Shamash Alidina

Shamash Alidina joins us to speak about his new book, The Mindful Way Through Stress.

Ten years ago, there may have been only a handful of books on mindfulness in a secular context. Today, there is an explosion of books, CD’s, blogs, a cornucopia of resources for people to learn more. Each author brings with them their own heartfelt understanding and particular approach to the practice, allowing potential meditators to do some research, and find what might resonate best for them.

Shamash Alidina is the international bestselling author of the Mindfulness For Dummies series, and has now written The Mindful Way through Stress. He frequently pops up in newspapers, magazines and on radio shows. Based in London, he runs workshops and speaks at conferences all over the world and now uses webinars to show others how to teach mindfulness, too. Special thanks to Teresa for her coordination of the interview for this episode.
