Ruth Fearnow's first book, Therapeutic Mindfulness, is a synthesis of her decades-long meditation practice and her work as a trauma-focused therapist. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner, she has identified and embedded the factors necessary for healing into therapeutic mindfulness, a skill to facilitate one's healing journey.


Ruth's private journey began as a young woman when she found herself studying kung fu and qi gong in Dengfeng City, China, the home of the famous Shaolin Temple. It was there she began a serious meditation practice. While this skill takes years to develop, this was her first big step to understanding mindfulness practices.


Ruth's evolution into a trauma therapist has enabled her to integrate age-old wisdom with trauma-informed insight. As a result, she has developed healing philosophies and the process of therapeutic mindfulness which she practices personally, and teaches to her clientele, many of whom use it on their own. 

Therapeutic mindfulness has now been adopted for professional use by colleagues in the mental health field.


Dealing with feelings directly is transformational and Therapeutic Mindfulness shows us how to do so. Ruth feels it is time to spread the word.
