  • How gratefulness leads to mindfulness

    The Huffington Post - 07/23/2015

    In The Atlantic this month, Prof. David Desteno, of Northeastern University, describes research showing mindfulness training can encourage compassion for others:

    “Mindfulness’s most profound benefit may not be the one that’s most often touted–adapting to a stressful, competitive, even unkind 24/7 world. Instead, meditation might fundamentally alter how we treat those around us.”

    So truth, attention and compassion come together in the same moment. The result, for me, is like a cool draft of water on a parching-hot summer’s day.

    There are lots of ways to be mindful — from mindful yoga to meditation to prayer to being in nature.
