A sweeping field guide to the practice of mindfulness.
From Acceptance to Zafu, Mindfulness A to Z offers a wealth of inspirational advice and practical instruction on how to bring mindfulness fully into your life. In each entry, Dr. Kozak combines his personal insights and expert guidance on all aspects of mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness A to Z presents a multifaceted look at living mindfully in our hectic world, whether dealing with internal conflict, such as fear of missing out, technical problems, such as how to meditate comfortably, or everyday joys such as finding your smile. Whether you devour the whole book in one sitting, or read an entry a day, Mindfulness A to Z will be a great resource for building better practices in your daily life.
“You don't 'read' Mindfulness A to Z. Rather you go on a series of intimate journeys with author Arnie Kozak, and explore the facets of heart and awareness that can free your spirit. Through personal revelation, Buddhist teachings, western science and his own deep wisdom, Arnie offers us a banquet to savor!”
– Tara Brach, PhD, author of True Refuge
“Mindfulness A to Z is a marvelous book: light in tone but deep in meaning, and thoroughly human yet transcendent. Dr. Kozak gives companionship on the Buddhist path and offers welcome guidance for anyone seeking a saner, healthier and more wholesome life.”
– Deborah Schoeberlein David, author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness
“Mindfulness A to Z has it all! It refeshingly reminds us that mindfulness is NOT just bare attention to the present moment. Kozak emphasizes what the contemporary mindfulness movement often ignores: mindfulness is ethical!”
– Frank Jude Boccio, author of Mindfulness Yoga
“I have been keeping this book close to where I sit. It is like a healthy bite-size snack, fun and nourishing
– Rev. Taihaku Priest, Shao Shan Temple
“This is a highly personal book on Mindfulness and therefore quite refreshing and real. The stories and anecdotes told by Kozak give you the feel of sitting down with him in person and being inspired by his narratives. It is to be hoped that among the voluminous literature on mindfulness practice currently available, this book will stand out in expanding the reader's understanding of the practice in more nuanced ways and connect to the classical tradition."
