The Mindful Way Through Depression

The book’s authors, Mark Williams, John Teasdale, Zindel Segal, and Jon Kabat-Zinn, promote mindfulness—awareness of your emotions, thoughts, and feelings in a moment without judging them—as more effective in dealing with depression than thinking your way out of it.

Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness, calls the book, "an invaluable resource not only for those who suffer from depression, but for anyone familiar with the downward spiral of negative thinking and self-doubt."
