Last month we announced the publication of The Mindfulness Revolution: Leading Psychologists, Scientists, Artists, and Meditation Teachers on the Power of Mindfulness in Daily Life, a collection — collected by Barry Boyce and the editors of the Shambhala Sun — of the best writing on what mindfulness is, and how and why we should practice it, from leading figures in the field.
The book has caught the attention of Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D., who has blogged about it at the Huffington Post, saying:
Barry Boyce, editor of Shambhala Sun, has finally coined exactly what is happening in our culture today with his newest book, The Mindfulness Revolution. [...] There is absolutely a revolution happening right now, and there likely couldn’t be a more perfect time. [...] Mindfulness is now being talked about as a catalyst for emotional intelligence, which has applications in politics, business, sports, education, health care and so many other places.
