"Mindfulness seems so simple to do and yet so hard to describe.  Shamash does it brilliantly."

Ruby Wax, comedian, mental health campaigner and bestselling Author.

“I believe this volume will not only remind those experienced in mindfulness of its many benefits, but also will serve as a roadmap to many who may not yet have any experience, or understand the value, of mindfulness.  These techniques have been with us for thousands of years.  The reason?  They work!   I hope you enjoy this volume as much as I have.”

Dr James R. Doty, Stanford University, Founder and Director CCARE, New York Times bestselling Author of Into the Magic Shop.
