In the second story this week on Breathworks, Triratna's Manchester-based Right Livelihood
social enterprise helping people to live well with pain, illness and stress, we're delighted to report that Living Well with Pain and Illness: the mindful way to free yourself from suffering, the book by Vidyamala published in winter 2008, has proved very successful.
The book was well reviewed in the UK pain specialist press, such as Pain News the journal of the British Pain Society (review here, page 18), and has already been reprinted.
Publications are now underway in 9 countries, including UK; India, India; Russia; Sweden; Denmark; Germany; Holland; Brazil and the USA.
You can hear a 56 minute podcast interview between Vidyamala and Tami Simons (the founder of the well-regarded USA publishing house Sounds True) on mindfulness and the Breathworks approach to using mindfulness to manage pain and suffering here.
On 31st August Vidyamala attended a TV studio in Oxfordshire to record an interview and led meditations for conscious.tv
- an internet and satellite TV company.
