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).

Mindfulness with a Capital "M"
A recent Telegraph column asked if mindfulness lives up to its hype. The author, Polly Vernon, predicts that "mindfulness" will be the OED's (Oxford English Dictionary) word of the year. That would not surprise me. She goes on to give a favorable if at first skeptical review of the practice. Having

Time to Wake Up: Reading Your Way to Awakening
We have been asleep, collectively and individually and there is a growing call to wake up. The Buddha was the first to suggest this change in consciousness 2500 years ago (and as you know the term buddha means one who has awakened). And now there are three books that have come to my attention with w

I recently heard Ann Druyan interviewed on Radio Lab.
