A new map to freedom from self-defeating emotional habits
An important book by a leading figure in the worlds of mindfulness, cognitive therapy and research into how our brains work
The aim of Mind Whispering is to transform us into more fully integrated human beings - mentally, emotionally and interpersonally. By using the practical techniques within it, our minds can be more free, our perceptions more true, our responses more artful, our connections more genuine - and our hearts happier.
Tara Bennett-Goleman's first book, Emotional Alchemy, was a New York Times bestseller and translated into 25 languages. It looked at deep patterns that can rule the most troubling times in our lives. In her new work, Mind Whispering, the author ranges more widely, drawing on the very latest ideas in cognitive psychology, neuroscience and Eastern traditions to offer a fresh vision of how we can free ourselves from our most negative frames of mind. Through 'mind whispering' practices, she shows how we can become more positive, and cultivate states of being that are ultimately healing and beneficial.
“A book of exquisite sensitivity and wisdom. It will be read, and used, not only by meditation teachers and clinicians, counsellors and therapists, but also by all who are seeking a new way to find courage and hope in their lives.”
Professor Mark Williams, author of Mindfulness
“[Bennett-Goleman] is truly a pioneer in the integration of Cognitive Therapy and mindfulness.”
