Wherever you go there you are

A while back I finished a book by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever you go there you are - Mindfulness Mediation in Everyday Life. I love Jon's low key style. The book which consists of very short chapters, most of them only a few pages long, covers different aspects of mindfulness and meditation. There are also practices... Continue Reading →

Finding Your Howl

As I mention in Lightworker I woke up one morning and had two words ringing in my head. The first one, ochoa, is Basque and means wolf. That did not ring any bell back then but today it makes sense. I came across Finding Your Howl over at ChangeThis. To find our howl we have... Continue Reading →

Arriving at your own Door

I am reading Arriving at your own Door - 108 lessons in mindfulness by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The book consists of qoutes (verses) that are compiled from Coming to our senses: Healing ourselves and the world through mindfulness. On the back of the book it says: A quiet trust in awareness sometimes requires inspiration and gentle... Continue Reading →

What is Zen?

I have read the book What is Zen? by Alan Watts. The book contains a selection of Alan's talks and the four parts are about: • A simple way, A difficult way • Zen reconsidered • Space • Zen mind I like the book, it is easy to read yet it makes you think and... Continue Reading →

The book is divided into three parts, each one dealing with one of the three secrets which are: Fine-tune your actions Put your mind at ease Discover the divine power Under finetuning your actions is...

The Manifestation Wheel

I have finished a really interesting book titled The Manifestation Wheel: A Practical Process for Creating Miracles written by Alan Seale. The Manifestation Wheel is an interesting concept created by Alan Seale and partly based on the Lakota medicine wheel. The Manifestation Wheel is made up of eight “houses” or steps: intention, peace, energy, guidance,... Continue Reading →

The Starfish and the Spider

The Starfish and the Spider: The Unstoppable Power of Leaderless Organizations is written by Ori Brafman and Rod Beckström. It is a very interesting book that compare two different kind of organizations but also mentions a hybrid or combo version, best of both. Spiders are centralized, command and control, organizations. Historical examples are the Spanish... Continue Reading →

Three books by Robin Sharma

I have read and reviewed three books by Robin Sharma. Here is a short summary and links to my reviews. The monk who sold his Ferrari is a great book that covers much of Eastern and Western wisdom around life and success. The book is well written and the concepts are nicely fitted into a...

The 5-minute Meditator

I have finished a book written by Eric Harrison and titled The 5-minute Meditator, I like it a lot. It is the perfect book for people who 'have no time to meditate'. The book has about a dozen 'spot meditations' lasting from half a minute to five minutes. Short meditations are just as effective as... Continue Reading →

An Eater’s Manifesto

I found An Eater’s Manifesto over at ChangeThis. The manifesto by Michael Pollan is an interesting read, a teaser for his book "In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto" but well worth reading. Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. That, more or less, is the short answer to the supposedly incredibly complicated and confusing... Continue Reading →
