Mindful : August 2014
6 mindful August 2014 Both my grandfathers worked in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, one a molding carpenter working on early high-rises, the other an Irish cop, sadly killed in the line of duty. When I make the pilgrimage home, I stay with my brother at 1st and 1st (the cen- ter of the universe according to a classic Seinfeld episode). I love walking around there and interacting with New Yorkers, who are not unkind, as the stereotype would have you believe. They’re intimate, with attitude. Our work at Mindful often takes us there, since it’s a center of both publishing and mindfulness (and mindlessness too?). The occasion of our latest visit was an event at ABC Car- pets, a home furnishings store that sponsors events show- casing people trying to make the world a better place. Only in New York would bath towels and mindfulness instruction share the same space. Con- gressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation, was there to raise money and awareness for his ongoing campaign to bring mindfulness into schools, hospitals, military bases, police stations, and government. Ryan talked to a packed room about the fact that being aware of where you are is not a right or left thing. It’s non-par tisan. He says he’s met plenty of Tea Party yoga moms. He talked about all the people he’s encountered in the two years since his book launched who have shared with him passionate stories about the difference mindfulness has made in their lives, and how they’re paying that for ward. The evening’s star was Keith Mitchell, who played line- backer for three different NFL teams. Mitchell found mindful- ness in a hospital when he was recovering from a neck injur y that left him unable to move most of his body. He learned mindfulness and yoga at a time of great fear and disconnection from his body. Now he’s committed to helping athletes, veterans, and young people to synchronize their bodies and minds. He’s a moving guy. Check him out at keithmitchell59.com ● New York State of Mind — Barr y Boyce, Editor-in-Chief barr firstname.lastname@example.org our thoughts PHOTOGRAPHBYMARVINMOORE
