New World Mindfulness - Donald McCown. Mindfulness is spectacularly unspectacular. It’s a practice of showing up in the nitty-gritty of your life: feeling your body in this chair, your feet on this floor, as your breath moves your belly and sounds arrive at random from the next room.

With Dr. Micozzi's Insiders' Cures, you can expect breakthrough information that is grounded in REAL science. Unlike other medical institutions, you never have.

Techniques to fit mindfulness into the demands and pace of real life • Reveals the medical benefits of mindfulness for stress, anxiety, and depression as well as for coping with serious illness and major life changes • Offers a wide range of techniques, including a “high-speed” form of contemplation, from the authors’ extensive experience working with this practice as a healing modality We are all busy--and we all long for quiet and connection. Yet despite the growing body of evidence supporting the benefits of mindfulness, the hectic pace of modern life leaves little time to devote to meditation, relaxation, and contemplation. In New World Mindfulness, mindfulness teacher and therapist Donald McCown and physician Marc Micozzi provide techniques to successfully integrate mindfulness into real life so we can rise above the stress of work, family, and community that can easily pull us out of the moment and into states of tension, anxiety, or depression. Dispelling the two big myths of mindfulness--that it is an “exotic” activity and that it requires you to “slow down and find more time”--the authors present a history of mindfulness in the West, from the American Founding Fathers, Thoreau, and Emerson up to present-day leaders in the field such as Jon Kabat-Zinn, and reveal a high-speed form of contemplation ideal for even the busiest of lives. Exploring the physiological impact of mindfulness practices for stress, anxiety, depression, and coping with serious illness and major life changes, the authors show that mindfulness is not about being silent and alone--it can even be practiced as a family or community. Not prescribing change but rather working from within, this book connects Western no-nonsense, get-it-done pragmatism with the yearning for beauty and balance that makes a full life truly fulfilled.

I read a lot about mindfulness meditation and try to practice it daily. There are plenty of books out there, some good and some not so much, with the majority being a restating of the basic principles with personal anecdotes to illustrate applications for daily life. Most make the connection between mindfulness and Buddhist practices or cognitive therapy or show us brain scan pictures of how our brains act differently when we meditate. When my meditation practice is rough or stale, these kinds of books are often useful in providing a jump start to my practice that appeals to my left brain/cognitive self. But sometimes I need a jolt to my right brain/poetic self and this book has been helpful in that department.

In college I was always fond of Emerson, Whitman and the other transcendentalists (not so much Thoreau) but never saw much connection between what they had to say and my daily life. I think this book does help me make that connection or at least the link to their thoughts and my mindfulness practice (which I think has real life application). Sometimes, Buddhism and brain science seem a little removed from my life and cognitive therapy seems a little too serious and clinical but linking mindfulness to my American heritage seems a nice thing that makes it somehow more real for me. There is something nice too about seeing that those "impractical" writers from the past were seemingly talking and energized about something a long time ago that sounds a lot like what we call "mindfulness" today. I like that link and the more poetic way of talking about it attracts me. I appreciate that the authors of "New World Mindfulness" pointed that out to me and I like being able remember/re-read those American-based philosophers and to view Mindfulness in new ways. Good stuff.

Even if you never read the rest of the book, you will enjoy seeing all the historical connections laid out in chapter 1.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. It gave some good practical and physiological reasons as to why mindfulness works. It often seems so simple yet there is a deeper more complex side to all of it in the way it intersects with the human body, mind and spirit. Just so warm and wonderful!
