"The inspiring life-story of from the bestselling author of Mindfulness in Plain English--updated and expanded in honor of his 90th birthday. Bhante Gunaratana--Bhante G., as he is affectionately called--has long been among the most beloved Buddhist teachers in the West. Ordained at twelve, he would eventually become the first Buddhist chaplain at an American university, the founder of a retreat center and monastery, and a bestselling author. Here, Bhante G. lays bare the often-surprising ups and downs of his more than ninety years, from his boyhood in Sri Lanka to his decades of sharing the insights of the Buddha, telling his story with the "plain-English" good-humored approach for which he is so renowned. This expanded anniversary edition includes four new chapters in which Bhante reflects on the impact of the tsumani that struck his homeland in 2004 and his subsequent appearance on Larry King Live, his brief experiment in ordaining nuns at his monastery, as well intimate reflections on the loss of family members, and his own aging and infirmity--providing a model an inspiring model to us all of gracious equanimity"--

This journal is created and provided as a conscious guidepost to becoming more mindful, present, and aware. I believe anything one can do for 24 hours; one can do it for one week. Furthermore, anything one can do for one week; you can do it for one month. Moreover, that is how a habit forms. The act of mindfulness is the equivalent to being in a constant meditation-like state (for lack of better wording, dah'ling). Here, you need to keep track of your observations daily for 90 days. If a day is missed, merely begin in your current space. There is no catching up, only catching IN-the-now! Enjoy life moment by moment and step by step!When utilizing mindfulness, you train yourself to be attentive, present, and kind. This training entails a focus on self-love and happiness. To become one with the world, you must first become one with yourself and your immediate environment (your world). Understanding the effectiveness of being present helps clear the mind to welcome intuitive guidance, directly or indirectly, via divine assistance. By learning to heal and correct yourself on YOUR life path as an Intuitive, you will become well-suited to assist others more effectively!

Skye, a shy little Goldcrest bird has been abandoned on a tiny Scottish island far from home. Her muddled thoughts are interrupted by the discovery of a mysterious rose quartz crystal. Catapulted on a journey of self-discovery, Skye wonders if this magical little crystal can help her find her way home. Set around the West Coast of Scotland, this charming story introduces young readers to positive mindfulness: becoming aware of our thoughts and feelings. Through the eyes of the lead character 'Skye', the impact of positive or negative mental chatter on our wellbeing is explored. Self-awareness is the first step to dropping unhelpful self-critical thinking, instead, cultivating self-love, self-acceptance and living from our true authentic self. This book is an early reader chapter book, simply laid out with light illustrations. It is suitable for children to read on their own or with an adult. The story gives an opportunity for adults to talk to the young reader about thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Open conversation is an excellent precursor for positive mental health in the future. The Crystal of Creaky Cove is a fictional story, not an activity guidebook. It can be enjoyed as a piece of fiction whether the reader is ready for, or interested in mindfulness or not! Ideal for age 5-9 years old or older if interested in emotional health and mindfulness.

Which life is worth living? In A Philosophy of Mindfulness: A Journey with Deleuze, the writer and philosopher Finn Janning argues that we need a "new" philosophy because we-many of us, at least-are blind. We see rather little of that which surrounds us. For Janning, philosophy is not just an abstract discipline but also a mode of being in this world. By mixing mindfulness with the affirmative philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, he unfolds a philosophy of mindfulness. A philosophy that makes us less blind but also ethically responsible in relation to what we experience. Hereby, Janning moves mindfulness from the sphere of psychology into philosophy, or from being primarily an inward-turned practice to an out-turned one. A Philosophy of Mindfulness is a daring and enriching intervention in contemporary philosophy. It puts emphasis on experience, experiment, and actualization or affirmation. Each experience matters; life is the experience of making contact or being connected with what is in the midst of becoming-that is, life-and then passing it on to the next generations.

At a time when the Humanities are under threat, this book offers a defense of poetry within the context of growing interest in mindfulness in business, health care, and education. The book argues that the benefits and insights mindfulness provides are also cultivated by the study of poetry. These benefits include a focus on the present, the ability to see through scripts and habits, a rethinking of subjectivity, and the development of ecological or systems thinking. Bryan Walpert employs close readings of traditional and experimental poetry and draws on scientific studies of the effects of mindfulness or reading literature on the brain. It argues the skills that poetry, like mindfulness, cultivates are useful beyond the page or classroom and ultimately are necessary to engage with such global issues as the environmental crisis.

