Praise

“A work of art in its own right, and a meditative tour de force.”—Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are

“A masterpiece….Christophe André, takes a wholly fresh approach to mindfulness, offering beautiful paintings as the starting points for meditation….Everything about this book is exquisite: its language, its instruction, and its gentle insistence that each of us has to practice cultivating this clarity for ourselves. I whole-heartedly recommend it.”—Mark Williams, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford

“A poetic, compassionate guide to mindfulness, offering a fresh and thoughtful path.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“In this internationally best-selling book, French psychiatrist André guides the reader through the practice of mindfulness to art itself. Using color photographs of classic and modern works, the author shows readers how to quiet the outer world and intensify their presence in the moment, neither trying to escape it or change it. André responds to each art piece in terms of feelings and sensory perceptions, helping readers to visualize themselves inside the canvas, smelling, hearing, and really seeing the scene. A fascinating book, suitable for those who are interested in art or the discipline of mindfulness.”—Library Journal
