Earlier this year I was involved in a collaboration of editors and writers to produce a book called Mindful Heroes. 26 writers worked together to create this substantial text which has now been published (details below). I am pleased to say that I am able to share with you the Chapter I wrote, Mindful Learning and Coaching in Alpine Skiing, which can be downloaded here.
“Mindful Heroes – stories of journeys that changed lives “, has 25 chapters written by 26 mindfulness practitioners and teachers from 10 countries. Each of the authors has creatively applied mindfulness to a variety of settings across Education, Health, Business, Sport, Creative Arts and Community work. In the book they share the moving stories of their personal and professional journeys of transformation with you. It aims to enable the reader to explore the applications of mindfulness as you learn from recent research and engage with your own journey of mindfulness practice.
Everyone loves a good story. This book tells the stories of a constellation of Mindful Heroes: ordinary people just like us, who followed the path of mindfulness and went on an inner journey that would change their world. Each author has engaged with an in-depth study and courageous exploration of mindfulness practice. Having experienced for themselves the benefits of mindful awareness, compassion and insight, they then wanted to give others the opportunity to discover their own potential.
