Mindfulness based life enhancement

£16.99

Product description

Central to this book is Mindfulness Based Life Enhancement (MBLE), an approach to mindfulness which forms the basis for a course that has been taught to over 200 people in the past four years. Unlike some Mindfulness Based Interventions it is nonclinical and open to everyone. The core philosophy is that mindfulness is as much about increasing the positive as it is about reducing the negative; hence the name Life Enhancement. MBLE draws upon Buddhist philosophy and psychology, as well as a variety of other disciplines, including Ancient Greek philosophy, social psychology, positive psychology, and learning theory. The first part of the book explains MBLE, looking at the role of mindfulness, mindful learning, the Four Immeasurables, and Positive Psychology. An important feature here are the comments from MBLE participants which illustrate key themes. The second part evaluates the course, drawing on a variety of methods, and drawing in particular on the firstperson experience of participants. The discussion then extends to reflect on what has been learnt, and gives a specific example by considering the implications for senior citizens. Even if you are not one, this should be of interest to you, because you hopefully will be in due course! The final chapter extends this argument to show what mindfulness based enhanced living involves.
