Publisher's Summary

When mindfulness meditation was introduced as an aid for patients suffering from chronic pain, physicians were skeptical. Today, mindfulness meditation is used in hundreds of hospitals and clinics across the country. On Break Through Difficult Emotions, meditation mentor Shinzen Young adapts the core principles of mindfulness training to the treatment of emotional suffering. You will learn powerful meditations for overcoming anger, grief, anxiety, shame, and the many other painful emotions we all experience.

Simple, Soulful, Sweet

An outline of the purpose and potentials for the practice, followed by simple, clear, supportive guidance into more involving, but uncomplicated levels of working with mind and body.
