Mindfulness for Health is based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her cope with the severe pain of a spinal injury. The Breathworks Centre founded by Vidyamala - and its affiliates around the world - have helped thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Its pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat Zinn, and Professor Lance McCraken of King's College London. The eight week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. You'll be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving behind a deep-seated love of life. This title includes eight guided meditations which appear throughout the audio, as well as being collected at the end.

I have attended mindfulness courses and read and listened to many mindfulness books and this is definitely one of the best. If you are suffering from pain or illness and have never tried mindfulness, this is a perfect place to start. Vidyamala Burch has personal experience of chronic pain and her own use of mindfulness techniques to help with this is extremely inspiring. She narrates this beautifully- her voice is empathetic, soothing and inspiring. This is also a fantastic listen, if like me, you already have some experience of mindfulness meditation. The mindfulness exercises at the end of the book are some of the best I have found on audio.

Would you listen to Mindfulness for Health again? Why?
I'm going to soon, I got so much out of it the first time and am sure the second will reaffirm the inner peace and warmth this book helped me find.
Any additional comments?
An amazing start to a journey into mindfulness for me, and a book that a plan to return to many times whenever in need of a little guidance. I'd recommend this to anyone suffering from pain, mental, physical or both. Well written, in a way other self help books aren't, this one really doesn't make you feel to blame. Gives you knowledge and techniques, and guides you in how to apply them.

I'm so glad they did this
This audiobook has really helped me. It has helped me to learn about mindfulness ( I didn't know anything about it before I began) and to manage my chronic pain. I am very grateful to the authors of this book. I will persist with mindfulness for the rest of my life.
