Mindful : February 2019
“This work requires courage. Not the physical courage required to save someone’s life... but the courage to be real, open, and vulnerable.” THE EZRA KLEIN SHOW Episode: Your attention is being hijacked. Chris Bailey can help. When Google began its Search Inside Yourself pro- gram, it invited Zen teacher Norman Fischer to address its first cadre of teachers. He didn’t actually know he was scheduled to speak (Google can be “spontane- ous”). He quickly jotted down seven principles for teaching mindfulness. Marc Lesser, cofounder of Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, embraced the principles. He’s used them as a guide, he says, for the “culture I wanted to create within the organiza- tion, for how I wanted to teach leadership, for how I wanted to show up as a leader, and for how I wanted to live my life.” Those principles are the back- bone of this clearly articulated, practical, and helpful book. SEVEN PRACTICES OF A MINDFUL LEADER Lessons From Google and a Zen Monastery Kitchen Mark Lesser • New World Library TUNE IN TO Mindful Visit mindful.org for the best in mindfulness—daily practices, guided meditations, interviews, and more PODCAST Reviews Sit and Know You’re Sitting from Susan Kaiser-Greenland Meditation on Your Self-Critical Voice from Diana Winston Opening the Heart from Sharon Salzberg 3 MEDITATIONS FOR A NEW YEAR, NEW YOU 1 2 3 Productivity, for many, means trying to wring every last drop of work out of ourselves, day after day. And this desperate need to “keep busy” can also prevent us from mindfully directing our attention. But that’s precisely Chris Bailey’s mission: The author of Hyperfocus is on a mission to shift productivity culture toward, instead, “doing the right things...deliberately and with intention.” Bailey argues that taking a more mindful approach to work is how we can sustain our focus and creative juice long-term. MODERN LOVE Episode: How to Break Up with a 2-Year-Old Parting ways from a short- lived romance is supposed to be heartbreaking (says every drama, ever). This autobiographical story, however, looks at such a parting from a less glorified angle: having to say goodbye to your ex’s child, after you’ve come to love them so much, they might as well be your own. Writer Laurie Sandell’s deeply touching bond with a girl too young to speak offered revelations about herself—and her life’s trajectory—that she couldn’t have found alone. Mindfulness isn’t compli- cated—its actions are, in fact, quite simple. Training ourselves to do them is the hard par t. To help us in this task, Joseph and Nancy Par- ent have framed mindfulness about as simply as you can, in the language and landscape of everyone’s favorite fictional (and very sage) bear: Winnie the Pooh. As Pooh and Co. go about their day, they bask in the moment, enjoy simple pleasures, feel grateful for their lives, and do other mind- ful activities. Perhaps this one lesson will make it easier for all of us, no matter what season of life we’re in, to make a habit of mindfulness: Just be like Pooh. ● A WALK IN THE WOOD Meditations on Mindfulness with a Bear Named Pooh Dr. Joseph Parent and Nancy Parent • Disney Editions 76 mindful February 2019 reviews
