Stop doing, stop moving, stop twisting and turning.
These are the first steps toward inner calm and increased mental clarity, says psychiatrist and leading meditation practitioner Christophe André, who in this book guides us through the art of mindfulness, beginning with art itself.
Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. André describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer’s own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, André teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being. Beautifully written, wonderfully accessible for any novice or expert, Looking at Mindfulness is a practical guide for making immediate, meaningful changes in our well-being and the well-being of others.
