Stefan Reynolds is a Benedictine Oblate of the World Community for Christian Meditation, and an Associate of the Irish Cistercians. He has a PhD in Christian Spirituality and gives accomplished retreats at Mount Melleray Abbey on the slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains in County Waterford, Ireland. Here he turns his attention to the current secular preoccupation with mindfulness as a therapeutic tool – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). In a learned, generous and joyful book, Reynolds seeks to place mindfulness in its historical context among the world religions. He never snipes at different viewpoints but seeks to share the rich heritage of the practice to benefit our deeply troubled world.
