Mindful Living is designed to help you more fully celebrate each moment of your life. Twelve specialists from the Miraval resort—ranging from exercise physiologists to chefs to spiritual healers—bring their expertise to chapters centered on the key tenets of the Miraval philosophy, such as balance, joy, and developing the ability to overcome obstacles. This book brings Miraval to the reader and is designed to be helpful for both those who have never visited and regular guests of the resort. Through recipes, exercises, meditations, and spa treatments, readers are shown a wide variety of practical ways to implement the changes they desire. While the topics addressed in Mindful Living may seem broad, they are held together through the concept of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the ability to live in the present, using simple tools like the breath to help you remain focused, calm, and capable of making the kind of decisions that will lead to a better life. Just as life is a journey, so is Mindful Living, moving through the months of the year and encouraging you to get the most out of each stage of the cycle.

"Miraval has been praised as one of the top spas in the world by many publications for many years. If anyone wonders why, they won’t after reading this book. Mindful Living is brilliant. Mindfulness is not always an easy concept for people to grasp, yet it is one of the most powerful and scientifically proven stress reducers. By using the 12 months of the year as a guide and including exercises, treatments, and recipes, the reader comes away understanding mindfulness and has the tools to incorporate it into daily life. It is a marvelous thing that Miraval is sharing all its secrets in this well-written book. Lucky us."
