The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness

Mark Williams, John Teasdale, Zindel Segal and Jon Kabat-Zinn

The Mindful Way Through Depression

The Mindful Way Through Depression is by Mark Williams, John Teasdale, Zindel Segal and Jon Kabat-Zinn. It has been written for all those who have struggled with depression. Mindfulness can be a simple yet powerful way of paying attention to your most difficult emotions and life experiences without obsessing over them.

It can help you break the cycle of chronic unhappiness once and for all. The authors explain why our usual attempts to “think” our way out of a bad mood or just “snap out of it” lead us deeper into the downward spiral. Through simple lessons drawn from both eastern meditative traditions and cognitive-behavioral therapy, they demonstrate how to sidestep mental habits such as rumination and self-blame that inevitably lead to despair, so you can face life’s challenges with greater resilience. Jon Kabat-Zinn gently and encouragingly narrates the accompanying CD of guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone seeking to regain a sense of hope and well-being.
