Toronto Method Mindfulness Handbook
Six Lessons in Embodied and Compassionate Meditation
by Ari Kaplan

Toronto Method Mindfulness Handbook is a thorough guide to the fundamental theory and practice of contemporary mindfulness meditation. It is a stand-alone resource for both beginning and intermediate practitioners. Through six lessons, Ari Kaplan explains the importance of balancing present moment awareness with loving-kindness, curiosity with non-identification, and intentional practice with the spontaneous experience of pure beingness. His teachings are rooted in recognized research methods, such as the Toronto Mindfulness Scale and Emotion-Focused Mindfulness. Reading or listening to this book is a meditative experience in and of itself and offers tools to: - Enhance self-awareness and insight, - Relieve stress, - Notice biases and social conditioning, - Alleviate mental suffering, - Improve relationships, and - Be naturally present, anytime. Kaplan blends science, law and philosophy with personal stories. He illustrates the likelihood of avoidance or spiritual bypassing on the way, and how self-compassion practices can open a doorway to healing deep pain.

Ari Kaplan is a lawyer and dispute mediator, as well as a certified mindfulness meditation instructor. His book Pension Law won the Walter Owen Book Prize for outstanding new contribution to Canadian legal literature, and he is currently pursuing a PhD in Law and Emotion. His six-lesson meditation course that culminated in this book is accredited by the Law Society of Ontario and approved by the Family Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario. He lives in Toronto with his family and their Newfoundland dog Pablo.
