Mindful : April 2019
Top of Mind Mindful lawyers and lawmakers A professional association for lawyers in the UK announced in November that it will “offer facilities” for members to practice mindful- ness, following a trend in legal circles throughout the UK and abroad. British Parliament has offered mind- fulness training for members since 2014, as does Swed- ish Parliament. The American Bar Association advocates for the practice, even publishing a book about it in 2016. Sipping on mindfulness What would you doforacupof tea?

Perhaps it’s time we practice letting the rocks be.
