Reviews

Library Journal June 2015 According to author Catton (The Mindful Addict), the practice of mindfulness can be summed up in a simple instruction: pay attention. Catton explains how meditation is designed to help people exercise living in the moment, let go of past hurts and future expectations, and offer a sense of serenity. The author guides readers through the most basic meditative ritual, such as focusing on breathing, and presents ideas for mindful walking, eating, and listening. Each of the 67 short chapters can be read sequentially for meditation instruction or at random for inspiration.
Verdict Readers will be encouraged to incorporate these principles into their daily lives. The teachings will resonate with those in 12-step programs, who will find practical ways in which to use them. Among the best titles on this topic.--Deborah Bigelow, director emerita, Leonia P.L., NJ "May I Sit With You? is heart-lifting and mind-opening. This is the sort of book to keep on your bedside table and open anytime you need to remember that mindfulness is possible."--Sharon Salzberg, Cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, Author of Real Happiness "A meditation book that finally incorporates meditation with a design for living. The breath of this book brings every emotion, thought, or belief you have ever had into a meditation practice of healing and hope."--Sherry Gaba, Psychotherapist and Life Coach, Author of The Law of Sobriety
