Written by Asian scholars, Mindful Communication for Sustainable Development: Perspectives from Asia analyzes Asian philosophical ideas and communication theories that promote respect for cultural diversity, protection of environment, and ‘sufficiency economic’ models. It discusses how ancient Asian teachings, particularly from the Buddhist, Hindu, and Confucius schools of thought, can enrich modern-day communication needs and help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals espoused by the United Nations. As a mindful communication revolution spreads across the world, especially in the West, this book draws attention to the danger of practicing mindfulness without its spiritual and ethical leanings. The book puts forward innovative ideas on applying traditional practices to modern digital communication. It rethinks development communication methods and how the media reports on economic, environmental, and developmental issues. It promotes a new paradigm of communication, one that is centered on both social harmony and freedom of expression. It is an essential read for development communicators and trainers.

Expanding on the trailblazing ideas of Ellen Langer, this provocative volume explores the implications of critical mindfulness for making psychology more responsive and its practice more meaningful. Powerful critiques take the discipline to task for positioning therapists as experts over their clients and focusing on outcomes to the detriment of therapeutic process. Contributors use the principles of Langerian mindfulness to inform self-understanding and relationships, areas such as athletic performance and consumer decision making, and basic and complex forms of cognitive engagement. The mindfulness demonstrated here is not only critical but also creative, inclusive, and humane, with the potential to transform the consciousness of psychology and other mind-based fields. Included in the coverage: · Critical mindfulness of psychology’s mindlessness. · The construct of mindfulness amidst and along conceptions of rationality. · Understanding confidence: its roots and role in performance. · Mindfulness in action: the emergence of distinctive thought and behavior. · Langerian mindfulness and optimal sport performance. · Health and the psychology of possibility. Critical Mindfulness is bracing and insightful reading for undergraduate and graduate students, psychologists, psychiatrists, physicians, clinicians, neurologists, and educators within and outside positive psychology. These pages challenge the wider community of professionals to rethink their perspectives on practice—as well as their long-held tenets of living.

The Art of Mindful Origami extends the concept of mindful, art-therapy coloring using 15 origami projects, ranging in difficulty from basic to complex, as tools to develop mindfulness. In recent years, interest in mindfulness has exploded and it is now a part of popular culture. Increasingly, creative pursuits such as coloring are being used as a way for people to focus and enter a mindful state. Each project starts with a brief description and background to the model. Subsequent pages give instructions for folding the particular model. For difficult exercises, the book details ways of staying focused and calm and using mindfulness to deal with frustration or distraction. This is an important part of mindfulness and leads to a range of benefits for wellbeing and performance. Once each model is folded, the book then outlines various related exercises that can help to further develop mindfulness. For example, after folding the paper boat, readers are encouraged to lie down and place the boat on their belly and watch it rock up and down on the "waves" as they breathe. This helps them develop mindful breathing, which is a powerful tool for relaxation and focus. High-quality patterned origami paper and coloring sheets, which can easily be torn from the book, are included to make this the ultimate gift for anyone wanting a calmer, more stress-free life.
