Este libro ofrece soluciones efectivas en tres ámbitos fundamentales: bienestar personal (más salud, menos estrés), calidad de las relaciones (más atención, menos errores) y eficacia laboral (más empatía, menos agresividad), por lo cual nos ayudará a vivir de forma más armoniosa para alcanzar el equilibrio vital.
The way we talk to ourselves is often unkind and filled with self-judgments. These overly harsh self-criticisms can make us feel unworthy and incomplete. What if what you really need is not higher standards for yourself, but greater self-compassion?

Based in Western psychotherapy and Buddhist psychological principles, this book guides you past painful and self-limiting beliefs about yourself and toward a new perspective of nonjudgmental awareness and acceptance of who you are, just as you are. You’ll receive gentle guidance in mindfulness and compassion practices that will lead you away from unproductive, self-critical thoughts and help you live more freely and fearlessly, with your heart wide open.

We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work, and play—and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are. Here, the teacher, scientist, and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine offers a book that you can use in three unique ways: as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding “lesson- a-day” primer on mindfulness practice. Beginning and advanced meditators alike will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices that Jon Kabat-Zinn has found most useful with his students, including: Why heartfulness is synonymous with true mindfulness The value of coming back to our bodies and to our senses over and over again How our thoughts “self-liberate” when touched by awareness Moving beyond our “story” into direct experience Stabilizing our attention and presence amidst daily activities The three poisons that cause suffering—and their antidotes How mindfulness heals, even after the fact Reclaiming our wholeness, and more The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. But if you’ve tried it, you know that here is where all the questions and challenges really begin. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights, and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable, and loving connection with ourselves and the world.

Inteligencia emocional plena
Author: Natalia Ramos Díaz, Héctor Enríquez Anchondo, Olivia Recondo Pérez
Publisher: Editorial Kairós
¿Cómo podría integrarse la milenaria práctica de la atención plena (también conocida como mindfulness) con la inteligencia emocional? Este libro analiza, a nivel teórico, y de forma muy didáctica y concisa, la forma de incorporar dicha práctica como herramienta potenciadora de la inteligencia emocional. El eje de esta integración práctica consiste en atender a nuestra experiencia presente con una actitud de apertura, aceptación y ausencia de juicio. Porque cuando focalizamos la atención plena en los contenidos emocionales, se facilita enormemente la comprensión y regulación de las emociones. Este libro te permitirá conocer en profundidad qué es el mindfulness o atención plena, sus efectos terapéuticos, entender cómo ha surgido y se ha ido desarrollando el concepto de inteligencia emocional y saber de qué forma integrar ambos conceptos para desarrollar un tipo de inteligencia que excede lo que hoy entendemos por una inteligencia anlítica o emocional. El resultado es una Inteligencia Emocional Plena (INEP) que nos permite integrar nuestro sistema cognitivo y emocional en el "aquí y ahora".

The long-awaited, complete guide to the popular, vigorous American method of yoga that is deeply rooted in ancient wisdom and scriptures “In this day and age of health and fitness trends, it is assuring to know that Sharon and David encourage their students to draw inspiration from the classical texts of Yoga and timeless scriptural sources. What I appreciate so much about David and Sharon is how they help their Yoga students to understand and appreciate the wisdom of all the great saints and jivamuktas who have contributed to raising consciousness. Ultimately, it is Self-Realization, that is the true goal of Yoga.” –SRI SWAMI SATCHIDANANDA Creators of the extremely popular Jivamukti Yoga method and cofounders of the New York City studios where it is taught, Sharon Gannon and David Life present their unique style of yoga for the first time in book form. As they explain their intensely physical and spiritual system of flowing postures, they provide inspiring expert instruction to guide you in your practice. Unlike many books about yoga, Jivamukti Yoga focuses not only on the physical postures but also on how they evolved–the origins of the practices in yoga’s ancient sacred texts and five-thousand-year-old traditions–the psychotherapeutic benefits that accrue with a steady practice, and the spiritual power that is set free when energy flows throughout the mind and body. Jivamukti Yoga, which means “soul liberation,” guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health, and Self-realization–the ultimate goal of any practice. Gannon and Life help you understand each of the practices that comprise the yoga path to enlightenment: AHIMSA–The Way of Compassion: choosing nonviolence, respecting all life, practicing vegetarianism, living free of prejudice ASANA–The Way of Connection to the Earth: postures and sequences, breathing, transforming energy, understanding the bandhas KARMA–The Way of Action: creating good karma, giving thanks NADAM–The Way of Sacred Music: appreciating the sacred sounds of yoga MEDITATION–The Way of the Witness: how to sit still and move inward BHAKTI–The Way of Devotion to God: living with love, grace, and peace Whatever yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen that practice and lead you onto a path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. “If there is only one book you read about the practice of Yoga, this should be the one. Sharon and David are deeply dedicated students and teachers of Yoga who have the rare capacity to translate their profound understanding to the reader. This book is for anyone who wishes to find transformation through Yoga. I’m grateful for their work and teaching.” –STEPHAN RECHTSCHAFFEN, MD Co-founder & CEO, Omega Institute From the Trade Paperback edition.

Herman De Vries
Author: Herman De Vries
Herman De Vries was trained as a horticulturist and worked as a natural scientist. He started to draw and paint in the mid-1950s. His early works were composed of white paintings and sculptures, which he defined as "informal" because they bore no figuration or color. With these works, he investigated the idea of "randomness" as a principle of order with the aim of achieving absolute objectivity. During this time, he was actively involved in the exhibitions and publications of the international ZERO movement. From 1964 onward, his concern for the relationship between humanity and nature took a leading role in his work, and he developed a unique oeuvre in which he juxtaposed art, science, and philosophy with the reality of the world. In 1975, he decided that the phenomena and processes of nature constitute the physical and autonomous work of art that he, as an artist, should represent.
Journey and the Guide
Publisher: Windhorse Publications

Maitreyabandhu takes you on the journey with practical week-by-week exercises, focusing on cultivating mindfulness, simplifying your life and knowing yourself.
