Mindful : June 2015
CRAZE OR CRAZY Sometimes you just can’t decide if something’s groundbreaking or totally bon- kers. Our jury’s out. What’s your verdict? MEDITATION SELFIES They’ve taken celebrity Insta- grams by storm, and they’re as unusual as they sound. MINDFULNESS OPERA The world’s first “mindfulness opera” kicks off in September in London. Ditch your evening gown for some stretchy pants—there’ll be yoga, meditation, even communal eating at this “opera.” MEDITATION NIGHTCLUB It’s like clubbing, only you meditate as your thoughts appear as light and color. There’s only been one— will it catch on? The Social and Emotional Learning Act It’s time we star t teaching children with their hear ts in mind. Social and emotional learning, or SEL, is an educational approach that fosters empathy, emotional management, and social skills in education, from preschool straight through high school. In Februar y 2015, five members of Con- gress from Ohio, Iowa, Kentucky, California, and Pennsylvania introduced the Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Act, which defines SEL and amends a previous legislation to allow professional develop- ment funding for schools to go toward SEL programs. What if having dementia or Alzheimer’s didn’t signify the end of life, but the star t of a new one? De Hogeweyk, a small gated village in the Netherlands, is revolutionizing memory-loss care. Complete with amenities such as a town square, grocer y store, restaurant, salon, theater, and several parks, de Hogeweyk is home to more than 150 dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. A far cr y from the typical nursing home, resi- dents live in houses with a few peers who share similar values, and they have the freedom to spend their days as they choose, receiving care from doctors and nurses dressed in ever yday clothing. A New (Nursing) Home Things that spark our minds, touch our hearts, make us smile—or roll our eyes. Catch up on the latest in mindfulness. Top of Mind It brings dynamics into your life. If you allow yourself to stop, you also realize how much stimulus is coming from within you.” — a ctor Jeff Bridges on meditation From Photography to Philanthropy For years, photographer and blogger Brandon Stanton has been sweeping social media off its feet with Humans of New York—a blog featuring evocative por traits from the streets of New York City. This year, after taking por traits of a young boy named Vidal from Brownsville, Brooklyn—a neighbor- hood with one of the highest crime rates in the city—Stanton harnessed his popularity to raise money for the boy’s school, so sixth-graders could take a trip to Har vard University and see possibili- ties beyond Brownsville. The star ting goal was $100,000, but the campaign raised more than $1.4 million—enough to establish summer programs and the Vidal Scholarship Fund. 10 mindful June 2015 what’s new PHOTOGRAPHS:COURTESYOFMSAGD.RLP.DE,GAGESKIDMORE,©MARIUSZBLACH/DOLLARPHOTOCLUB,HUMANSOFNEWYORK/BRANDONSTANTON
