Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Overcome the cycle of depression by building life skills for resilience, peace, and lasting joy. Featuring guided meditations by Jon-Kabat Zinn.
From The Publisher*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 selfperpetuating cycle. With 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. Join these uniquely qualified experts to discover the power of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, including: • The "quicksand effect" of depression-why our attempts to think our way out of depression can backfire, and the strategy we can use for true freedom • 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 • A full CD of guided mindfulness meditations for health and happiness, narrated by Jon Kabat-Zinn Even successful treatments for depression too often stop short of providing you with a way to protect yourself from falling back into the downward spiral. With The Mindful Way Through Depression, you will develop the tools you need to understand the core mental habits and patterns that lead to depression-and learn a proven method for creating genuine change that lasts a lifetime
