This handbook explores mindfulness philosophy and practice as it functions in today’s socioeconomic, cultural, and political landscape. Chapters discuss the many ways in which classic concepts and practices of mindfulness clash, converge, and influence modern theories and methods, and vice versa. Experts across many disciplines address the secularization and commercialization of Buddhist concepts, the medicalizing of mindfulness in therapies, and progressive uses of mindfulness in education. The book addresses the rise of the, “mindfulness movement”, and the core concerns behind the critiques of the growing popularity of mindfulness. It covers a range of dichotomies, such as traditional versus modern, religious versus secular, and commodification versus critical thought and probes beyond the East/West binary to larger questions of economics, philosophy, ethics, and, ultimately, meaning. Featured topics include: A compilation of Buddhist meditative practices. Selling mindfulness and the marketing of mindful products. A meta-critique of mindfulness critiques - from McMindfulness to critical mindfulness Mindfulness-based interventions in clinical psychology and neuroscience. Corporate mindfulness and usage in the workplace. Community-engaged mindfulness and its role in social justice. The Handbook of Mindfulness is a must-have resource for clinical psychologists, complementary and alternative medicine professionals/practitioners, neuroscientists, and educational and business/management leaders and policymakers as well as related mental health, medical, and educational professionals/practitioners.

“If you ever doubted that your feline companion has her own inner life, just watch what happens when she falls asleep, and loses conscious control of her physical being . . . a twitching of limbs, a quivering of the jaw, sometimes perhaps a snuffling noise or a meow. . . . Cats may indeed be capable of great mindfulness. But we are thinking beings, too. In my own case, unfortunately, a being who thinks rather too much.” In the latest installment of the Dalai Lama’s Cat series, His Holiness’s Cat (“HHC”) is on a mission: to think less, to experience more, to live in the moment. She soon learns the proper phrase for this, being mindful, or, a concept better known to her as the power of meow. What ensues is a journey to discover her own true nature, to gain a deeper understanding of her mind, and to experience life’s greatest joy, the here and now. Throughout, she shares encounters with familiar inhabitants of Dharamsala, as well as a whole new cast of characters: a senior exec from one of Silicon Valley’s most famous social media companies (hint: the name rhymes with “litter”), the Pope’s beloved dog (who shares a shockingly similar title: HHD, His Holiness’s Dog), and a public health inspector who threatens to have our poor narrator banned from the Himalaya Book Café. In this follow-up to the Dalai Lama’s Cat and the Art of Purring, readers escape to the enchanting and exotic world of the Dalai Lama’s monastery in the Himalayas, and take a peek inside the mind of a delightfully imperfect creature on the path to enlightenment. By accompanying HHC on her journey, you will learn new ways to relate to your own mind: slowing down, finding peace, and abiding in the boundless radiance and benevolence that is your own true nature.

The author of the international bestseller Happiness makes a passionate case for altruism--and why we need it now more than ever. In Happiness, Matthieu Ricard demonstrated that true happiness is not tied to fleeting moments or sensations, but is an enduring state of soul rooted in mindfulness and compassion for others. Now he turns his lens from the personal to the global, with a rousing argument that altruism--genuine concern for the well-being of others--could be the saving grace of the 21st century. It is, he believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time: the economy in the short term, life satisfaction in the mid-term, and environment in the long term. Ricard's message has been taken up by major economists and thinkers, including Dennis Snower, Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz, and George Soros. Matthieu Ricard makes a robust and passionate case for cultivating altruistic love and compassion as the best means for simultaneously benefitting ourselves and our society. It's a fresh outlook on an ardent struggle--and one that just might make the world a better place.

Der bekannte buddhistische Weisheitslehrer verbindet auf einzigartige Weise neueste wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse mit der spirituellen Praxis des Buddhismus. Glück ist kein Zufall, sondern jeder kann es lernen. Matthieu Ricard gibt revolutionäre neue Einblicke in das, was wir als Glück im Leben bezeichnen, und zeigt, wie wir den Geist so verändern können, dass wir tiefes Glück empfinden. Glück entsteht, wissenschaftlich messbar, aus einem inneren Gleichgewicht von Körper und Geist. Es ist das Resultat einer inneren Reifung, die ganz allein von uns abhängt und die wir Tag für Tag verfolgen können. Konkrete Übungen und Meditationsanleitungen am Ende jedes Kapitels weisen einen klaren Weg zu einem glücklicheren Leben. Das Vorwort schrieb Daniel Goleman, Autor der Bestseller "Emotionale Intelligenz" und "Die heilende Kraft der Gefühle".

Wohnt das Glück im zentralen Himalaya? Titus Arnus aufregender Expeditionsbericht Titus Arnu begibt sich auf die Reise zu einem wahrhaft unbekannten und weltfernen Ziel: Tsum, das Tal des Glücks, versteckt im zentralen Himalaya und ziemlich schwer und mit modernen Transportmitteln überhaupt nicht zu erreichen. Erst seit wenigen Jahren ist die Region für Fremde zugänglich. Die Bewohner des Hochtals, das zwischen Sieben- und Achttausendern liegt, blieben unberührt von jeder modernen Entwicklung, ob aus Nepal, Indien oder dem benachbarten China. Sie leben in kompletter Abgeschiedenheit nach ihren eigenen Traditionen und in vielerlei Weise anders: Sie haben sich verpflichtet, komplett auf Gewalt zu verzichten – und zwar gegen Menschen und Tiere (wer ein Tier tötet, hat ein großes moralisches Problem) –, und leben in Polyandrie, also eine Frau mit mehreren Männern. Der renommierte Reiseautor Arnu will herausfinden, wie es dort tatsächlich aussieht, wie man dort lebt und was das über unsere durchorganisierte Welt im Westen aussagt. «Wie glücklich sind die Menschen wirklich im Tal des Glücks? Und verändert man sich selbst, wenn man eine Weile dort ist? Ist es für verwöhnte Westler eher eine Qual, sich dort aufzuhalten – oder eine Befreiung?» Ein mitreißendes Reiseabenteuer, geleitet von einer der ganz großen Fragen: Was ist Glück?
