Finding the Center Within: The Healing Way of Mindfulness - Thomas Bien
"Finding the Center Within is a practical manual on the practice of mindfulness, which can help many people to embody their Buddha nature and become radiant and peaceful beings. It provides easy steps for practicing mindfulness in day-to-day living."
–Thich Nhat Hanh, author of Peace Is Every Step, The Miracle of Mindfulness, and Anger: Wisdom for Cooling the Flames
All of us want to live a calmer, more peaceful existence. Thomas and Beverly Bien teach that if we find the center within through ongoing mindfulness, we will have the capacity to live deeply and fully–with boundless peace and happiness–in any external circumstance. We can learn to be calm in the midst of the storm.
Finding the Center Within offers a step-by-step program for breaking down the barriers that prevent us from actualizing our wise inner self. The Biens combine Eastern spiritual wisdom with the pragmatic wisdom of Western psychology, teaching us how to remove the walls that conceal who and what we really are and face our lives with greater honesty. They provide the tools needed to:
- Find a path to the center through mindfulness
- Bring meditation into everyday life
- Work with and transform negative emotions
- Cultivate healthy, healing relationships
- Use dreams to achieve maximum wholeness and self-acceptance
