Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators

Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators

The applications and use of mindfulness-based interventions in medicine, mental health care, and education have been expanding as rapidly as the empirical evidence base that is validating and recommending them. This growth has created a powerful demand for professionals who can effectively deliver these interventions, and for the training of new professionals who can enter the fold.

Ironically, while the scientific literature on mindfulness has surged, little attention has been paid to the critical who and how of mindfulness pedagogy. Teaching Mindfulness is the first in-depth treatment of the person and skills of the mindfulness teacher. It is intended as a practical guide to the landscape of teaching, to help those with a new or growing interest in mindfulness-based interventions to develop both the personal authenticity and the practical know-how that can make teaching mindfulness a highly rewarding and effective way of working with others. The detail of theory and praxis it contains can also help seasoned mindfulness practitioners and teachers to articulate and understand more clearly their own pedagogical approaches.

Engagingly written and enriched with vignettes from actual classes and individual sessions, this unique volume:

  • Places the current mindfulness-based interventions in their cultural and historical context to help clarify language use, and the integration of Eastern and Western spiritual and secular traditions
  • Offers a highly relational understanding of mindfulness practice that supports moment-by-moment work with groups and individuals
  • Provides guidance and materials for a highly experiential exploration of the reader’s personal practice, embodiment, and application of mindfulness
  • Describes in detail the four essential skill sets of the mindfulness teacher
  • Proposes a comprehensive, systematic model of the intentions of teaching mindfulness as they are revealed in the mindfulness-based interventions
  • Includes sample scripts for a wide range of mindfulness practices, and an extensive resource section for continued personal and career development
  • Essential for today’s practitioners and teachers of mindfulness-based interventions

Teaching Mindfulness: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Educators brings this increasingly important discipline into clearer focus, opening dialogue for physicians, clinical and health psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, life coaches, organizational development professionals, and teachers and professionals in higher education , in short, everyone with an interest in helping others find their way into the benefits of the present moment.

        Bestselling author and renowned Zen teacher Steve Hagen penetrates the most essential and enduring questions at the heart of the Buddha’s teachings: How can we see the world in each moment, rather than merely as what we think, hope, or fear it is? How can we base our actions on reality, rather than on the longing and loathing of our hearts and minds? How can we live lives that are wise, compassionate, and in tune with reality? And how can we separate the wisdom of Buddhism from the cultural trappings and misconceptions that have come to be associated with it?

        Drawing on down-to-earth examples from everyday life and stories from Buddhist teachers past and present, Hagen tackles these fundamental inquiries with his trademark lucid, straightforward prose. The newcomer to Buddhism will be inspired by this accessible and provocative introduction, and those more familiar with Buddhism will welcome this much needed hands-on guide to understanding what it truly means to be awake. By being challenged to question what we take for granted, we come to see the world as it truly is. Buddhism Is Not What You Think offers a profound and clear path to a life of joy and freedom.

          Muladhara Chakra – Grounding and Inner Peace – Ramakrishnananda Chakra Series Resin Incense

          Jar containg 2.4 ounces net weight of resin incense for burning over charcoal.

          Chakra in Sanskrit means “wheel” or “disc”, implying circular movement. Chakras are transformers of energy that are found in the astral body. They are subtle centers of energy. All of the bodily systems, such as the digestive, neural, circulatory, and respiratory systems are directly influenced by the chakras, which each control specific systems in the entire body. There are seven main chakras along the Susumna nadi, each symbolized by lotus flowers that are open or closed according to the level of personal development. The number of petals on the flower reflects the number of nadis that cross through that chakra. Each resin incense is brought to you in order to awaken the different chakra by its scent, color and intention. Open up Elevate and Enjoy!
