New Book on Mindfulness

I'm excited to announce that, along with advisory board members Robert Denton and Dennis Tirch, we have signed a book contract with Professional Resource Press. The book will be called "Mindfulness in Clinical Practice," and should be available late 2010. Our intention is to now have an answer when therapists asks us "What book would you recommend to give a good overview of mindfulness?" The book will also include an audio CD containing guided mindfulness practices.

A New Space and a New Face

The Center for Clinical Mindfulness & Meditation has a new space within Union Institute & University. The space will be used to store relevant books, and will serve a place to meet with those interested in working with the CCMM on educational and research projects.

James Jiun Foster has recently joined the CCMM as a graduate research assistant. Mr. Foster is currently a doctoral student in the PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology at Union Institute & University, and has extensive experience with mindfulness and Eastern meditative traditions.
