A Mindful Society 2020: Day Two
Hi again! And welcome back to Caversham Booksellers virtual book table for Day 2 of A Mindful Society!Please have a look around and explore resources available on topics you'll be hearing about during the conference.
We've got lots of activities and movements to get you going! Try Bodyfulness by Christine Caldwell. Each chapter offers insights and practices that help us recover our lost physical wisdom—to integrate our bodies with mindfulness, to deal with emotions, and to develop attuned relationships. Bodyfulness inspires us to reclaim a body-centered contemplative life and challenges us to harness our potential to effect social and personal transformation in this body now. You can also take a look through our Mindful Activities section, or our list of body oriented psychotherapy titles.
While Barry Boyce is giving a talk on the state of the art in secular mindfulness, check out his other titles on the button below!
In the Face of Fear: Buddhist Wisdom for Challenging Times: This anthology features the greatest contemporary Buddhist teachers and writers—people renowned for addressing precisely the problems we’re facing today—including the Dalai Lama, Pema Chödrön, Thich Nhat Hanh, Chögyam Trungpa, Sylvia Boorstein, Jack Kornfield, Norman Fischer, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Salzberg, and many others.
Living mindfully also means living, and working, ethically. Click below for some titles on Mindful Leadership, but in the meantime, here's Thich Nhat Hanh's Mindfulness Survival Kit, a great starting point for mindful ethics.
When it comes to parenting mindfully, Caversham has you covered! The latest book from darling of parenting studies Daniel Siegel, The Power of Showing Up shows that mistakes and missteps are never irreparable and its never too late to repair broken attachment and trust. The key is showing up.
Click below for books on mindful parenting, as well as titles aimed at kids and teens. We've also got great sections for exceptional kids - featuring current titles on learning disabilities, Autism and ADHD.
When times get hard, we have sections for Grief and Trauma. Here you will find staples of the psychotherapy fields in many modalities, and classics such as Grieving Mindfully.
Here's the most recent book by Tamara Russell.

The "Be More..." series has been a runaway hit for us! Full of wisdom but in fun, bite sized packages. Be More Cat or Be More Dog make great gifts for the animal lovers you know. Be More Unicorn and Be More Witch are for people who need a little help with self-acceptance. And these days, Be More Sloth couldn't be more appropriate.
As well, we have tons of great resources for bringing mindfulness to schools, and for practitioners of child and adolescent psychotherapy.
Matthew Brensilver, JoAnna Hardy and Oren Jay Sofer provide a powerful guide with Teaching Mindfulness to Empower Adolescents, helping teachers master the essential competencies needed to successfully share mindfulness practices with teens and adolescents. Incorporating anecdotes from actual teaching, they blend the latest scientific research with innovative, original techniques for making the practices accessible and interesting to this age group. See the lists below:
And we always have to be aware of what being a helper means to our own wellbeing and mental health. Here are some great resources on self-compassion, as well as other books for professionals.
