John Teasdale’s new book, What Happens in Mindfulness, is now available. It is an essential read for all mindfulness-based programme (MBP) teachers.
The writing brings together John’s life work as a cognitive scientist and co-developer of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), with the importance of his contemplative practice to his life and work. John is uniquely positioned to engage in this integration and depth of analysis. He synthesises these ancient and contemporary ways of understanding the human system and communicates how mindfulness addresses the inherent challenges of being human in a way that is accessible and graspable. There is a sense as one reads of a deepening understanding of the familiar and known process of engaging in mindfulness practice.
This expansion of understanding is highly motivational – recognising that what happens within our system when we practice mindfulness inspires us to keep engaged with the practice. It is also hugely resourcing for our work as MBP teachers – the book helps us to build understanding of the underpinnings of MBP teaching which in turn help us to tune our teaching in ways that support our participants to access freedom from the habit patterns that drive distress.
Come and meet John!
Rebecca Crane and Trish Bartley will be in conversation with John about his new book. There will be an opportunity for participants to pose questions for John through the zoom chat. The workshop will take place online using Zoom from 7 – 8.30pm UK time. Anyone who has an interest in mindfulness practice is welcome. In addition, a 20% discount code for John's book will be available to those registering for the event.