Most of us live our lives worn out with stress, anxiety, and emotional chaos. Moreover, the law of adaptations shows us that the more we experience any internal state, the more it becomes the operating system of our life. From Mindfulness to Heartfulness offers another path. It invites you on your own transformative journey to live life at your fullest capacity. It will show you how you have become who you are, and it will offer you a blueprint for change. It will show you how heartfulness, embodied, calms the threat and fear that so often consumes you, and it will offer you a step-by-step approach to one of calm and connection, including a loving connection with yourself. It will show you that love, compassion, and connection are trainable and allow you to tap into your deepest potential. It will show you that healing is possible through heartfulness for yourself, and it will demonstrate the transformative power of every moment. Built on the foundations of mindfulness, you will experience the miracle of heartfulness. This miracle emerges when we seek and actively engage in whatever life-generating opportunity each moment holds. When we fully embody heartfulness, our bodies transform, our lives transform, and the whole of our existence transforms.

A little background and incentive: I do not pretend to be all-knowing in the relatively new arena of mindfulness. Like you, I was looking for a way to enjoy my life. When I say 'enjoy', I do not mean finish school, work like crazy and think retirement is when true enjoyment begins. Like many people, I was running on the hamster wheel when a traumatic event abruptly stopped the spinning. Rather than try and jump back on, I began looking for a better way to get the most from my years, months, days, hours, and even moment-now-instead of thinking all the good stuff was waiting for me in retirement. If this sounds anything like you and what you might be looking for in life, then I invite you to read about my realization. Read about my personal account of the rat race and my journey towards getting as much as humanly possible out of my life with just a few changes, -which begin with your mindset. This quote from Deepak Chopra speaks to me with regard to the thought that I am no expert: "Walk with those seeking truth. Run from those who think they have found it." This is what I have been doing: seeking my truth. The operative word in that sentence is "my." There is no "one size fits all" truth for a collective group: diversity-one of the greatest gifts of life is people growing in different directions and at different rates. Let's walk together.

So...what is MINDFULNESS? It's not just sitting on the floor om-ing. It's getting off the hamster wheel of our ping-ponging thoughts and paying attention to, and appreciating, everyday existence. The payoff can be life-chaging! Mindfulness is a major buzzword these days, but the concept has been around for millennia. Everyone from the Buddha to John the Baptist to Gandhi has embraced its life-changing principles. However, they didn't face the challenges we do, namely 40-plus hour a week jobs (plus the commute), the responsibilities of relationships and parenthood, not to mention the distractions of TV, social media and a nonstop news cycle. This book helps the reader take a step back and look at the many reasons a more mindful life is worth the effort, including physical and mental benefits, greater focus, tolerance, self-control, emotional intelligence and a boost to the immune system. The book helps getting started on the path to being more mindful, starting with things that are derailing someone’s best intentions from a cluttered house to being overwhelmed with negative emotions. While mediation can be a key component of mindfulness, don't think that means you'll be stuck sitting cross-legged for hours on end: This guide offers lots of tips for easing into it. And there are many other forms of mindfulness to explore, from the way we eat and exercise, to establishing a gratitude practice and daily journaling. This book also provides journaling prompts that assist in the journey to self-discovery and mindfulness. Finally, hand’s on craft, activity and drawing exercises will help keep the reader zen by bringing his or her best self to the surface.

Letty wanted to understand, scientifically, why yoga is good for us and how savasana, the relaxation pose of yoga makes us healthier. Thus, Letty weaves together a decade of research, practice and observations of what happens to our anatomy, genetics, and the nervous system while in savasana yoga posture and why it is the gateway to mindfulness.Did you know that the simple act of letting go can improve your health? Our lives often seem like an endless cycle of hustle and bustle. However, Letty's book puts us on the path to let go of stress using savasana, the ancient resting yoga posture.

Cyrino, Letty brings together yoga, culture, art, legend and science to explain the benefits of deep rest in savasana. Join us on this intriguing Journey of Tayná, our morning star avatar.
