The Meditatio Centre was host to the launch of a new book by WCCM Oblate Jim Green.
The book, Giving up without Giving Up: Meditation and Depressions looks at the subject of Mental Health and Meditation.
Jim’s personal approach and to writing and his deep experience in this field is evident throughout the pages making this a very readable book.
Giving Up Without Giving Up explores the possibility that we have much to learn from the desert times in our lives, when it feels as though we are losing everything, most of all any sense of who we are. Jim offers us a moving account of just how this wisdom practice can accompany each of us as we make ‘the gentle pilgrimage of recovery’. He offers a thorough and practical approach to our times of personal desolation, centred on the practice of meditation (both Buddhist and Christian) , showing how we can learn to treat ourselves and each other with care and compassion.The book is published by Bloomsbury Continuum and is available from all good bookstores and from MedioMedia publishers RRP £12.99 (you can order online here)
