Walk in the desert and you walk with yourself. The backdrop to this everyday companion to mindfulness is the Sahara desert and, as well as an easy to read description of the essentials of mindfulness, the reader will find the author's own photographs of the desert with haiku-style verses. In the desert you come face to face with yourself and in mindfulness you come to see yourself as you are in the moment. The space and the emptiness of the desert complement the stillness and the possibilities of mindfulness. After the instruction you will find four themed meditations with a web link to sound files to use with them if you wish. Here is a good foundation for the development of a regular practice of mindfulness. The author is a psychological therapist of some 30 years standing who uses mindfulness, meditation and creative therapies in his client work, now undertaken at his residential retreat centre in SW France.
