To whom it may concern:

Christopher Dines has used his own life as a laboratory for learning and teaching. He has demonstrated extraordinary courage in overcoming challenges which he shares with his readers and listeners as a means of joining them in their own.

His kind and soothing voice, combined with excellent examples of ideas to help calm the mind and body and move through obstacles, is inspiring. I recommend both his book, “Mindfulness Meditation: Bringing Mindfulness into Everyday Life” and his tapes/mp3s (Mindfulness Burnout Prevention: An 8-Week Course for Professionals) without reservation.

The Kindness Habit is the fruit of two very kind and courageous people. Reading it is therapeutic; I welcome this book with open arms and gratitude. I have been lecturing on and writing about “addictiveness” as the root of any addiction for many years. Now I have a book to recommend that illuminates the meaning and dynamics of “addictiveness”. Christopher Dines and Dr Barbara Mariposa reframe the whole concept of addictions in a positive way, seeing them as false friends.”

— John Bradshaw, Three times #1 New York Times bestseller and Senior Fellow at The Meadows Treatment Center, USA 


“I have no hesitation in recommending “The Kindness Habit” to anyone seeking greater mental peace, both for themselves and others. In this inspiring book, the authors demonstrate how, through the practise of mindfulness and self-kindness, we can improve our mental and emotional wellbeing, and consequently be of greater service to others.”

— Richard Bacon, MP for South Norfolk, England  


“Christopher Dines is a courageous man. He is diving right into the heart of the silent epidemic of the 21st Century: burnout. He has written a book, Mindfulness Burnout Prevention (MBP) that faces the problem head on, while most people who are being affected by it are trying to ignore it. So, he is both identifying and naming the problem, bringing it out into the open and providing solutions.”

— Dr Barbara Mariposa, author, wellness pioneer and medical doctor, England


Mindfulness Burnout Prevention (MBP) is a well-structured and researched book that leads the reader through a simple, yet deeply important programme of change in a methodical and inspiring way. In particular I liked the references to ancient wisdom to underpin the entire book. For anyone who needs to change the way they engage with their work and life (and the stress it causes them) this is the way to do it – follow the programme in this book!”

— Michael J. McEvoy, Hollywood’s Emmy award-winning screen composer and multi-instrumentalist, England


“Christopher Dines lives, writes, and speaks with a devotion to your very best life. In his prose, you will find the very wells of inspiration – finding your drive to your higher purpose.”

— Michael Cogdill, Emmy award-winning television journalist and author of She Rain, USA


“I found Christopher’s teachings in his book, A Ticket to Prosperity, a most enlightening and interesting experience, for someone who believes very much in the reap what you sow, and the laws of the universe. There are many things in this book that after reading I was prompted to practise with more enthusiasm with the knowledge that my thoughts can become a reality for me.”

— Richard Cole, former tour manager for Led Zeppelin and The Who, England


“Christopher Dines will help you to embark on your boundless journey by empowering you and enriching your well-being.”

— Daniel DiCriscio, Hollywood’s celebrity image consultant, USA


“In Manifest Your Bliss, Christopher sets out a framework of awareness that builds a core foundation from which each of us can create according to our heart’s innermost desires.”

— Harold W. Becker, author and founder of the Love Foundation, USA 


“Coming from a scientific and clinical background, Christopher’s spiritual aspects of mindfulness are both in tune and go beyond the secular application. I highly recommend Christopher’s book, “Mindfulness Meditation: Bringing Mindfulness into Everyday Life”, to anyone wanting to deepen their meditation practise and to develop a more fulfilled life.”

— Mark Hambrook, clinician, teacher of mindfulness based approach & psychotherapist, England 


“There’s nothing crass about Christopher’s invitation to prosperity because, to him, prosperity encompasses far more than achieving financial and material success. For him, to be prosperous is to live generously and therefore to be fulfilled so that one might be generous.”

— Professor Terry Grundy, University of Cincinnati, USA
