Terry Barrett (Editor), Vin Harris (Editor), Graeme Nixon (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Everyone loves a good story. This book tells the stories of a constellation of Mindful Heroes: ordinary people just like us, who followed the path of mindfulness and went on an inner journey that would change their world. They engaged with an in depth study and courageous exploration of mindfulness practice. Having experienced for themselves the benefits of mindful awareness, compassion and insight, they then wanted to give others the opportunity to discover their own potential. These 26 Mindful Heroes from 10 countries creatively applied mindfulness to a variety of settings across Education, Health, Business, Sport, Creative Arts and Community work. Now they share the moving stories of their personal and professional journeys of transformation with you.
