You don't "read" Mindfulness A-Z. Rather you go on a series of intimate journeys with author Arnie Kozak, and explore the facets of heart and awareness that can free your spirit. Through personal revelation, Buddhist teachings, western science and his own deep wisdom, Arnie offers us a banquet to savor! --Tara Brach, Ph.D., Author of Radical Acceptance (2003) and True Refuge (2013.)
This is a highly personal book on Mindfulness and therefore quite refreshing and real. The stories and anecdotes told by Kozak give you the feel of sitting down with him in person and being inspired by his narratives. It is to be hoped that among the voluminous literature on mindfulness practice currently available, this book will stand out in expanding the reader's understanding of the practice in more nuanced ways and connect to the classical tradition. -- Mu Soeng, Buddhist scholar and author of The Heart of the Universe: Exploring the Heart Sutra, and other books.
Mindfulness A to Z has it all! And refreshingly for a book designed for the popular audience, it reminds us that mindfulness is NOT just bare attention to the present moment. Kozak emphasizes what the contemporary mindfulness movement often ignores: mindfulness is ethical! Thank you!-- Frank Jude Boccio, author of Mindfulness Yoga
“Mindfulness A to Z is a marvelous book: light in tone but deep in meaning, and thoroughly human yet transcendent. Dr. Kozak gives companionship on the Buddhist path and offers welcome guidance for anyone seeking a saner, healthier and more wholesome life.”—Deborah Panakkal David, M.Ed., author of Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness
I have been keeping this book close to where I sit. It is like a healthy bite-size snack, fun and nourishing.—Rev. Taihaku Priest, Shao Shan Temple
