As a mindful publisher that's active on social media, we're constantly asking this question. http://bit.ly/horse-is-technology
Thich Nhat Hanh says that technology is like a runaway horse: it carries us, but we don't know where it's going. New author Jon Mitchell agrees.

Tune into our first ever live book discussion on 3/31 and read a preview chapter from Sister Dang Nghiem's 2nd book! http://bit.ly/healing-dang-nghiem
A lot has been made of the effects of mindfulness practices on stress, but what about chronic pain and illness? A physician-turned-nun shares her wisdom.

4 schools in San Francisco have incorporated meditation or "Quiet Times" with fantastic results. http://www.nbcnews.com/watch/nightly-news/meditation-curbs-violence-at-san-francisco-schools-378464323951
Students at four schools in a poor San Francisco neighborhood meditate twice a day during "quiet time," and the results have been remarkable.

Here is a classic teaching by Thay on being in the moment. Also, pick up the special "DIY Dharma" issue of the Shambhala Sun, which includes two teachings by Thich Nhat Hanh, "How to Sit," and "5 Practices for Nurturing Happiness." To read the first teaching: http://lionsroar.com/thich-nhat-hanh-sit/ and on nurturing happiness: http://www.lionsroar.com/mindful-living-thich-nhat-hanh-on-the-practice-of-mindfulness-march-2010/
Thich Nhat Hanh shares gentle guidance for beginning your meditation practice.

"We went to a yoga class on our first date. I'd recommend that to everyone, by the way. There's never been a serial killer who enjoyed yoga. I did the research."

Our book club is back from its hiatus and to celebrate we just launched a beautiful interactive guide to Sister Dang Nghiem's touching first book, "Healing: A Woman's Journey from Doctor to Nun" filled with key quotes from the book and various activities and personal reflections. View and download the guide below.
Be touched by the extraordinary story of a doctor turned nun as she confronts trauma, grief, and her own mind. Sister Dang Nghiem's an inspiration to all.
