Happy fall! As kids, and adults, head back to school, we are pleased to announce our wonderful new books for educators and those who work with children to develop and create learning environments. Everybody Present, is a guidebook that seeks to create a new kind of culture in our schools: one that counters stress and facilitates learning. The book is designed for new and experienced teachers, who want to establish and expand their own mindfulness practice and experience more meaningful educational relationships.
Recently Glen Schneider stopped by to visit the Parallax office in preparation for the release of his soon-to-be book. Naturally, we got on to the subject of the Ten Breaths practice and how with just a few breaths, profound and clear moments can unfold into a whole symphony of experience. By noticing our surroundings and taking a moment to gather our senses to see what follows after our first glance, we can experience life in its fullness.
With renewed intention for deepening our mindfulness practice here is a selection books that we think will be helpful guides throughout the year. The first US book by one of Germany’s most beloved mindfulness teachers reminds us that it just takes a few “small bites” to bring mindfulness practice into our daily lives, while one of America’s most practical and enduring meditation teachers shares ten proven steps to increase joy and enrichment.
