Using mindfulness in treating addiction-a complete self-help program This unique book offers the practice of mindfulness-or "calm awareness" -as an antidote to the many pitfalls of the addictive path. Drawing on their own research and professional experience as both therapists and meditation teachers, Thomas and Beverly Bien provide readers with ten "doorways" into mindful recovery from addictive behaviors. These doorways focus both on the internal-such as transforming negative emotions-and the external, including the healing properties of nature and learning to appreciate the magic of ordinary living. With personal case histories, hands-on exercises, and instructions for meditation practice, Mindful Recovery unlocks a rich variety of options on the road to recovery. Thomas Bien, PhD (Albuquerque, NM), is a clinical psychologist and public speaker with experience running workshops, lectures, and seminars on addiction-related topics. Beverly Bien (Albuquerque, NM) is the Executive Director of La Vida Felicidad, an agency that provides services to people with disabilities. She holds a master's degree in counseling psychology.
