We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work and play … and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are.

Here, the teacher, scientist and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine offers a book that you can use in three unique ways: as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding “lesson-a-day” primer on mindfulness practice.

Beginning and advanced meditators alike will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices that Jon Kabat-Zinn has found most useful with his students, including:

  • Why heartfulness is synonymous with true mindfulness
  • The value of coming back to our bodies and to our senses over and over again
  • How our thoughts “self-liberate” when touched by awareness
  • Moving beyond our “story” into direct experience
  • Stabilizing our attention and presence amid daily activities
  • The three poisons that cause suffering … and their antidotes
  • How mindfulness heals, even after the fact
  • Reclaiming our wholeness

The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: Return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. But if you’ve tried it, you know that here is where all the questions and challenges begin. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable and loving connection with ourselves and the world.

The book includes a complete CD with five guided mindfulness meditations by Kabat-Zinn, selected from the audio program that inspired this book.

Nature still provides just as many effective remedies today as in times gone by. These remedies work as valuable medicine against all sorts of diseases and conditions … as well as the unpleasant side effects of modern life, such as stress, exhaustion and listlessness.

New science has acknowledged the positive properties of many medicinal herbs. This growing interest in medicinal herbs is accompanied by the desire to make simple preparations at home that benefit and address the common conditions and ailments of both men and women. When concerns affect children and teenagers, parents can offer onion packs if their offspring complain of painful ears, because they recognize that many of their grandmother's home cures are exactly that, cures. In fact, all age groups can and do benefit from nature's healing powers without a lot of effort. Throughout this wonderfully comprehensive book the easiest methods and the most popular applications for natural remedies are provided in detail. In the large recipe section there is a suitable recipe for almost any complaint.

Making use of the healing power of plants can be accomplished with little effort by producing home-style "remedies." The 68 recipes address different types of complaints, organized for every age and stage of life. Each remedy includes step-by-step instructions, enabling the least-experienced reader to make a suitable remedy with confidence. No prior knowledge required.

For small children, Marjoram Ointment works wonders: By applying a little under a child's sniffly nose, the sneezing stops quickly. Homemade Ginger Candy greatly alleviates the effects of morning sickness. Using a natural gargling solution of sage tea, apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil soothes a tickly, sore and difficult to swallow sore throat.

Recent studies from Europe show that nearly half the population is convinced that herbal remedies work and trust in nature's healing powers. This trend is mirrored here in North America. With this outstanding resource guide, dozens of useful and prescriptive home herbal remedies can be easily created.

There are only three essential ingredients required to create luxurious, soothing soaps: water, olive oil and caustic soda. Olive oil, the most beneficial oil for your health, is the primary ingredient. In cosmetics, it has been used since ancient times because of its virtues for glowing hair and skin. Rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins, it has the added benefit of being available virtually everywhere.

A number of wonderful extra ingredients customize and create a personal soap: beeswax, cocoa butter, clay, kaolin, seaweed, goat milk, egg yolks, and others. Some ingredients give the soap hardness (beeswax), softness (honey) or more foam (cocoa butter) for greater cleansing ability.

Because using soap is such a sensory experience, a comprehensive section covers essential oils that create the air of perpetual breeze of that good soaps possess. With this information, you can create the perfect scent. The recipes feature essential oils of the highest purity that are added to the soap right before it is placed in molds.

Easy step-by-step preparation techniques produce luxurious soaps such as:

  • Sandalwood Soap, Kiwi Soap, Chocolate Soap, Wheat Germ Soap, Green Tea Soap, Cedar Soap, Echinacea Soap, Lavender Soap, Marshmallow Soap, Lemon Soap, Rose Hip Soap, Marigold Soap, Coconut Soap, Vanilla Soap, Seaweed Soap, Oat Soap, Clay Soap, Mung Bean Soap, After Eight Soap, Beach Sand Soap

This fascinating history of soap and its ingredients with therapeutic recommendations is informative and fun to read. The comprehensive recipes with preparation, utensil and ingredient tips guide the reader to create better-than-store-bought quality soaps at home.

Herbalists, naturopaths, plantspeople, witches, and natural healers will love the empowering information, engaging stories, and heartfelt meditations and rituals of natural herbal medicines found in The Gift of Healing Herbs. Written by well-respected urban herbalist Robin Rose Bennett with more than 180 easy-to-follow recipes, this book offers readers who want to take charge of their health an immersion into myriad ways to use plant-based remedies to care for themselves and others on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

Informed by the wisdom that physical and spiritual healing are inextricably intertwined, The Gift of Healing Herbs explores herbology as the “people’s medicine,” freely available to all, and as a powerful yet gentle way to heal body, mind, heart and soul. The book is divided into three parts: the first part examines health and the causes of illness; the second part comprises a reference of all the physical systems of the body and the common and not-so-common herbs for tonifying them; and the third part contains recipes for teas, brews, and instructions for incorporating herbs into our daily lives. The hundreds of recipes for herbal preparations in this book (accompanied by prayers, meditations and rituals) offer spiritual and physical insights into the relationship between our body systems and the elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water, thus helping the reader explore and experience the interconnection of all things in the web of life.

With personal stories, case histories and elements of personal memoir, The Gift of Healing Herbs is equal parts inspiration and instruction, drawn from the author’s life and decades spent teaching and practicing herbal medicine in a spiritual, earth-based, nondogmatic style. It’s a book that’s keenly focused on the spiritual aspects of healing, as revealed through personal story. The author explores how one’s personal story turns into one’s embodied physicality, specific health challenges, and ultimately reveals one’s unique path of healing.
