Real Change: Mindfulness To Heal Ourselves And The World

From one of most prominent figures in the field of meditation comes a guidebook for how to use mindfulness to build our inner strength, find balance, and help create a better world.In today?s fractured world, we?re constantly flooded with breaking news that causes anger, grief, and pain. People are feeling more stressed out than ever, and in the face of this fear and anxiety they can feel so burnt out and overwhelmed that they end up frozen in their tracks and unable to do anything. In Real Change, Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in lovingkindness meditation, shares sage advice and indispensable techniques to help free ourselves from these negative feelings and actions. She teaches us that meditation is not a replacement for action, but rather a way to practice generosity with ourselves and summon the courage to break through boundaries, reconnect to a movement that?s bigger than ourselves, and have the energy to stay active.Consulting with veteran activists and social-change agents in a variety of fields, Salzberg collects and shares their wisdom and offers the best practical advice to foster transformation in both ourselves and in society. To help tame our inner landscape or chaos, Salzberg offers mindfulness practices that will help readers cultivate a sense of agency and stay engaged in the long-term struggle for social change.Whether you?re resolving conflicts with a crotchety neighbor or combating global warming, Real Change will provide the fundamental principles and mindfulness practices to help guide you to the clarity and confidence to lift a foot and take the next step into a better world.Review?Inspiring, loving, and empowering.

This is not the mindfulness of navel-gazing on a mountaintop. Salzberg knows what it?s like to grieve and to heal; to fight and to reconcile; to fear and to find courage. She is the guide we?ve been looking for ? and not a moment too soon." - Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can?t Stop Talking?At a time that many are (rightly) talking about how to heal a wounded world environmentally, politically, and economically, and many are (rightly) talking about how to heal our inner worlds, Sharon Salzberg is wisely reminding us that we live in a deeply and profoundly interconnected world?.Read Real Change, and take its wisdom to heart, and take its message to the world.? - Omid Safi"In this book, Sharon has bridged the worlds of mindfulness and social action. She helps us understand that the work we do on ourselves is a prelude to the work we can then do, with others, to reduce suffering in the wo
