This book is a treasure-nourishing, sustaining, and skillfully crafted. Calling their approach to the release from anxiety 'the way of awareness, ' the authors have shaped a warm, authentic rendering of mindfulness practice into direct, easily understandable language. Step by step, they lead us into substantive, well-documented methods for becoming intimately familiar with an inner terrain and integrating what is discovered in this interior realm into a way of being that is the key to freeing us from the imprisoning tyranny of anxiety and fear.-Saki F. Santorelli, Ed.D., executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society and associate professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and author of Heal Thyself
