Mandala Book Club March 1st - Falling Awake: How to Practice Mindfulness in Everyday Life by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Let's gather, Yogis and non-yogis alike, for good reads to inspire conscious introspection and thoughtful conversation.
March 1st - FALLING AWAKE - How to Practice Mindfulness in Everyday Life By Jon Kabat-Zinn.
The book focuses on the "how" of mindfulness--explaining how meditation brings us into intimate relationship with all our senses, how to establish a formal meditation practice, and how to overcome some of the common obstacles to incorporating meditation into daily life in an age of perpetual self-distraction. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.
Discussion led by local author and librarian Evan Harris.
