Imagine a life without suffering, without stress, anxiety or fear. This may sound impossible, but Mindfulness Plain & Simple will show you how to find this life right here and now. From the first chapter this engaging and revolutionary guide challenges the belief that something needs to change before we can be happy, instead explaining with clarity and humor how this very belief keeps us from ever finding happiness. We journey from humanity's current dysfunctional state to a life of mindful awareness, anchored in the present moment. This simple guide concludes with a set of practical exercises with the power to transform your day to day experience from pain and suffering to peace and happiness. Oli Doyle illuminates, encourages and most of all shows that this peace and joy is not for monks and mystics, but for ordinary people like us.

The mind contains the seeds of its own awakening—seeds that we can cultivate to bring forth the fruits of a life lived consciously. With Mindfulness, Joseph Goldstein shares the wisdom of his four decades of teaching and practice in a book that will serve as a lifelong companion for anyone committed to mindful living and the realization of inner freedom. Goldstein's source teaching is the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's legendary discourse on the four foundations of mindfulness that became the basis for the many types of Vipassana (or insight meditation) found today. Exquisite in detail yet wholly accessible and relevant for the modern student, Mindfulness takes us through a profound study of: Ardency, clear knowing, mindfulness, and concentration—how to develop these four qualities of mind essential for walking the path wisely The Satipatthana refrain—how deeply contemplating the four foundations of mindfulness opens us to bare knowing and continuity of mindfulness Mindfulness of the body, including the breath, postures, activities, and physical characteristics Mindfulness of feelings—how the experience of our sense perceptions influences our inner and outer worlds Mindfulness of mind—learning to recognize skillful and unskillful states of mind and thought Mindfulness of dhammas (or categories of experience), including the Five Hindrances, the Six Sense Spheres, the Seven Factors of Awakening, and much more "There is a wealth of meaning and nuance in the experience of mindfulness that can enrich our lives in unimagined ways," writes Goldstein.
