maximize human potential.”

—David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University


“A remarkable book that I will contemplate and revisit many times. Teasdale addresses mindfulness as more than a technique or an end in itself—he reaches beyond applications to mental illness and stress and toward discovering the ways we can be the flourishing, happy, and responsive human beings we have the potential to be. I highly recommend this book to anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of mindfulness and how it can bring about profound inner change.”

—Christina Feldman, cofounder and teacher, Bodhi College


“This is a book about wisdom. There is a kindness, a wholeness, that you can sense as you make your way through these pages. Read the book from beginning to end and allow its fabric of knowledge to envelop you. You will not emerge unchanged.”

—Steven C. Hayes, PhD, Foundation Professor of Psychology, University of Nevada, Reno


“As a pioneer of mindfulness treatment for recurrent depression, Teasdale has always been one of our deepest, most creative innovators. In this tour de force volume, Teasdale once again offers illuminating insights and understanding. This is a penetrating and expansive work that tackles fundamental human experiences such as joy, compassion, suffering, and meaning. Teasdale presents a compelling discussion of the shortcomings of contemporary psychotherapy and argues that mindfulness can be truly transformative by strengthening the holistic-intuitive way of knowing. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in integrating psychological research and Eastern spiritual traditions. It promises to become required reading for training in mindfulness-based psychotherapy.”

—David A. Clark, PhD, Department of Psychology (Emeritus), University of New Brunswick, Canada
