Three Days Left to Listen: A BBC radio 4 program on mindfulness

This arrived in my inbox today and I enjoyed listening to it. It is only available to listen to for three days more so it’s a time limited opportunity. The piece blends music, poetry, and interview including with psychologist, Mark Williams, who teaches at the University of Oxford. He cites inspiring research on the benefits of mindfulness for people who experience recurring times of depression. Finding ways to gently approach our difficulties and pain, as well as self-compassion are ideas also discussed in the program. I found the music in the program to be beautiful and moving.
