A Mindful Society 2020: Day One
Hi there! And welcome to Caversham Booksellers virtual book table for A Mindful Society! Though we can't be there in person, we still wanted to show you some of the rich variety of titles we carry on mindfulness, as well as show off some of the esteemed speakers' books and materials. Please look around and explore resources available on topics you'll be hearing about during the conference.
At Caversham, we carry a wide selection of books on Indigenous values and teachings.
Reconnecting psychology to its ancient roots, Indigenous Healing Psychology by Richard Katz, Ph.D., sensitively shares the healing wisdom of Indigenous peoples he has worked with, including the Ju’hoansi of the Kalahari Desert, Fijians native to the Fiji Islands, Lakota people of the Rosebud Reservation, and Cree and Anishnabe First Nations people from Saskatchewan.
We also have a large Buddhism section, as well as other books on spritual issues. Click below for a list of interesting related titles:

Here's the most recent book by Tamara Russell.

Mark Leonard helps to close out day one by addressing mindfulness and how it applies to social issues. The book acts as a support to Mindfulness-Based Organisational Education (MBOE) as well as explaining the theory that underpins 'social mindfulness'.
