Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I returned to America in 1972 as a Buddhist monk. I had been studying in Asia for five years, and when I returned, I wanted to see how it would be to live as a monk in America, even if for only a short while. #2 I grew up in a scientific and intellectual household, but was still unhappy. I turned to the East to find happiness, and I began practice at a Thai forest monastery led by the young but later quite famous master Achaan Chah. #3 I have had many spiritual experiences over the years, but my practice is not about ascending the chakras but descending them. I have found myself working my way down the chakras rather than up them. #4 I had used my mind in meditation to suppress painful feelings, but I had little skills for dealing with my emotions or engaging on an emotional level. I had to shift my practice down the chakras from the mind to the heart. I began a long and difficult process of reclaiming my emotions, bringing awareness and understanding to my patterns of relationship, and learning how to feel my feelings.

Philosophy: A Path with Heart is an autobiographically structured story of the author’s deeply personal, emotional, and engaging encounter with philosophy, psychology, and spiritual concerns of the mind and heart from the age of thirteen. Significantly more attention is paid to philosophy than biography. The reader is asked to consider the philosophical, moral, political, environmental, and spiritual issues on which the author has reflected, and with which he continues to dance. He cites in some detail the writings of Barry, Halifax, Harner, Illich, Jung, Kluckhohn, Marx, Parsons, Safina, Swimme, Shills, Tillich, and Wilber. The book attempts to inspire an appreciation of philosophy as an ongoing dialogue with one’s self and others. This dialogue is how his or her world is created, and directly responsible for forming the physical, social, and personal space in which they live. Philosophy is asking more of oneself than facile play with a Smartphone. Philosophy is creating a home for the soul as a house is constructed as a home for the body. What are you building for yourself and those around you?

The techniques of mindful awareness have helped millions of adults reduce stress in their lives. Now, children—who are under more pressure than ever before—can learn to protect themselves with these well-established methods adapted for their ages. Based on a program affiliated with UCLA, The Mindful Child is a groundbreaking book, the first to show parents how to teach these transformative practices to their children. Mindful awareness works by enabling you to pay closer attention to what is happening within you—your thoughts, feelings, and emotions—so you can better understand what is happening to you. The Mindful Child extends the vast benefits of mindfulness training to children from four to eighteen years old with age-appropriate exercises, songs, games, and fables that Susan Kaiser Greenland has developed over more than a decade of teaching mindful awareness to kids. These fun and friendly techniques build kids’ inner and outer awareness and attention, which positively affects their academic performance as well as their social and emotional skills, such as making friends, being compassionate and kind to others, and playing sports, while also providing tools to manage stress and to overcome specific challenges like insomnia, overeating, ADHD, hyper-perfectionism, anxiety, and chronic pain. When children take a few moments before responding to stressful situations, they allow their own healthy inner compasses to click in and guide them to become more thoughtful, resilient, and empathetic. The step-by-step process of mental training presented in The Mindful Child provides tools from which all children—and all families—will benefit.
