BAKE YOURSELF CALM BY BAKING BREAD…

In an article in Prima Magazine Pauline Beaumont, counsellor and author of Bread Therapy: The Mindful Art of Bread Making she says, ” By mindfully making a loaf of nutritious bread, you will give yourself the satisfaction of creating something lovely, from scratch, with your own hands, something which has huge benefits for your mental wellbeing.

It’s an opportunity to give yourself some time: to slow you down, soothe and ground you, and create a moment of quiet calmness. From kneading dough, to taking a delicious-smelling freshly baked loaf out of a hot oven, bread-making can be a mindful experience and a therapeutic craft that can nurture and nourish us. As yeast transforms flour and water, so making bread can transform us and our lives.

As we seek ‘slow skills’ to free us from the digital world we are inhabiting more and more, and mindful activity to help us manage our mental wellbeing, so bread-making is experiencing a renaissance. This book will guide you through the art of bread making, with insight into the benefits of this ancient craft which will nourish mind and body. It celebrates bread making as a way of understanding ourselves better, learning important life lessons and making positive changes to our mental and physical wellbeing. It features eight simple bread recipes to get you started on your bread-making journey.

Pauline Beaumont is a passionate bread baker, mother of six and counsellor who believes fervently in the power of bread-making to aid our emotional and psychological wellbeing.

Amazon ReviewWe love this book as it sums up exactly how we feel about bread. Bread is like a small animal; it needs feeding, resting and quite a lot of love to get it to feel right. Caring for it gives you a huge buzz. Bread also has the ability to care for you and making bread is such a simple and pure way of boosting mental wellbeing. Pauline’s book captures the magic of this equation beautifully. — Alex and Kitty Tait, founders of The Orange Bakery
