    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,

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.

It was a touc

Polly Young-Eisendrath has a new book out, her fourteenth. This is a book like no other that I've ever read. It is a memoir and it recounts events that I lived through as dharma friends of Polly and the love of her life, Ed Epstein. The Present Heart is a statement on the nature of love. It defin
