Mindfulness in eight weeks

The revolutionary 8 week plan to clear your mind and calm your life

This 8 week step-by-step guide to Mindfulness is the first ever publication of a hybrid of the two most popular approaches to Mindfulness currently sweeping the world.


Recommended by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Excellence and prescribed by the NHS, Mindfulness is fast becoming a revered and popular method used by healthcare professionals and lay people alike to help alleviate anxiety, depression and stress. Expert instructor, Michael Chaskalson – who has over three decades of practical experience with mindfulness and co-taught the programme for some time with John Teasdale (one of the founders of MBCT) – brings new ease to the art of practising it in this do-it-yourself programme.


In the book – which is endorsed by bestselling market-leader Finding Peace in a Frantic World author Mark Williams as well as by John Teasdale, Michael guides the reader in an eight week course that is a hybrid of the two most popular approaches: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), offering an easy-to-follow course that you can practise in your own time and within the comfort of your own home.


Broken down into eight weeks (and with audio materials available to download to support home practice) reading this book is as near as you can get to bring a participant on a teacher-led mindfulness course without actually being on one. With step-by-step instructions carefully coordinated for each week, Mindfulness in Eight Weeks promises to have you up to speed in under two months.
