April 21st: Relational Mindfulness: A Handbook for Deepening Our Connections with Ourselves, Each Other, and the Planet, by Deborah Eden Tull. Formal mindfulness practice, sometimes called “meditation,” helps us to connect with our internal experiences and to strengthen our awareness and presence for daily living. Informal practice– bringing awareness to the rest of our lives– is the challenge. While our relationships with family, friends, acquaintances, and colleagues bring many gifts, they also can be the source of suffering. Learn tips on how to bring relational mindfulness to your day.
