Healthy sleep [CD]
Mind-body experts Weil and Naiman present information on the importance of achieving "optimum sleep." Covers: the roots of insomnia and techniques for overcoming it; the "spiritual component" of sleep and dreaming; eight practices addressing specific sleep problems, including three sessions to help the individual fall asleep; the connection between a healthy sleep cycle and an improved immune system, mood, sense of well-being, and lower body weight.

Heal thy self : lessons on mindfulness in medicine
In this book, Saki Santorelli, director of the Stress Reduction Clinic, explores the ancient roots of medicine, and shows us how to introduce mindfulness into the crucible of the healing relationship. His approach revolutionizes the dynamics between the patient and the practitioner. In describing the classes at the clinic and the transformation that takes place in this alchemical process, he offers insights and effective methods for cultivating mindfulness in our everyday lives. As he reveals the inner landscape of his own life as a health care professional and we join him and those with whom he works on this journey of human suffering and courage, we become aware of and honour what is darkest and brightest within each one of us.

Mindfulness-based Interventions for older adults evidence for practice

Boundaries separate us from others physically and emotionally. In fact, they are essential for our mental and physical health as well as for developing healthy relationships.

Despite the importance of personal boundaries many people are unaware of how or when these very important lines are crossed.
