A companion title tot he bestselling The Essential Guidebook to Mindfulness in Recovery, former Buddhist monk John Bruna and his team outline the seven skills for living mindfully in recovery—values, attention, wisdom, equanimity, compassion, loving-kindness, and action. Each skill has its own chapter with exercises and daily meditation practices.
If you care for someone in addiction recovery, this guidebook builds upon the tools introduced in Bruna's previous workbook to help you strengthen specific knowledge and skills to cultivate mindfulness in your daily life. Whether your loved one is in treatment or not, whether the people in your life are working on themselves or not, you can build awareness for yourself and create a safe place for your own healing and transformation. Using the lessons, meditations, reflections, and other daily practices in this book, you can consciously guide your life forward in the ways you choose based on your values.
