Empowering Mindfulness for Women is centered around a a five-day intensive mindfulness course attended by eight women from different backgrounds. The reader is invited to imagine they are actively participating in the teaching and learning moments and turning points encountered in teaching and learning mindfulness around themes such as: making space for mindfulness, safeguarding mindfulness for women, engendering mindfulness, mindfulness dreaming and a mandala of wisdoms. Evocative accounts of experience bring to life the women's growing awareness that mindfulness can be both a separate practice and a natural part of life and that it can help us to nurture what we have neglected in ourselves by not tapping into the full spectrum of our experience. Each chapter provides useful follow up activities and questions for individual or group reflection, journaling, sharing and conversation.
