Combining knowledge from mindfulness and neurobiology with practical clinical experience, this book offers mindfulness exercises that everyone enjoys, no matter how difficult it is for them to focus. Mindfulness meditation allows people to enter a world where they experience greater competency over their thoughts, emotions, health, pain, and even relationships. These activities will help people discover these important benefit, and take up the practice at home.

After an introduction to the neurobiology behind mindfulness, each chapter contains activities with complete transcripts for clinicians to use in individual and group therapy. Unique to this book is the inclusion of transcripts for both adults and children. Regardless of your experience level and clientele, each therapist will find useful and engaging activities to easily incorporate into their practice.
