We feel deep gratitude for Matthieu Ricard's kind testimonial on the just published French version of our book ‘A Practical Guide to Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living – Living with Heart’:

“LE DÉFI DE LA COMPASSION: VIVRE AVEC COEUR offers an eminently precious tool for anyone not only wishing to learn more about the way their minds work and to find a good emotional balance, but also to put altruistic love and compassion at the heart of their existence. How to live fully without altruism or compassion? Mindfulness-based interventions (MBSR and MBCT in particular) have been proven, among other things, to reduce stress, prevent relapses of depression, and improve the lives of countless people in difficulty. I am convinced that combining compassion with mindfulness gives a whole new dimension to these interventions and helps cultivate a more caring relationship with oneself and others. In essence, compassion, like altruism, is not a luxury, but a necessity.”

MERCI BEAUCOUP to all who contributed, especially co-author Fairouz El Hammar-Vergnes and publisher De Boeck Supérieur for making MBCL available in French language.
