The authors clearly and engagingly explore how we can use mindfulness to:

Increase awareness of our own and others'relational patterns

Calm and soothe our emotions and be there for others

Communicate more effectively

Enhance connection and empathy

Reduce defensive patterns, allowing for more authenticity, and

Work effectively within families and larger systems such as workplaces.

Case studies are included throughout to highlight key principles, as well as practical exercises to enable the reader to develop their mindfulness skills. Mindful Relationships isn't just for the mindfully initiated, it's a practical guide that will enhance the quality of life of all it's readers.
