Mindfulness Matters


The Good Thing About Mindfulness is that it’s Always Now!

posted by Dr. Arnie Kozak

Hello Everyone! I’ve missed you and suspect you’ve missed me too. A few things have conspired to keep me from writing Mindfulness Matters, including the migration from Moveable Type to WordPress. Beliefnet is still working out the kinks and everything should be back to the way it was soon. Stay tuned for other reports from the past couple of weeks.

Since it’s always now, I hope you’ve all been enjoying the moments of  your life.

I’m excited to report that Wild Chickens and Petty Tyrants: 108 Metaphors for Mindfulness has been translated into both Spanish and Chinese! The Spanish version has a title change, so instead of Wild Chickens and Petty Tyrants, it’s “Revolting: Give Me Some More.” Taking the title from metaphor 71. This book is published by Alianza Editoral

The Chinese version has retained the title and has been published in a lovely edition by Bright Culture Publisher (currently number three on their bestseller list).
