A book to help you achieve mindfulness and practice meditation while looking at the world's greatest works of art. Psychiatrist and leading meditation practitioner Christophe Andr guides you through the art of mindfulness, beginning with art itself. Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. Andr describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer's own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, Andr teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being and mental clarity. The paintings are a visual and tangible first step to understanding mindfulness and the benefits of living in the moment. In practicing mindfulness, within ourselves and out in the world, each of us can make immediate, meaningful, and permanent changes in our well-being and the well-being of others. Beautifully written, wonderfully accessible for any novice or expert, Looking at Mindfulness delivers practical steps and a comprehensive understanding of the practice and meaning of mindfulness and meditation. An authentic and effortless voice, Andr brings clarity to what it means to live mindfully and how we can make a more conscious effort to do so.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Christophe AndrePublisher: Blue Rider PressPublished: 07/05/2016ISBN: 9780399575945Pages: 304Weight: 1.40lbsSize: 8.60h x 6.30w x 0.80d
