" I would like to refer people to it [Living in the Moment] as it has great appeal. I think it holds the mindfulness message in a most accessible and understandable way for people struggling with applying the principles. Particularly when diagnosed with a life threatening illness."

Prue Fairlie, Palliative Counsellor and mindfulness teacher.


Living in the Moment was published in 2012 and has sold over 25,000 copies around the world.

"I work as a Nurse Practitioner at a very busy NHS walk in center.  I have signposted so may patients to your books!  I have lent my own copies to student nurses when they have felt anxious and a colleague has a  copy of the smaller book at the moment.  My friend has the other copy - she has just completed an introduction to mindfulness at a local school and says it is the best thing she has done!  Such an amazing book which has helped so many people" Chris L

"I bought your book and I just wanted to say it's fabulous. I love the different range of do-able meditations which are great for me as I have a tendency to sabotage meditation unless I can do a "proper" sitting or lying down one which these days I rarely have time for with the baby. I very much hope to use the different ones on a daily basis and managed a mindful cup of tea today! The illustrations and different fonts make it very readable and fun it's lovely."

Mindfulness on the Go by Anna Black (Cico Books, March 2017)

I'm always looking for ways to help people support their practice therefore I'm delighted with this new book/card product that I've put together with Cico Books.

It is often challenging to weave mindfulness into our day as we get caught up in the busyness of life. It can feel overwhelming sometimes to know what to do and how to start doing something different and having to decide stops us doing anything at all.

Mindfulness on the Go is designed to address this problem. The illustrated book introduces the essential pillars of mindfulness and how to cultivate it and the 52 cards offer a day-by-day invitation to put it into practice. You can find out more here
