This guide to meditation has psychological depth, humor and, above all, an illuminating wisdom that dances through every page."-Tara Brach, Ph.D., author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

"Mindfulness in Action is one of the best introductions to the practice of mindfulness that I have read. It is accessible, fresh and filled with real world advice on how to bring awareness and gentleness into the busyness and pressure of our everyday lives. . . . which will contribute to reducing the anxiety levels of our society as a whole."-Congressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation and The Real Food Revolution

The kind voice, thoughtful words and rich territory of discussion are a lovely gift for newcomers and seasoned meditators from all traditions."-Sharon Salzberg, Co-Founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of Real Happiness at Work

"In Mindfulness in Action, a highly trained meditation master shows us-in stunningly simple language and images-how mindfulness is not a single event, but rather an unfolding journey of discovery that will sustain us throughout our entire life.

"In 1973 in Vermont, Chogyam Trungpa taught me the basics of mindfulness in a startlingly relevant way, leading twenty years later to my addressing what he called America's "super-sized problems" by teaching mindfulness to leaders in education, business, law, environment, science, and activism. His powerful presence is alive in this book-including his fierce wisdom, his honest and loving compassion, his fabulous unsparing sense of humor, and his thoughts on the state of America. I can't imagine a more valuable book at this time."-Mirabai Bush, Senior Fellow, Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, and author of Contemplative Practices in Higher Education
