Fitzgerald, a former lawyer, professor and peacemaker describes how mindfulness can change your life and leads you step by step through each practice, describing what each one is, how to do it and what to notice afterwards. As Fitzgerald says, “When people pay attention to their body, their thoughts and their emotions, they wake up to a totally new way of interacting with the world and change in amazingly positive ways.”
If you are looking for an introduction to mindfulness or for easy tools to help your daily practice, this book is for you.
