    I wonder if your members would like to know about my new ebook? It is entitled ‘One Hundred Short Escapes.’ In it I describe 100 simple but enjoyable experiences such as flying a kite, picking blackberries, zesting a lemon, changing the bed linen, watching the sea lap the shore, etc. The idea is that readers can download this onto their ipads or Kindles (cost £3.12) and I hope that the reading of any of these prose poetry pieces could transport them from their everyday stresses to a calm and pleasurable experience or memory. I enclose the link for you to see:

    I hope that this might help with mindfulness.
    Thank you,

    Tamar

There are many things we "should" be doing around the holidays. We should be happy, merry, and jolly. We should be with family. We should be the consummate hosts. In the course of the day, we might impose expectations, rules, and agendas on ourselves tirelessly. This is the tyranny of should.

Finding the Fall Line: The Technique of Practice
As I was meditating this morning, I came up with a new practice metaphor. There were times when I was clearly in the flow of my body, very attuned the myriad body sensations and there were other moments where I was somewhere else or trying to manage some aspect of the moment, almost as if I was tryi

Prime Time, All the Time
An add for television streaming service Hulu states, "Every minute of every day should be considered prime time." This clever quip has a double meaning. On the one hand, it reflects the tyrannical notion that every experience that we have should be exciting, entertaining, and novel. On the other han
