About this item

Body in Mind is a major new approach to managing stress, anxiety and depression and gaining unprecedented self-awareness through body-centered mindfulness. Drawing on the techniques used in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, the latest research in neuroanatomy and Eastern martial arts traditions, Dr. Tamara Russell has created a unique practice to help you cope more effectively with the most challenging emotions and feelings.Dr. Russell has used these techniques effectively in a clinical setting with sufferers of manic depression, as well as in corporate settings with managers experiencing a high degree of stress and with elite athletes looking to integrate seamlessly body and mind. Because her approach is grounded in the body, Dr. Russell has found it effective for people who find a traditional "sitting still" meditation approach very difficult. Chapter by chapter, the book explores how we can slow down, engage in the present moment, train our attention, understand ourselves and be truly at ease. Each chapter is full of diagrams, thought-provoking and informative illustrations (such as time-lapse photography and brain neuroimaging) and simple exercises and breathing techniques that anyone can perform. Many of the exercises (such as "mindful walking" or the "day of pausing") can be fitted into your daily routine; others, such as "mindful backward swimming," offer a fresh and intriguing approach to the concept of exercise. For the first time, brain neuroimaging is used to prove the beneficial effects of physical and mental exercise. This ground-breaking book makes the healing power of meditative practices that is supported by the latest scientific evidence accessible to everyone.
