Cygnus Review Winter 2016, Cygnus Star Titles, Mindfulness, Self-help
by: Caroline Latham
This is a companion title to the other Sheldon book on journaling. Sheldon have a distinguished record in bringing out genuine self-help books: books written by experts, which you can use to make yourself happier and more self-actualised. Compassion is a new developing field in mindfulness therapy, which is more proactive in dealing with issues and painful problems, or blocks you can’t get past. It borrows a lot from Tibetan Buddhism in particular, and this book clearly gains a lot from the author’s absorption into Tibetan philosophy. The actor Brian Blessed says that he “cannot recommend it highly enough”.
