Central to her work is the double-edged concept of mindfulness/mindlessness. When we are mindless, we are like programmed robots, treating information in a single-minded, rigid way. When we are mindful we are alert to the present moment, sensitive to context, and above all freed from the tyranny of old mind-sets. Using amusing anecdotes and a minimum of jargon, the author shows how to avoid the consequences of mindlessness and to reap the benefits of mindfulness - in health, education, work, creativity, overcoming addictions, avoiding burning out, and increasing our control and potential as we grow older.Hide synopsis
