Mindful : June 2017
Jonathan Rose is a think- ing person’s developer and a man who knows whereof he speaks. His grandfather and great-uncle founded a real estate company in New York in 1928, and his father and he and other members of his extended family have continued in the family busi- ness. For his part, Jonathan has distinguished himself by merging his develop- ment interests with concerns about the effect of the built environment on the natural world and on well-being. Together with his wife, he founded the Garrison Insti- tute (one of the country’s leading centers for contem- plative practice) and created its innovative Climate, Mind, and Behavior program. In this visionary book, Rose pres- ents an urbanism that’s not merely aesthetic and practi- cal. With concrete examples of both the good and the bad, he offers a plan for city-mak- ing that fosters community, vitality, and well-being in harmony with nature, not at its expense. THE WELL-TEMPERED CITY What Modern Science, Ancient Civilizations, and Human Nature Teach Us about the Future of Urban Life Jonathan F.P. Rose • Harper Wave Estelle Frankel, a practicing psychotherapist and teacher of Jewish mysticism, has written a timely new book about daring to not know. Cer tainty in extreme situa- tions, she says in a passage that resonates today, can lead to bigotry and hatred, which “thrive in environ- ments where people are too certain—when they think they know the truth and con- sider their version of it to be the only valid perspective.” Too often we allow our fears to shape our imagination; this prevents genuine pos- sibility from emerging in our lives, and holds us back from taking risks and venturing into the unknown. Frankel suggests that we should use our imagination to embrace the possibilities that not knowing can offer us, and as a result, “our lives and our consciousness expand.” ● THE WISDOM OF NOT KNOWING Discovering a Life of Wonder by Embracing Uncertainty Estelle Frankel • Shambhala 84 mindful June 2017 reviews
