A conscious and considered approach to life beckons us to do more than just survive the stresses of daily life. It calls us to thrive, that is, to live happy, full and productive lives. For thousands of years, every culture has had its approaches to living more conscious and fulﬁlled lives. These approaches have not been around for so long because they don’t work. One particularly effective method of experiencing a modem renaissance is called “Mindfulness”. This book incorporates mindfulness in a practical, simple and direct way to enhance mental and physical well-being, relationships and productivity. It is new in the sense that it is situated in a contemporary context and based on current research evidence, but it is also very old in the sense that the principles and practices upon which it is based have been tested over many centuries. The course outlined in these pages has been adapted for health professionals and the general public alike. It has been used in the training of doctors at Monash University and also at the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners since 1991.
