Everyone experiences grief differently after the loss of a loved one. Some people find solace in comforting quotes and warm words, while others feel a need to take action – to do something to memorialise their loss. And some benefit from both approaches. Here’s a path forward for you, no matter how you process your grief.
YOUR GRIEF, YOUR WAY features:
· Multiple ways to process grief: Find relief through short meditations,
mindful memories, journaling prompts, concrete actions and more.
· A year of daily messages of comfort: Each page includes a quote and a
short paragraph about grief along with a practical tip – something you
can do to tend to your grief.
· Comfort and practicality in short spurts: Discover strength and support
in these bite-size nuggets, since grief reduces the ability to focus.
· Quotes from a wide range of grievers: Tend to your grief with
thoughtful words of people who have been in your shoes.
Whether you’re looking for inspiration, a practical way to honour your loved one or both, YOUR GRIEF, YOUR WAY helps you navigate life after loss.£12.99 Add to basket
Everyone is talking about mindfulness, but how does it actually work and how can it help you?
Mindfulness is a simple yet radical practice that can completely transform your life. Paddy Brosnan worked for many years as an investment advisor but felt trapped in a cycle of anxiety and anger. When he began practising mindfulness every day, he found that his relationships became more profound, his interactions with others more honest and his daily frustrations and anxieties simply vanished. In other words, mindfulness helped him calm down, and he became truly happy.
This Works is the collection of tools and exercises that Paddy teaches in his workshops and events, and includes examples of everyday mindfulness from his own family life. It shows you that literally anyone can learn to meditate, and you don’t have to become a Buddhist monk to be truly zen. Through simple daily exercises, you’ll learn that mindfulness is not something you do, but something you are.
Or, put simply, mindfulness can help you be truly happy.£10.99 Add to basket
Photographed by Manuel Bauer and published on the occasion of the Dalai Lama’s 70th birthday, this work includes essays by photographer Matthieu Ricard, and conversations with the Dalai Lama by journalist Christian Schmidt. Photographer Manuel Bauer has photographed the Dalai Lama for years. The privileged access granted him by His Holiness and his entourage have enabled Bauer to offer us these powerful images, oscillating between the spiritual and the personal, the public and the intimate, the epic and the anecdotal. About the Swiss-born photographer the Dalai Lama says: “Manuel Bauer is more than simply a professional: he is a close friend of mine. He also knows a great deal about Tibet, about the Tibetan community, and he has spent years making himself familiar with our culture. He understands Tibet comprehensively, as he does the exile community; and he knows me very well too. It is this knowledge that allows his pictures to say so much about their subjects.” Bauer paints a unique and irreplaceable portrait of one of the most remarkable figures in recent history.
And the book contains numerous quotes from and interviews with the Dalai Lama, plus a full timeline about Tibet’s yesterday and today. “From the early morning until late into the night, and even in our dreams, we experience all kinds of perceptions. We go from being relaxed to being anxious, we feel sometimes anger, sometimes desire, sometimes compassion. Those are transitory states of mind that come and go, from moment to moment. But there must indeed be something that is aware of all this, a continuity of cognition that keeps on experiencing it even after we fall asleep. Yet that something is usually hidden to us, as if behind a curtain. So we need to remove that curtain.” “Promoting science is very important. After all, it is looking for the same thing as Buddhism: the truth! I am more and more convinced that Buddhist monks, too, should study modern science. They could use science to help understand the nature of atoms and quarks, which would in turn help them to grasp the physical aspects of the Buddhist definition of the transitory nature of all things. That is very important.
On the other hand, modern science is not very advanced in the understanding of consciousness, although consciousness, or awareness, is a major physical aspect.”
