Book Review – Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free Your Inner Critic, by Mark Coleman

Another great book on meditation that is especially helpful for those, like me, who struggle with their inner critic. Meditation teacher and author Mark Coleman provides many antidotes for negative thinking and self-talk to help us learn to be more compassionate towards ourselves. Chapters are short with
practical exercises included, mostly meditation based. Mark also describes the scientific foundation, or
neuroplasticity, behind mindfulness along with his personal story.

“Love gives us a quiet strength that enables us to keep the critic at bay, hold our pain tenderly, and
begin the journey of healing.”

Mark Coleman
