"I am so pleased to see this inspiring work my friends Richard, Dennis, and Robert have done in making these mindfulness practices more accessible and useful for therapists, helping others to heal and become more fully functional members of our communities. This ancient inner technology is an exciting new wave bound to enrich the Western sciences of the mind."

"This is a much needed and useful book for clinicians interested in mindfulness by clinicians that are steeped in its practice. It is clear and comprehensive and includes a CD which is experiential. I recommend it for every clinician who's curious about mindfulness and wants to apply it in their clinical practice."
