"This is a beautiful book. Bruno Cayoun has distilled the deepest wisdom of an ancient Buddhist meditation tradition and combined it with the best modern clinical science to offer this program. As he says, with mindfulness training, you can tune your attention so that you can perceive your experiences, understand them and respond to them without needing to react in order to change them. He explains clearly, guides gently, and answers questions skilfully. Using problems as tools through which to learn, he shows you a way to respond wisely to difficulties that can destroy the quality of your personal, family and working life. With this book as a trusted guide, he invites you to discover how you can let go of suffering, restore equilibrium, and rediscover peace. Teachers, students and practitioners everywhere, whether new to or experienced in the practice of mindfulness, will greatly value this book." —Mark Williams, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford, and Co-author of The Mindful Way Workbook
"Bruno Cayoun is a master of mindful living. Here he skillfully blends age-old wisdom, recent research, and practical methods into four essentially helpful steps for all who wish to live a fulfilling life. I have learnt heaps from it - and am sure you will, too." —George W Burns, Adjunct Professor of Psychology, Cairnmillar Institute, Melbourne, Australia, Author of 101 Healing Stories and Happiness, Healing, Enhancement
"This book marries powerful tools from Buddhist meditative practice with contemporary behavioral science for a comprehensive look at transforming suffering. The result is an important contribution to a growing interdisciplinary field." —Sharon Salzberg, Co-Founder of the Insight Meditation Society and author of Real Happiness at Work
"What an amazing book! I could feel the years of wisdom and practice flowing out of each chapter. Mindfulness-integrated Cognitive Behavior Therapy is a jewel that honours both the Buddhist and Western psychological traditions of turning suffering into well-being. You will treasure what Bruno Cayoun offers whether you are looking for a way through personal distress or wish to learn how to bring the elements of Buddhist Psychology into your professional work. Each chapter clearly describes how to cultivate the ancient practice of meditation and supports the practice with solid science. The "question and answer" sections are informative, gentle and direct their guidance making them indispensable to novice and ongoing practitioners alike. You will find this book opens the gate to a sustainable way of living with challenges and a quiet, composed approach to life as it presents itself to you, moment by moment. All you have to do is walk in." —Lynette Monteiro, PhD, Co-Director of Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic, Clinical Professor, University of Ottawa, Co-Author of Mindfulness Starts Here: An eight-week guide to skillful living
At last! A self-help book incorporating mindfulness that does not treat the reader as a simpleton. Dr Cayoun carefully explains the science behind practicing mindfulness combined with right thinking to live a happier and more satisfying life. It is highly practical with easy exercises and lots of guidance from a perspective informed by Buddhist spirituality and Clinical Psychology.—Dr Bruce A Stevens, Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology, University of Canberra, Co-author of Happy Ever After?

Having had this one-on-one teaching I wondered whether a book could adequately convey the principles of the program to someone who was encountering the idea of MiCBT for the first time. So I started reading, intending to be gently critical of how Dr Cayoun conveyed his message of hope and transformation. But his writing is so honest so engaging that soon I forgot criticism and settled in for a good, inspiring read.
Dr Cayoun is a terrific writer. His words and ideas flow smoothly. His tone is conversational and friendly. His warmth and understanding are always evident. Every step is explained fully and simply and he takes great care of his readers, even down to small but important details like telling them how to pronounce MiCBT. Not knowing something like that can be seriously off-putting when it crops up reasonably often. ‘Mickbt’? ‘McBut’?
I like his use of letters, emails and questions from clients and students. They fit in seamlessly to illustrate and expand on some of his points and to give an occasional change of voice throughout the book as he takes us on a long and satisfying journey.
It’s a book to keep always and re-read, or dip into, often. I congratulate Dr Cayoun on an impressive achievement.

Dr Cayoun's insight, compassion, and wise guidance shines through at every point of the book, from beginning to end. The programme is incredibly well designed and thought out, with four stages that build on each other to bring about increasingly profound changes in our lives. Dr Cayoun's description of the mindfulness techniques are, in my opinion, more precise and useful than other mindfulness-based treatments that I have had experience with, and this makes the mindfulness techniques described in this book more powerful. It is encouraging to think that I am learning precisely and therefore not wasting energy due to a lack of precision in the practice technique - that I am getting the maximum benefit for the effort I put in!
The skills MiCBT has given me have allowed me to deal simply effectively with my own emotions and moods, to have more fulfilling friendships and relationships, and to be more useful to the people around me, something I take an increasing amount of joy in. This book has helped me to understand, on an experiential level, what it means to be compassionate and experience compassionate joy. I think that this is something that must be experienced to fully understand how good it is. I just want this book to spread, and for as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits of participating in the programme outlined within its pages. Get this book, and practice what it says, just for a week, and you will start to experience the benefits. The more you practice what Dr Cayoun describes in the book, the more benefits you will feel - he says it in the book, and it is true! I have personal experience of this happening in my own life. I really hope that you are able to feel the benefits too and I can't encourage you enough to buy this book and try it for yourself!
