I have a lifetime of experi- ence with depression and I disagree with author Sharon Begley when she says, “Piles of research show that a high percentage of depression dissipates on its own.” Begley does her readers a disser vice by saying that with such cer- tainty. Long hours of therapy and deep study in spirituality and mindfulness have given me relief but not a cure. I would be suspicious of any therapist who would try to tell me differently. Ken Bradstock Tobaccoville, North Carolina I’d normally flip past a spor ts stor y, but “The Game Changer” (December 2014) was well wor th the read to learn about NFL coach Pete Carroll’s mindful leadership.

They are two sides of a coin. Malcolm Smith Mindful.org Great suggestions for winding down and getting to sleep. I appreciate these and have found them helpful in my own life (“Winding Down and Falling Asleep,” February 2015). Dan Blase Mindful.org Enjoyed reading “A Deeper Kind of Love” (Februar y 2015). Suppor t for caregivers is essential, but unfortunately, when emotions run high between family members who are exhausted from care or resentful of pressure or guilt from not being able to assist, it can make for a ver y tough time. Charlene Willis Salvaggio Facebook I believe we are using an English word—“mindful- ness”—that doesn’t have the right connotations (“The Many Meanings of Mindfulness,” Februar y 2015). Wish we could find a better one. Jan Ginsberg Facebook As a trained therapist, I agree with the ar ticle (“Flawed Thinking,” Februar y 2015). Therapists seem to view their chosen counseling approach as if it were a religious belief. Perceived “improvements” can so easily be skewed by confir- mation bias. Jodi Owen Facebook
