The award-winning New York Times bestseller about the extraordinary things that can happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart. Doty would go on to put Ruth’s practices to work with extraordinary results—power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth’s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results—until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.

Applying somatic principles to the Internal Family Systems model Somatic Internal Family Systems Therapy introduces a new therapeutic modality that blends principles of somatic therapy--like movement, touch, and breathwork--with the traditional tools of the Internal Family Systems framework. Broadening the benefits and applications of the IFS model, author Susan McConnell introduces 5 core practices that mental health professionals can apply to their practice: somatic awareness, conscious breathing, radical resonance, mindful movement, and attuned touch. Clinical applications include the treatment of depression, trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, chronic illness, and attachment disorders. Within the IFS framework, clients will learn to identify their "inner worlds"--the discrete subpersonalities within each of us that hold emotions, perceptions, and belief systems, and that affect our behavior and emotional wellness. Body-based somatic tools are incorporated into therapy as patients learn to recognize different facets of their internal family and reconcile the needs of subpersonalities--like their inner child or internal manager--to bring more harmony to their physical and emotional well-being.

In a world beset by conflicting ideologies, Gee urges us to look to a broader set of ideas from seemingly unrelated disciplines for a viable vision of education. He proposes a framework of principles that can be used to reconceptualize education, specifically literacy, to better prepare students to be collaborators toward peace and sustainability.

The heart is our most important organ and perhaps our most mysterious. Every day it pumps 9000 litres of blood and beats around 100,000 times. But the heart is more than just a pump. In all major human cultures, it is seen as the source of love, sympathy, joy, courage, strength and wisdom. Why is this so? Having witnessed the extraordinary complexity and unpredictability of human hearts in the operating theatre – each one individual in its make-up, like a fingerprint – heart surgeon Reinhard Friedl went on a search for answers. He examined closely the latest findings in neurocardiology and psychocardiology, and in The Beat of Life he shares his discoveries. In the tradition of Giulia Enders’ Gut and Norman Doidge’s The Brain That Changes Itself, he uses riveting personal stories to illustrate the complex relationship between the heart, the brain and the psyche. The Beat of Life ends with a plea: that we recognise the heart’s wisdom and adopt a more heart-centred way of living, which will lead to greater health.

This book is a community project. All the graduates from our Teach Mindfulness training programme were offered a chance to write a chapter for this book. And what you hold in your hands is a collection of stories from the brave and generous souls who stepped up to that challenge.This is actually the second book we've produced together. The first book, Mindfulness for Challenging Times, was born spontaneously in response to the sudden lockdown we faced here in Europe and around the world in the face of a global pandemic.This book is different. We realised stories were most inspiring. Stories that shared how people meet their challenges and overcome them. So, why not have a whole book sharing how mindfulness has transformed our lives? We hope the stories will inspire you to either give mindfulness a go or to encourage you to explore mindfulness more deeply.The book includes access to over 27 guided mindful audio tracks for you to listen to, recorded by 20+ teachers, accessible online via computer or even your phone. They're an important part of the book, helping you to experience the mindful exercises that the authors describe.ContentsPart I: Finding the Courage to Manage Challenging Experiences1: Finding Peace and Mutual Acceptance in the Present Moment2: Transcending Chronic Depression3: Making Friends with Anxiety4: Overcoming Performance Anxiety5: Overcoming Anxiety and Encouraging Creativity6: Finding Understanding and Acceptance7: Using Mindfulness to Cope with Grief8: Slowing Down with Mindfulness: A Route to Whole-body Wellbeing9: Settling into Stillness, Returning to WholenessPart II: Discovering the Transformative Power of Mindfulness, Compassion and Self-compassion10: From Breakdown to Breakthrough11: How Lockdown Helped Me Find Greater Harmony12: Discovering the Power of Self-compassion13: Becoming Inspired to Take a New Path in Life14: Finding My Way Back to Mindfulness, One Deep Breath at a Time15: Learning to Surf: Accepting Life's Events16: Mindfulness as the Foundation for a Happy, Healthy Life17: Letting Go of the Past and Embracing the Present18: Mindfulness Is a Journey, Self-compassion Is Its Outcome19: Mindfulness for a Transformative RecoveryPart III: Connecting to Family, Community and the Wider World through Mindfulness20: The Gentle Power of Mindfulness in Challenging Times21: Widening Your Perspective through Mindfulness22: Mindfulness with Gammy: Sharing Mindfulness with Your Family23: Mindful Parenting: Becoming the Parent I Want to Be24: Transforming Shame into Acceptance through Mindful Community25: Compassion in Action: Understanding Others and Remembering to Be Kind26: Channelling My Creativity into Mindful Sketching27: Connecting with Nature to Find My Inner CompassAppendix: Audio TracksTestimonials"An inspiring and powerful collection of stories documenting the transformative power of mindfulness to change lives."James R.

The day that 12-year-old James Doty walked in to his local magic shop is the day that changed his life. Once the neglected son of an alcoholic father and a mother with chronic depression, he has gone on to become a leading neurosurgeon, based at Stanford University. He credits Ruth for this incredible turnaround: the remarkable woman who devoted the summer to transforming his mind and opening his heart. In this uplifting memoir, Jim explains the visualisation techniques Ruth taught him that gave him the self-esteem to imagine a new future for himself. He examines the science behind mindfulness and why the skills he learned - of focus and attention - now help him to think fast and keep calm in the operating theatre. And he shows us what is possible when you start to change your brain and your heart. Into the Magic Shop imparts some powerful life lessons about how to live better, and inspires us to believe that we all have inside us the capacity to change our own destiny.
