Book Review: A B.R.A.V.E. Year: 52 Weeks Being Mindful (Gabriel Constans)

< Purchase at amazon.co.uk and amazon.com >

I reached out to Gabriel Constans on social media as he struck me as being a really kind and generous guy. Being a mindfulness teacher myself I was intrigued by his book “A B.R.A.V.E. Year: 52 Weeks Being Mindful”. I also noticed that he had masses of mindfulness teaching experience in a wide range of contexts.

I downloaded the Kindle version of the book and I must say – it’s a fantastic resource! It contains a multitude of really useful mindfulness exercises. There is a short introduction and then you’re straight into the good stuff.

This book is extremely practical. I plan to integrate some of Gabriel’s teachings into my own classes and coaching. You can tell from reading this book that Gabriel has a wealth of personal practice and teaching under his belt to draw upon. I read that Gabriel was transformed at the age of sixteen by reading “Be Here Now” by Baba Ram Das, one of my favorite teachers.

“A B.R.A.V.E. Year: 52 Weeks Being Mindful” is great for somebody who is actively practicing mindfulness. Advanced practitioners or beginners. It’s the kind of book that you can open up at a random spot and find something beneficial.

I appreciate the regular linkages to the body and breath. I also appreciate the important inclusions of kindness. For me, these are essential elements of mindfulness practice.

Gabriel cleverly uses catchy names and acronyms for the exercises and techniques, making them easy to remember and use as teaching aids. Very accessible.

Great book – bargain purchase on Kindle and I can imagine the paperback version will be fantastic.

Thank you Gabriel for your wonderful contribution
