Just ask Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps, a nonprofit whose mission is to record, preserve, and share the stories of Americans from all backgrounds and beliefs. More
Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally.” Many credit him with bringing this practice into the mainstream (through his Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program), but the practices have been around in many forms for thousands of years and can be found in various spiritual traditions More
Love of self, love of other: two strands in the love braid. I have braided these strands together in all sorts of relationships, in varying degrees of grace and ineptitude. I’ve messed up in both directions: being self-centered, being a martyr; not knowing my own worth, not valuing the essential worth of the other. To love well is to get the balance right. It’s the work of a lifetime.  More
