Love s Garden

These personal stories, from couples of a range of different ages and experiences, illustrate how Buddhist principles can help couples navigate any stage of their relationship.

Love s Garden

A collection of real-life Buddhist love stories, with commentary and guided exercises for couples developed by Peggy Rowe-Ward and Larry Ward, senior students and ordained Dharma teachers in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. These personal stories, from couples of a range of different ages and experiences, illustrate how Buddhist principles can help couples navigate any stage of their relationship. It took the authors some good living and good loving before they realized that the love that they were seeking was already present and available in the depths of their hearts and mind. Love does not depend on anything that is happening "Out There" and is not dependent on anything "he" or "she" might do. It depends on our own willingness to look within and to act. This insight is a result of practicing the teachings of the Buddha on right diligence and right effort. The authors have been studying and practicing with Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and they are happy to report that the practices work. In "The practice is not difficult. We simply need to get in touch with and nourish the practices that are helping us to experience peace. And then we need to stop doing the things that keep us from experiencing peace." Larry Ward Foreword by Thich Nhat Hanh

The Invisible Classroom  Relationships  Neuroscience   Mindfulness in School

Improving student learning with the tools of neuroscience and mindfulness. How is expanding students’ strengths more effective than improving their weaknesses? Why is creating a school where staff and students feel safe necessary for learning? How can anchoring with simple mindfulness practices prevent classroom behavioral problems? There is more to a classroom than just a teacher and a group of students. All classroom interactions have “invisible” neurobiological, emotional, and social aspects—the emotional histories of students, the teacher’s own background and biography. In this book, Kirke Olson takes lessons from brain science, mindfulness, and positive psychology to help teachers understand the full range of their students’ school experiences. Using its classroom-ready resources, teachers, administrators, parents, and policy makers can make the invisible visible, turning human investment in their students into the best possible learning outcomes.

Truly Sanely Deeply

The kind that lasts. The kind that brings us happiness, not a broken heart. Truly Sanely Deeply begins by comparing what we think love is, and how it’s often portrayed, with what love actually is.

Truly Sanely Deeply

In this age of social media, selfies and reality TV, it’s all too easy to become lost in the fantasy of ‘love at first sight’, ‘finding the one’ and all the other clichés that bombard our timelines and screens. How will we ever find out knight in shining armour or princess in the tower? Well, as authors Stephen McKenzie and Bernice Plant point out, it’s probably best to throw out all our ideas about what love is and instead focus on the reality. All good relationships start with really knowing ourselves and understanding why we act the way we do. Once we recognise our own life scripts, we’re in a far better position to experience real love. The kind that lasts. The kind that brings us happiness, not a broken heart. Truly Sanely Deeply begins by comparing what we think love is, and how it’s often portrayed, with what love actually is. Along the way, it also takes a look at the many and varied types of love. In Part 2, the authors move on to practical guidance for exploring common love traps and ways for implementing ‘best practice’ love. Guided reflections informed by the practice of mindfulness are included to help us identify and create our own working model for love in every facet of our life, so that we can enjoy the best possible loving relationship with parents, siblings, partners, children, friends and co-workers.

How to Be an Adult in Relationships

" In this book, Richo offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships—one that focuses not on finding an ideal mate, but on becoming a more loving and realistic person.

How to Be an Adult in Relationships

"Most people think of love as a feeling," says David Richo, "but love is not so much a feeling as a way of being present." In this book, Richo offers a fresh perspective on love and relationships—one that focuses not on finding an ideal mate, but on becoming a more loving and realistic person. Drawing on the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, How to Be an Adult in Relationships explores five hallmarks of mindful loving and how they play a key role in our relationships throughout life: 1. Attention to the present moment; observing, listening, and noticing all the feelings at play in our relationships. 2. Acceptance of ourselves and others just as we are. 3. Appreciation of all our gifts, our limits, our longings, and our poignant human predicament. 4. Affection shown through holding and touching in respectful ways. 5. Allowing life and love to be just as they are, with all their ecstasy and ache, without trying to take control. When deeply understood and applied, these five simple concepts—what Richo calls the five A's—form the basis of mature love. They help us to move away from judgment, fear, and blame to a position of openness, compassion, and realism about life and relationships. By giving and receiving these five A's, relationships become deeper and more meaningful, and they become a ground for personal transformation.

Mindfulness in Sexual and Relationship Therapy

This book was originally published as a special issue of Sexual and Relationship Therapy.

Mindfulness in Sexual and Relationship Therapy

Mindfulness represents the most significant shift in the world of counselling and psychotherapy within the last decade. Mindful approaches have been hailed as the 'third wave' of cognitive behavioural-therapy and mindfulness has been recommended – and found to be effective at treating – a wide variety of mental health issues. There has been a proliferation of popular self-help books based on mindfulness approaches, and much debate between western mindfulness practitioners and Buddhist scholars about the ways in which mindful theory and practice is being adapted for western audiences. To date, however, there has been relatively little research or writing considering the potentials of mindfulness for the arena of sexual and relationship therapy. This book aims to address this by bringing together many of the key practitioners and researchers who are working in this area. The book presents a range of perspectives on what mindful theory and practice has to offer to our understandings of, and work with, sex and relationships. This book was originally published as a special issue of Sexual and Relationship Therapy.
