Mindfulness A to Z - Praise
A sweeping field guide to the practice of mindfulness.
“Mindfulness A to Z has it all! And refreshingly for a book designed for the popular audience, it reminds us that mindfulness is NOT just bare attention to the present moment. Kozak emphasizes what the contemporary mindfulness movement often ignores: mindfulness is ethical!”—Frank Jude Boccio, author of Mindfulness Yoga
“Mindfulness A to Z is a marvelous book: light in tone but deep in meaning, and thoroughly human yet transcendent.”—Deborah Schoeberlein David, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness
“You don't ‘read’ Mindfulness A to Z. Rather you go on a series of intimate journeys with author Arnie Kozak, and explore the facets of heart and awareness that can free your spirit. Through personal revelation, Buddhist teachings, western science and his own deep wisdom, Arnie offers us a banquet to savor!”— Tara Brach, PhD, author of True Refuge
“This ‘field manual’ of mindfulness provides sound, astute guidance for those seeking an entrée to the subject.” —Publishers Weekly
“This is a highly personal book on mindfulness and therefore quite refreshing and real. The stories and anecdotes told by Kozak give you the feel of sitting down with him in person and being inspired by his narratives. It is to be hoped that among the voluminous literature on mindfulness practice currently available, this book will stand out in expanding the reader's understanding of the practice in more nuanced ways and connect to the classical tradition.”— Mu Soeng, author of The Heart of the Universe
“I have been keeping this book close to where I sit. It is like a healthy bite-size snack. The format is fun and the contents, nourishing. May the book be successful and of benefit to many.”—Rev. Taihaku Priest, Shao Shan Temple
