Summary

Summary

Living mindfully, people in recovery can learn skills that allow them to be the people the want to be. Instead of being prisoners of harmful habits, they can consciously create healthy behaviors in support their recovery and live their lives free from active addiction. Former Buddhist monk John Bruna outlines the seven skills of living mindfully in recovery--values, attention, wisdom, equanimity, compassion, loving-kindness, and action--utilizing lessons, meditations, reflections, andother daily practices.
