Mindful : June 2014
20 mindful June 2014 THE BOOK OF FORGIVING The Fourfold Path for Healing Ourselves and Our World By Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu • HarperOne There are few people more qualified to write a book on forgiveness than Desmond Tutu. Former chair of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, he helped move his country for ward after apar theid. Here—with daughte Mpho—he offers personal anecdotes, exercises, and medi- tations for letting go of anger. In exploring the process of forgiveness, the Tutus illus- trate how human nature has an endless capacity for healing and compassion. MINDFUL DISCIPLINE A Loving Approach to Setting Limits and Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child By Shauna L. Shapiro and Chris White • New Harbinger Discipline can sound so harsh, implying punishment and recrimination. Shapiro and White are trying to reclaim the word, making it about encouraging our innate ability to pay attention. The goal of parent- ing, in their view, is to enrich the self-disci- pline of children and adolescents, helping them to move beyond acting on impulse, while not suppressing or controlling emo- tions. And parents need to notice when they act impulsively as well. MASTERING THE ART OF QUITTING Why It Matters in Life, Love and Work By Peg Streep and Alan B. Bernstein • Da Capo Lifelong In a culture that equates quitting with losing, Streep and Bernstein argue that giving up is sometimes our best recourse and that being unable to quit explains why some people get stuck in a life rut. They argue that society’s tenacious belief in the value of persistence doesn’t make us stronger; it decreases our emotional and mental flexibility. In showing why some people are unable to quit and restar t their lives, we see instead how they sabotage themselves by holding on to the familiar. ● JUST BABIES The Origins of Good and Evil By Paul Bloom • Crown Publishing Psychologists have long expressed the belief that we are born with moral blank slates, and it’s the job of our parents and society to nur ture us to civilized adulthood. Paul Bloom argues that babies are born with a sense of morality that is detectable as young as three months old. Drawing on groundbreaking research, Bloom demon- strates that even before babies are capable of speaking or walking, they can discern the goodness and badness of others’ actions. He presents a fascinating por trait and a new perspective on human nature.
