If you're like many teachers, your day is busy, demanding, even chaotic. But just because you live in a fast-paced, always-on world, doesn't mean your life has to feel rushed and crazy.

Using principals of Zen, helping us through meditation, mindfulness, and self-care, Tricarico leads us toward a serenity. A peace. A "quiet mind." This is what I've been missing. In the classroom or in a cubicle, the pressure to perform has us so frenzied that we're losing sight of ourselves. In taking care of everyone else, we're neglecting our own needs, and that's not healthy. And it will eventually have consequences for our classroom, our students, and probably our home life.
I loved this book. He builds Zen novices up with baby steps, and helps us focus on what's most important. I don't know what I was expecting, but this just went to the top of my recommendation list for teachers, and for non-teachers at well. If you're in the need for some healing in the middle of the school year, this could be what you're looking for.
