Press Reviews

"'The Buddha was in recovery'". Taking this bold statement as a starting point, this wonderful book shows how we are all addicted to aspects of life and can all benefit from training our minds and hearts to be free of the tyranny of compulsion. The Mindfulness-Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR) programme draws on a wide range of the Buddha's practical, yet deeply profound, teachings. Over the eight steps you are given a priceless gift - the possibility to gain mastery over your mind and heart and find freedom." Vidyamala Burch, founder and co-director of Breathworks, author of Mindfulness for Health "Through Buddhist teachings, personal experiences, and case examples, this book provides a wise illustration of the fundamental processes underlying a broad range of addictive behaviors. Mason-John and Groves offer here a practical and compassionate step-by-step guide to freedom from the deep trappings and suffering of addiction." Sarah Bowen, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, author of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictive Behaviors: A Clinician's Guide "Blending the MBAR program with traditional Buddhist teachings and personal stories, the authors give us a wise and compassionate approach to recovery from the range of addictions. This comprehensive approach will be a valuable tool for addicts and addiction professionals alike." Kevin Griffin, author of One Breath at a Time: Buddhism and the Twelve Steps "The eight steps outlined here provide a simple, wise and practical approach to recovery from a wide range of compulsive patterns of behavior associated with suffering. They provide a spiritual pathway to recovery for people from any faith tradition, as well as for those who are not religious, and for those who suffer from addiction as well as those who are simply aware of the suffering associated with the human condition. This is a book for everyone!" Professor Chris Cook, Director of the Project for Spirituality, Theology & Health, Durham University
