Mindful Emotion – A Short Course in Kindness is a stimulating guide and training program that uses the analogy of cultivating a garden that results in the finest flowers and fruits to illustrate the process of cultivating kindness toward others. A variety of secular-based mindfulness meditation instructions and thoughtful exercises support this process of creating a garden of kindness, which is what our world so badly needs right now. - Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron, author of Good Karma: How to Create the Causes of Happiness and Avoid the Causes of Suffering

The last 20 years has seen research showing us that what motivates us also patterns our minds and bodies. While modern societies encourage self-focused competitiveness, ancient wisdoms point to the importance of caring, helping, supporting, kindness and compassion for self and others as the true path to happiness and well-being. This deeply informative book brings together secular science, ancient wisdoms and psychotherapeutic insights, in a series of steps and practices to cultivate kindness to self and others and thereby reap its benefits. Accessible and practical, this book will be of great benefit to many. - Professor Paul Gilbert, PhD, FBPsS, OBE, author of The Compassionate Mind

Buy this book, read it, practise with it. It’s a wonderfully welcome addition to the body of work around mindfulness and compassion. It’s engaging; down-to-earth but uplifting; and very much to the point. I’ll certainly be recommending it to all those who have attended my mindfulness classes. - Michael Chaskalson, author of Mindfulness in Eight Weeks

With the problems we face in today's world, kindness is more important than ever. In Mindful Emotion, the authors have produced a thorough and pragmatic guide to bringing mindfulness and kindness into our lives. It is an excellent book that I will be recommending to colleagues, clients, and friends. - Russell Kolts, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Eastern Washington University and author of CFT Made Simple: A Clinician's Guide to Practicing Compassion-Focused Therapy

The benefits of mindfulness are so much greater when they include a focus on kindness and compassion, both for ourselves and others. This book is a wonderful journey through the art and practice of mindful kindness – or as I like to call it, Kindfulness. - Dr Mark Williamson, Director, Action for Happiness
