Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Mindfulness, in both its Buddhist and secular forms, is becoming increasingly familiar to a broad range of Americans. This essay collection describes mindful attention and how it can be applied to such diverse aspects of life as parenting, trauma recovery, money, illness, relationships, and the like. The contributors bring their considerable knowledge and skills to bear on the task of helping others and themselves. The book acknowledges the influence of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction method pioneered at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center by Jon Kabat-Zinn, who has provided two essays; other writers include an unsurprising lineup of notables: Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Pema Chödrön, Matthieu Ricard, Norman Fischer, Dzogchen Ponlop, Thich Nhat Hanh, Daniel Goleman, and the Dalai Lama. Of particular note are Karen Maezen Miller's meditation on housework, Sue Moon's graceful acceptance of senior moments, and Bob Howard's close attention to soil. Simple practices for the reader are included. While the definitions of mindfulness grow repetitive, these clearly written essays taken together form a solid introduction to a now mainstream approach to personal change. (Mar.)

The Mindulness Revolution presents a wonderful compendium of anecdotes, reflections and practical advice on the practice of meditation and mindfulness. The many contributors represent an interesting and varied cross-section of people who share their insights on the practice of meditation and mindfulness. Some share their journeys to living a more spiritual, mindful life. Far from being a theoretical textbook or manual, The Mindfulness Revolution shows how everyday people can apply mindfulness practices to their daily lives and everyday tasks. This book is a welcome addition to any library or collection of spiritual works!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dave English VINE VOICE on June 13, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a compilation of contemporary essays on mindfulness, each one about six pages long. Mindfulness is a concept that includes expressions of being nonjudgmental, open, accepting and curious. The list of contributors is impressive, and some of the insights they provide are worthwhile the feeling of repetition that starts to make itself known about half way through the book. It's a buffet, great for snacking and trying several different styles, but of course it will not provide the substance of a longer coordinated meal. The magazine article format does provide a good introduction to the subject, and there is a useful list of resources for further exploration provided at the back of the book.

Certainly the essays are not way 'out-there' or esoteric or academic, but rather are readable and relatable.

Has short chapters written by several experts. Tells what mindfulness and meditation is all about, then has chapters telling how to apply it to daily life. Several chapters focus on health and relationships. Especially good for beginners.

Everyone of these short takes on mindfulness is at least 'pretty good.' Most of them are really good. And having such a wide range of experienced perspectives--a smorgasbord of wisdom--is rare.

I often get frustrated and bored when language is laced with shop-talk and dogma. Most Buddhist writers are not dogmatic, yet so many of their terms and quotes and stories are from one official lineage or another--and after awhile some of it sounds as officious as Sunday school. The Mindfulness Revolution is refreshingly free of that.

Of course the crucial thing is that I've read a hundred wise, helpful and fresh bits that will be worth going back to and back to and back to because they will inspire and deepen my appreciation and experience of mindfulness.

Format: Paperback
I have a dear friend who is going through some personal difficulties that I would have found very tough to handle. When I asked how she is able to deal with the situation with such equanimity she credited her mindfulness training which piqued my interest. I decided to look into the topic and chose this book as a starting point. It is great for that since the topic chapters only run a few pages and are varied enough that most will find something of interest as the books reviews mindfulness as it applies to health, money, spirituality, relationships and just about any aspect of life. As a result I picked up "Where Ever You Go, There You Are" which is often credited with dramatically increasing interest in the topic and hope to get into that one soon.

I have been practicing mindfulness meditation for years and found this book featured in the new additions section in my library. It is a collection of essays and can appeal to a secular audience. The book covers a wide array of topics and has a pretty good introduction.
