Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus

“Eminently readable, engaging and wise . . . Rome is just the person you would want as a companion to opening up your inner world.”

Ann Weiser Cornell

“Mindful Focusing comes at a perfect time, resting at the nexus of mindfulness, neuroscience, and social-emotional learning, showing the way for us to bridge meditation and daily life, the brain and the heart, western philosophy and eastern wisdom. This book is a treasure to savor—and use—again and again.”

Judith Simmer-Brown

“I feel happier than I have felt for years and so buoyant.”

Evelyn R.

“Mindful Focusing helps me better handle personal, marital, and parenting challenges.”
