Discover a new way to face work/life challenges, build resilience and learn how to turn roadblocks into stepping stones with these daily meditations. These 365 meditations are designed to support those of us struggling with work/life balance and work addiction-many of whom have demanding full-time jobs, children, marriages, and household obligations-juggling pressures from careers which expect optimal performance. As we navigate these sometimes tumultuous ups-and-downs, #Chill encourages us to step back, take a breath, and imbibe a tried-and-true message geared to widen our resilient zone and free us from the clutches of work/life woes: an impossible deadline, a hard-boiled boss who has no empathy, self-imposed pressures to hurry or perform, anxiety to get it all done, emotional pressures from family members, and the seismic rumble of our own self-doubt. Dr. Robinson describes himself as having once being a chain-smoking, caffeine-drinking work junkie, dogged by self-doubt with no close friends. His colleagues were breathing down his neck and didn't really appreciate his hard work, at least that's what he told himself. His memory got so bad members of his family wondered if he was developing early onset Alzheimer's. He scoffed at the idea of work/life balance, yet he couldn't stop working. He joined Workaholics Anonymous, entered therapy, and stumbled into yoga and meditation. But what ultimately brought him through the ordeal was the practice of meditation-present-moment attention to his feelings and a compassionate, nonjudgmental connection with himself. The practice enabled him to climb out of the work stupors into a saner life.
A fascinating and practical guide from two New York Times bestselling authors, backed by state-of-the-art scientific research Drawing on cutting-edge research, friends and Harvard collaborators Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson expertly reveal what we can learn from a one-of-a-kind data pool that includes world-class meditators. They share for the first time remarkable findings that show how meditation - without drugs or high expense - can cultivate qualities such as selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, and redesign our neural circuitry. Demonstrating two master thinkers at work, The Science of Meditation explains precisely how mind training benefits us. More than daily doses or sheer hours, we need smart practice, including crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a more spacious worldview. These two bestselling authors sweep away the misconceptions around these practices and show how smart practice can change our personal traits and even our genome for the better. Gripping in its storytelling and based on a lifetime of thought and action, this is one of those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest level. 'This is a book that really can change your life.' - Arianna Huffington, author of the 'New York Times' best seller 'The Sleep Revolution' 'A happy synthesis of the authors' remarkable careers' - Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of 'Full Catastrophe Living' and 'Mindfulness for Beginners' The definitive book on the science of meditation. Rigorously researched and deeply illuminating' - Daniel Gilbert, PhD, author of the New York Times bestseller 'Stumbling on Happiness' 'This exquisite duet between a down-to-earth science writer and path-breaking neuroscientist is a tour-de-force, revealing how training the mind can transform the brain and our sense of self, inspiring us to create a greater sense of well-being, meaning, and connection in our world. Bravo!' - Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of the 'New York Times' best sellers, 'Mind' and 'Brainstorm'
"It's hard to be brave,' said Piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." Rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "It is because you are a very small animal that you will be useful in the adventure before us." Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world's most beloved bear, and Pooh's Way, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient Chinese principles of Taoism. And as for Piglet, he embodies the very important principle of Te, meaning Virtue of the Small. Benjamin Hoff's explanations of Taoism and Te through Pooh and Piglet show that this is not an ancient and remote philosophy but something that you can use, here and now. An utterly unique book which makes complex concepts accessible with a little help from Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood. Pooh may be a Bear of Very Little Brain but there are lessons to be learned from his approach to life. Beautifully illustrated by E H Shepard.
A must-have for anyone who practises yoga or is interested in the teachings of the East. B.K.S. Iyengar, whose teachings on yoga are followed throughout the world, reflects upon his lifetime's experience on the yoga path. The structure of the book follows the different aspects of that path (from Freedom Awaits, through The Physical Body, The Energy Body, The Mental Body, The Intellectual Body, The Divine Body to Living in Freedom) and provides a learning framework for yoga as well as an invaluable discourse on life. 'Iyengar knows what the body needs, and he's introduced to the West the Easterner's best path to health and well-being' - TIME Magazine 'Revelations from a lifetime of studying yoga' - The Washington Post 'Light on Life is rich in yoga philosophy and methodology. But unlike his previous writings, this new book is full of autobiographical anecdotes' - The New York Times 'Mr Iyengar reveals in Light on Life the 'heart of yoga' that he personally discovered through more than 70 years of disciplined, daily practice ... [including] the precise ways that yoga can transform our lives and help us live in harmony with the world around us' - Yoga Journal
'Truly a marvellous collection ... There is balm for the soul, fire for the belly, a cooling compress for the fevered brow, solace for the wounded, an arm around the lonely shoulder - the whole collection is a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss' Stephen Fry Sometimes only a poem will do. These poetic prescriptions and wise words of advice offer comfort, delight and inspiration for all; a space for reflection, and that precious realization - I'm not the only one who feels like this. In the years since he first had the idea of prescribing short, powerful poems for all manner of spiritual ailments, William Sieghart has taken his Poetry Pharmacy around the length and breadth of Britain, into the pages of the Guardian, onto BBC Radio 4 and onto the television, honing his prescriptions all the time. This pocket-sized book presents the most essential poems in his dispensary: those which, again and again, have really shown themselves to work. Whether you are suffering from loneliness, lack of courage, heartbreak, hopelessness, or even from an excess of ego, there is something here to ease your pain. 'The book is delightful; it rightly resituates poetry in relation to its biggest and most serious task: helping us to live and die well' Alain de Botton
"At a time when we so need hope, Neale shows us where to find it."Marianne WilliamsonThis book is the ultimate spiritual guide for any spiritual seeker; Is it possible that there is something we don't fully understand about ourselves, about life, and about God? We think we know what we are doing but do we really? Neale encourages us to challenge our assumptions, most importantly our assumptions on separation. If we believe that everything is separate from everything else then how can we move forward to a place of connection where all parts are united?We cannot continue to see the spiritual as separate from the physical, we are at a crossroads and we need to make a decision, a choice between evolution and devolution.Is our fundamental nature physical or spiritual? Are we separate entities or are we unified entities individually expressing a singular essence?Neale concludes by asserting that our true nature is a combination of the two, physical and spiritual. He explains how this shift in thinking could offer a chance for humanity as a whole to change. The book concludes by offering a list of 16 ways that we can all live by in order that we become an awakened species experiencing our true nature at its highest level.

As our world grows increasingly more complex and stressful,
developing our capacity for dynamic balance in our lives, work, and
relationships becomes more and more vital. Based on the ancient
wisdom traditions, contemporary neuroscience research, and the
insights of indigenous cultures throughout our world, "Living in
Balance" shows that, in each moment, we have the capacity to be
mindful of whether our thoughts and actions are moving toward
harmony and balance or away from it. Through this awareness we can
make a conscious choice to continue on the path we are on or to
change our attitude and direction. With a foreword by H.H. the
Dalai Lama, "Living in Balance" offers a rare synthesis of ancient
wisdom traditions with cutting-edge research on peak human
performance that points toward mindfulness as being truly the key
to living in balance.
