Chronic pain has been described as the silent epidemic, so this book is a welcome voice of hope for all sufferers. Above all it is a practical guide to living with and managing chronic pain through the principle of mindfulness. The pain itself can lessen greatly as you learn to let go of the fear, suffering and frustration associated with it, and above and beyond that release from physical pain is the gift of emotional peace this technique teaches. Vidyamala Burch, who has lived with chronic pain for over 30 years shows how to use simple breathing techniques and powerful mindfulness meditations which teach you how to live in the present moment. This book is a real blessing truthful yet positive, and offering a real source of help!
