Mindful : August 2013
Rich Fernandez How does Rich Fernandez, senior people- development lead at Google, introduce mindfulness? “I say, ‘Let’s talk about an evidence-based form of mental condition- ing that will have measurable effects on your happiness, productivity, and your overall well-being. Who’s in?’” We’re in. On page 34 Fernandez talks with Irene Au, vice president at Udacity, and Ar turo Bejar, director of engineering at Facebook, about getting the most out of our technology. Michael O’Neal Michael O’Neal, a former creative director at Apple, took the photos for our mindful childbir th stor y (p. 42), including this issue’s cover. “I usually do lifestyle, fashion-y stuff,” he says, “but this was a fun experience. The instructor, Nancy Bardacke, is 70, feisty, and fun. It was really interesting to see her in action, making a difference in these couples’ lives.” Katherine Ellison Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist (and Imelda Marcos biographer) Katherine Ellison star ted paying more attention to the sounds in her life after inter view- ing percussionist Evelyn Glennie (p. 52). “Learning to listen, to slow down enough to really hear what’s being said, to hear all the interesting noises around you is a wonder- ful practice,” says Ellison. Her most recent book is Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention. Susan Freinkel Though her youngest is off to college soon, Susan Freinkel, who wrote our cover story on mindful childbirth (p. 42), loved repor t- ing on couples just star ting families. “I felt very lucky to see these couples star ting something that for me has been a wonder- ful phase of my life. I really feel the mind- fulness training they received is a great foundation for good parenting. I wish I’d had that.” Freinkel is the author of Plastic: A Toxic Love Stor y. Michael Carroll Michael Carroll is the author of several books on mindful leadership, most recently Fearless at Work. He has worked as both a corporate executive and an organizational consultant. “Mindfulness practice helps us connect with other human beings, which is good business,” Carroll says. “It also introduces us to the vastness and presence of what it means to be human.” In this issue he talks about how to be a good mentor in our In Practice: At Work section (p. 67). Mariko Jesse Mariko Jesse’s illustrations accompany our stor y about listening (p. 52). She says people recognize both her Anglo and Japanese heritages in her art, depending on where it’s being seen. “A lot of people in London think it looks ver y Eastern, but when I show my work in Hong Kong they say it’s so English. I think it goes both ways. I get inspiration from ever y where I travel.” 6 mindful August 2013 contributors Illustrations by Jessica McCar thy and Mariko Jesse (self-por trait)
