“A work of art in its own right, and a meditative tour de force” –Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are
“In this internationally best-selling book, French psychiatrist André guides the reader through the practice of mindfulness to art itself. Using color photographs of classic and modern works, the author shows readers how to quiet the outer world and intensify their presence in the moment, neither trying to escape it or change it. André responds to each art piece in terms of feelings and sensory perceptions, helping readers to visualize themselves inside the canvas, smelling, hearing, and really seeing the scene.”-Library Journal
