A book and CD/audio download package offering the perfect introduction to mindfulness meditation for time-pressed women who want an accessible way in to the benefits of mindfulness


No matter who we are, or what stage of life we are at, we all long for similar things; to be happy, connected with others, in touch with a sense of calm and peace, vital, alive and joyful. And we long to be able to ride out the tough patches that hit all of us from time to time with some degree of grace and dignity.

The good news is that we can fulfil these longings at any time, in any place. They are only a moment away, a breath away. We can learn how to be comfortable with our body, know and understand our mind, and love our heart. It isn't difficult, long-winded or time-consuming. In doing so you'll feel happier in your own skin, less stressed, more confident, more capable and more at ease with yourself and life.

Mindfulness for Women is a practical guide to coming home to yourself in each present moment. The benefits include:

  • a potent antidote to anxiety, stress, depression, exhaustion and irritability
  • a greater sense of contentment; mindfulness can also reduce addictive and self-destructive behavioural patterns
  • Fast and solutions-based – evidence shows that a little mindfulness goes a long way
  • Bespoke course – can be dipped into to suit your life and priorities now and well into the future

Vidyamala Burch is founder and co-Director of Breathworks, an organisation offering mindfulness-based and compassion-based approaches to living well with chronic pain, illness and stress. This is based on her own experience of living with severe back pain for most of her adult life, following a spinal injury in her teens that resulted in partial paraplegia. In 1985 she started to meditate and is now an experienced meditation teacher who works internationally. She offers wise and practical guidance in how to bring mindfulness and kindness to experience so one can 'live well' with a free and relaxed mind, whatever the circumstances.

Claire Irvin is a journalist and leading magazine editor. Latterly, she was Editor of SHE magazine, where she was responsible for a critically acclaimed relaunch. Prior to SHE, Irvin was Editor at Large of weekly glossy Grazia. Claire is perfectly positioned to demonstrate how the practice of mindfulness can benefit time-pressed women handling all of the pressures of modern life. Via diary entries throughout the book, you can see how Claire has appropriated mindfulness to work successfully and beneficially within a hectic schedule.
