    I really enjoyed this book In many ways it felt like it was written for someone like me who can get very overwhelmed with anger or sadness about things that happen in the world or on a smaller personal scale and feel completely helpless despite the deep ache of wanting to fix it all I was able to take in a lot of the methodsexamples that were presented as a guide on how to change your way of lookingreacting to peoplesituations the suggested practices the new perspectives As with all books like this some things were meaningful or powerful to me and hit home but overall I thought it was a great book and very timely for me as I'm working on finding a life long path to be openhearted to keep growing and learning to be compassionate and understanding to be proactive instead of reactive to listen and talk less to practice patience live in the present and be mindful of moments of joy and gratitude I'm looking forward to reading the book of his mentor next ❤

    I received a free review copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review A modern approach to mindfulness from an esteemed Buddhist scholar and Psychology professorEverywhere we go we hear about the benefits of mindfulness—to bring us joy peace and productivity and even to make us look younger and live longer Meanwhile in the real world things aren’t so rosy suicide rates are skyrocketing; prescription drug use is on the rise; exposure to negative news is causing PTSD like symptoms; and we continue to report feeling disconnected distracted and depressed How can we be mindful when the world is this fucked up?I have recently completed a short course on mindfulness so when I saw this book available for review I thought it was just perfect Also our region has a huge issue right now with mental health problems so I thought this may very well be the book to stock to help othersBut from the very beginning of the book I sensed disappointment The author was uite adamant that there was a lot of info out there about mindfulness but this was going to be different deeper But for me it never really got thereAlso disappointing was the need to use the F word I know a lot of authors are using it in their titles now but I don't really think that it worked in this one Felt like it was trying to be edgy and failed with the content Having said that the author can write can put sentences together and have them make sense Has a way of engaging the reader uite well at times But it was all just a little sporadic for my likingWill I buy this for my business? I am not completely sure right now ProbablyPaulARH

    INCREDIBLY INSPIRATIONAL BOOK Probably the BEST book that I have ever read on mindfulness mindful living and growing into a better compassionate person Why? Because this book isn’t 100% on how to sit on your cushion and find peace This book is about finding peace within chaos from a place of incredible suffering andor pain and throughout social advocacy campaigns and democratic debates This book is about becoming someone capable and prepared to help build a better human world This book is about fighting for what you passionately believe in while also holding space for the truths that those on the other side carry and respecting their humanity and stories without loosing confidence or conviction This book is about finding a meditationmindfulnessyogai gong practice that fills you up and makes you the most compassionate and effective warrior you can be Frankly I think that this book should be read by every single social justice advocate feminist yogini and mindfulness practitioner living within the chaos of this modern world Even poignant given the current pandemicThe audiobook is very well read by the author

    I'm going to keep this review short and sweet What a surprisingly awesome read I came across this title at random while perusing the Self Help shelves of Barnes Noble I mean c'mon how can you say no to a title like this? There were so many invaluable nuggets imbedded in this uick read I truly enjoyed it

    This is one of the best self help books I have read I really like his takes on Toxic Righteousness Myths and looking at cognitive dissonance in a microscopic manner

    This book is dedicated to every person who cares so deeply about the world that it's killing them I loved this book It gave me chills several times as Desmond perfectly articulated how I feel as both a civil rights activist who feels so much anger at reading about injustices in the news each day and as a yogi desperate for peace inside and outside of myself Desmond shares his personal experiences with bringing together activists who disagree worst drum circle ever and talks intimately about his experience of staying by his wife's side as she suffered tremendously with terminal cancer The advice he gives for staying human amid all this suffering boils down to meditation he offers lots of specific compassion focused meditations aimed at helping you sit with everything going on around you so you don't burn out and retreat into whatever bubble of privilege you can find I alternated between reading the physical book and listening to the author read audiobook on my walks and both were great
