Each chapter includes simple to digest information about pain, very powerful story which touches heart followed by mediation practice that goes along with teachings.
I love Dr. wolf’s simple and profound writing.
A MUST for anyone with pain issues, who is willing to use non-medication self care approach to pain.
I can not wait to share these information with mindfulness groups. Reflections are my personal favorite!
Bonus is mindfulness meditation recordings by author!!! She has soothing voice and genuine interest in helping people with chronic pain.
Pain may not go away, or it may, using mindfulness way, we can certainly change resistance to pain. This is the most amazing way to deal with not just pain , but anything life can bring to us.
Thank you Dr Wolf for this book! I will certainly make good use of it.
I appreciated the author’s explanations of concepts such as compassion versus empathy versus pity or acceptance and surrender versus defeat. I found her suggestions for handling big emotions such as depression, grief, and anger very helpful. She provides wonderful suggestions for avoiding comparing yourself to others, dealing with other people’s ignorance of chronic pain, and learning to accept and be present with your pain without letting it take over your life.
The author provides downloadable MP3s of herself reading the meditations on her website, which is a very helpful resource. Additional resources, such as recommended reading and meditation apps, are listed in a Resources section at the back of the book.
I recommend this for anyone dealing with chronic pain or illness.
Thanks to The Experiment for providing me with an unproofed ARC through NetGalley that I volunteered to review.
