CD Mindful Way Through Depression (4 CDs)
If you’ve ever struggled with depression or know someone who has, take heart: mindfulness practice is a simple, powerful way to naturally break depression’s self-perpetuating cycle. In The Mindful Way Through Depression, four leading researchers present insightful lessons drawn from both Eastern meditative traditions and cognitive therapy about how to triumph over this illness and, more importantly, how to prevent it from striking again. Included are:
– The “quicksand effect” of depression – why our attempts to think our way out of it can backfire.
– The biology of depression – how meditation can rewrite neural structures and heal chemical imbalances
– What to do when you’re not depressed – techniques for cultivating an abiding sense of joy that will protect you from recurrence.
This is a 4-CD set. The first 3 contain a reading of the book while the 4th contains mindfulness meditations guided by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
The book A Mindful Way Through Depression is available in the Mind-Body section of this website.
