Mindfulness for Marines At Camp Hansen, in Okinawa, the US Marines is trying a more progressive approach for those sent to the brig for infractions such as alcohol abuse. The Marines follow a strict code that can lead to discharge for even relatively minor infractions, but the new program at Hansen, empha- sizing mindful pauses to re-orient oneself and goal- setting, focuses on reintegration. With positive reviews from commanders and participants alike, the program may soon be implemented at stateside bases.

The woman next to me asked if I was ok (I clearly wasn’t) and I wound up spilling my guts. She held my hand the entire flight, then hugged me and kissed my forehead when we landed.”– @ kym _possible23 “I was homeless. It was in a suburb of Chicago in the winter, well below freezing. I’d not eaten or really slept in days. A Pakistani fam- ily who owned a Dunkin’ Donuts invited me in, fed me hot soup and donuts. They very literally saved my life.” – @lynlandon “Once I was feel- ing like I could vanish and it wouldn’t matter and didn’t ride my bus two days in a row and when Igotitthebus driver was just like ‘Glad you’re back. I was worried’ and I bawled.” –@ xandradhartmann In an often bleak and depressing social media world, someone (@bookoisseur) asked people to share their experi- ences of kindness from strangers. The responses were heartwarming: Got two minutes? Go ahead and meditate. You don’t need 15 minutes to con- nect with your- self. All you need is a moment.
