Mindfulness: an eight-week plan for finding peace in a frantic world

I'm reading a Mindfulness book by M. Williams and D Penman and now I will follow a week-by-week summary of their program.

Week One helps you to see the automatic pilot at work and encourages to explore what happens when you "wake up". Central to this week is a Body and Breath meditation that stabilizes the mind and helps you to see what unfolds when you focus your full awareness on just one thing at a time.

My husband and I will be traveling to Europe towards the end of May, but it's difficult to calculate when we will be back home. We are both going for medical reasons, but it all depends on the doctors we will be consulting, as we don't know when their appointments will be. My husband will have another cataract operation done to his second eye, while I will consult a GP to see which doctor I will consult, as I have MS, but also problems with my walking, so it could be my knees or hip. We will see.

I hope things work out and you get some good from the ideas presented in that book. I am familiar with Mindfulness and many are doing this kind of meditation. It is a very good thing to do.

While in Europe I had a hip operation and now I can walk without crutches, walking stick or wheelchair. I also underwent three weeks of a stay in a clinic that specialises in Rehabilitation and I'm a new woman now! My two legs are the same length now and that makes me sleep better at night. They did different types of therapy too.

I must also say that now we have moved from Australia and we are living in Graz, Austria. We sold our flat and car and now we are starting all over again!
