Publisher Comments:

In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the art and science of mindfulness. Simply put, mindfulness is a means for developing greater awareness of our moment-to-moment experience—for fully experiencing what is happening within us and around us. It has been scientifically shown to reduce stress and improve health. Recent studies also indicate that mindfulness can alleviate depression and anxiety, improve attention and performance, and increase an individual’s overall levels of happiness.

Mindfulness is being applied in a wide variety of fields, including health care, education, leadership development, the law, and the military. The Mindfulness Revolution is a collection of the best writing on mindfulness from leading figures in the field. Selections include:

   • Jon Kabat-Zinn on the essence of mindfulness, stress reduction, and positive change

   • Daniel Siegel, MD, on how mindfulness benefits the brain

   • Thich Nhat Hanh on the power of mindful breathing

   • Michael Carroll on mindfulness in the workplace

   • Pema Chödrön on developing compassion for ourselves and others

   • Daniel Goleman on a mindful approach to shopping and consuming

   • Jan Chozen Bays, MD, on mindful eating

   • Steve Silberman on being mindful online

Review:

"Mindfulness, in both its Buddhist and secular forms, is becoming increasingly familiar to a broad range of Americans. This essay collection describes mindful attention and how it can be applied to such diverse aspects of life as parenting, trauma recovery, money, illness, relationships, and the like. The contributors bring their considerable knowledge and skills to bear on the task of helping others and themselves. The book acknowledges the influence of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction method pioneered at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who has provided two essays; other writers include an unsurprising lineup of notables: Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Pema Chödrön, Matthieu Ricard, Norman Fischer, Dzogchen Ponlop, Thich Nhat Hanh, Daniel Goleman, and the Dalai Lama. Of particular note are Karen Maezen Miller's meditation on housework, Sue Moon's graceful acceptance of senior moments, and Bob Howard's close attention to soil. Simple practices for the reader are included. While the definitions of mindfulness grow repetitive, these clearly written essays taken together form a solid introduction to a now mainstream approach to personal change. (Mar.)"
