Bruno and I had been colleagues in 2003 - 2004, and when the administration closed the mindfulness programme that I was implementing in the day programme (whilst I was on holidays), I decided to quit nursing entirely.
Why? Because, for the first time in my professional life I had found a programme that nurtured the inner resources of the clients. There was something that they were able to stir within themselves, when they participated in the training that medication and talking therapy just had not achieved.
The fact that I knew intuitively the path to inner health (not talking about gut health) was through calming oneself, practising meditation at least daily was something that some were able to do easily and others need to be taught to do.
Just being told to go away and practice self-calming and self nurturing things does not help folk. Many of us need a clear, well-defined path to help achieve that.
So, it gave me great pleasure to attend the book launch of this, Bruno's newest book - a self help book. This means that the individual who is seeking to get more control in their life will be able to dive straight into the book.
If you want to get a copy of the book then nip over to the website and pick up a copy. I do believe it is also available as an e-book too.
