What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a student of mindfulness practice, I've always enjoyed reading and learning about it. However, I came across many books that were heavy in theory or exaggerated promises, and light on actual practical takeaways. I wanted to write a short, concise compilation of practices that readers can actually DO, and put them in a format that is easy to refer back to time and time again.
Use the mental image of tenderly “holding” negative emotions, and “shining a light” of mindfulness on them, rather than perceiving your interaction with them as one of struggle, or resistance, or trying to “conquer” them. Part of the practice of mindfulness is learning to minimize your tendency to attach value judgments to your mind states (“It is bad that I am feeling this way…It is good that I am thinking this thought…”). The actual mental image of simply holding and being aware of what we typically perceive as negative emotions can help to minimize these types of value judgments that are implied when we think in terms of resisting or “fighting off.”
