Proactive Mindfulness: Resources

Proactive Mindfulness encompasses several projects which explore mindfulness in a down-to-earth, proactive way. Much of the content is collaborative, based on conversations and interviews (blog / podcast). There are books, all available as free downloadable PDFs. There are also online resources, for the general public and for therapists. These projects are edited by Serge Prengel.


There are 2 newsletters, one for the general public and one for therapists.
