Book Description

Everyone loves a good story. This book tells the stories of a constellation of Mindful Heroes: ordinary people, like you and me, who followed the path of mindfulness and went on an inner journey that would change their world. They engaged with an in depth study and courageous exploration of mindfulness practice. Having experienced for themselves the benefits of mindful awareness, compassion and insight, they then wanted to give others the opportunity to discover their own potential. These 26 Mindful Heroes from 10 countries creatively applied mindfulness to a variety of settings across Education, Health, Business, Sport, Creative Arts and Community work. Now they share the moving stories of their personal and professional journeys of transformation with you.

Detailed Description

"As the old saying goes, "It is not what happens on the cushion, it is what we take out into the world." Mindful Heroes exemplifies this notion, exploring the lives of those who have not only experienced the personal benefits of meditation, but those who have gone on to make it their passion and purpose in life, planting the seeds of awareness and compassion for the benefit of us all."

Andy Puddicombe  author of The Headspace Guide to Mindfulness & Meditation: 10 minutes can make the difference; Co-Founder headspace.com


“This is a wonderful book. It reminds us that we are all heroes, due to the power of our own minds. The living examples presented in these pages help to make the mindful path accessible and relatable. I am so happy that works like this are emerging, bringing mindfulness into the heart of our modern culture.”
