Product Details


“Mindfulness is the direct path to insight—and no one has ever illuminated that wonderful path more skillfully than Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.”
—Pema Chödrön

“With simplicity and warm-hearted wisdom Chögyam Trungpa invites you to discover your own mindful dignity and presence. These earthy and profound meditation instructions give you courage… encouragement to step beyond your habitual self to discover spacious awareness and embodied compassion.”
—Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart

“From one of the great spiritual teachers of all times, a book on mindfulness that inspires a fresh and open engagement with our inner and outer world.  This guide to meditation has psychological depth, humor and, above all, an illuminating wisdom that dances through every page.”
—Tara Brach, Ph.D., author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

Mindfulness in Action is one of the best introductions to the practice of mindfulness that I have read. It is accessible, fresh and filled with real world advice on how to bring awareness and gentleness into the busyness and pressure of our everyday lives. . . . which will contribute to reducing the anxiety levels of our society as a whole.”
—Congressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation and The Real Food Revolution

“Reading Mindfulness in Action feels like sitting with a good friend. The kind voice, thoughtful words and rich territory of discussion are a lovely gift for newcomers and seasoned meditators from all traditions.”
—Sharon Salzberg, Co-Founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of Real Happiness at Work

“In Mindfulness in Action, a highly trained meditation master shows us—in stunningly simple language and images—how mindfulness is not a single event, but rather an unfolding journey of discovery that will sustain us throughout our entire life. It’s an important contribution to the growing body of mindfulness writing.”
—Barry Boyce, editor-in-chief of Mindful magazine and editor of The Mindfulness Revolution

“Here Chögyam Trungpa shows us how, by simply sitting still, we can reconnect with the profound gentleness and luminous wisdom of being human. Whether you are new to mindfulness or an experienced practitioner, this text is indispensable for learning how to wake up to the vastness and goodness of everyday life.”
—Michael Carroll, author of Awake at Work, The Mindful Leader, and Fearless at Work

“In 1973 in Vermont, Chogyam Trungpa taught me the basics of mindfulness in a startlingly relevant way, leading twenty years later to my addressing what he called America’s “super-sized problems” by teaching mindfulness to leaders in education, business, law, environment, science, and activism.  His powerful presence is alive in this book—including his fierce wisdom, his honest and loving compassion, his fabulous unsparing sense of humor, and his thoughts on the state of America. I can’t imagine a more valuable book at this time.”
—Mirabai Bush, Senior Fellow, Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, and author of Contemplative Practices in Higher Education
