Mindfulness is a state of consciousness that fosters heightened awareness of the self, of the senses, and of the outside world. It is a state of being 'aware.' Reaching and sustaining this state is what makes or breaks successful recovery, according to Dr. Richard Fields. In this highly engaging and highly practical book, Dr. Fields, an accomplished mental health and addictions counselor and speaker, 'awakens' the reader to new, positive, healthy life changes and possibilities. He clearly explains how mindfulness and meditation practices can help us all to a better, more enlightened life, a life of freedom from our addictions and delusions, a life with compassion for self and others.
