A moving account drawing on Christian and Buddhist traditions of how the practice of meditation can allow us to accomplish 'the gentle pilgrimage of recovery' from depression

About the Author

Jim Green has worked for many years in the field of mental health with both local and national organisations, the Open University and the BBC. He describes his decades of meditation practice as 'always learning to be a beginner'.


Jim Green has described a new approach to the corrosive suffering of depression ... His special gift is shown in connecting to the sources of healing found in literature, faith and contemplative practice. Anyone suffering from depression who reads this book will feel both understood and gently guided forward. * Laurence Freeman, Director of the World Community for Christian Meditation *
Might "depression" be, not a cold, deterministic diagnosis, but a call to spiritual awakening, to a graced construction of self? Jim Green says it may, and presents his case persuasively. * Erik Varden, author of The Shattering of Loneliness *
If it is true that all human griefs have their roots in our inability to sit quietly in our own company for five minutes, this spare, candid and calm introduction to meditative practice will be a life-saving gift for many living in or on the edge of the darkness that regularly overtakes us in this uncontrollable world. * Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury *
The beguiling title of Jim Green's book both conceals and reveals its revolutionary nature. In beautifully crafted prose, he challenges his readers to let go of their pre-suppositions, habitual attitudes and conditioned responses to life's existential sufferings. Above all, he offers a path out of the prison of dualistic thinking. Meditation, he suggests, leads into the heart of paradox where nothing gives access to everything. * Professor Brian Thorne, psychotherapist, writer, Lay Canon, Norwich Cathedral *
