Six acclaimed meditation teachers and visionaries show us how to transform ourselves, our communities, and the world.
If we want to make positive outward changes in the world, we need to start making changes in our inner lives as well. It’s a truth that more and more of us are realizing.
But where to begin? According to thought leaders and neuroscientists across the globe, there’s no better place than with mindfulness meditation.
Mindfulness is a “baseline” of awareness and nonresistance available in any situation. And through mindfulness meditation, we can rewire our neural pathways to better manage our emotions, amplify attention, make wiser decisions, and improve our relationships.
What does this have to do with changing the world?
If we’re full of fear or anger or experiencing “burnout”, we can’t be fully effective in helping others. But with mindfulness and compassion on your side:
- You lay a foundation of calm.
- You amplify compassion for others and yourself.
- You gain insight into “unsolvable” problems, both personal and social.
- You begin to experience who you are as part of a greater, interconnected whole.
All of these shifts then create a ripple effect that affects your family, friends, workplace, and community.
