I asked my mum how to spell Wednesday once and every time I have spelled it since I hear her enunciating each syllable as a reminder that, when separated, it sounds like it is spelled: "WED-NES-DAY!". My mum is from Scotland so my mind's ear presents the memory with her accent. 
We are pleased to be selling books at A Mindful Society's annual conference for the sixth year in a row. This year is a little different as it is all online. We are very excited to  be a part of it and we welcome the new virtual approach that has been born out of where the world finds itself at present.
We have a bit of a Mindfulness theme this week that includes the spicy new title: Neurodharma. Please see the huge blue picture below. Thank-you to Penguin Random House for ensuring we received this brand new book in time for for Rick Hanson's May 1st pre-conference keynote!
Regardless of how much your interests align with mindfulness, or with anything else, please take care and hang in there. Much love from 98 Harbord street.

Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom
Rick Hanson

Buddha's Brain joins the forces of modern neuroscience with ancient contemplative teachings to show readers how they can work toward greater emotional well-being, healthier relationships, more effective actions, and deepened religious and spiritual understanding. This book will explain how the core elements of both psychological well-being and religious or spiritual life-virtue, mindfulness, and wisdom-are based in the core functions of the brain: regulating, learning, and valuing. [More. . .]

The human brain is the most complex object in the known universe.

In the Face of Fear: Buddhist Wisdom for Challenging Times
Barry Boyce (ed)

Most of us have never experienced such deep anxiety and uncertainty in the world as we are in these current times; this anthology of Buddhist teachings offers an antidote. While we can’t control the home foreclosures, job losses, dwindling savings, and the other myriad challenges facing our society, Buddhism teaches us that there is one thing we can always control: our own state of mind. How we react to the ups and downs of life makes all the difference, and Buddhism offers a wealth of wisdom and practices to help us maintain a stable, wise, and helpful state of mind no matter what happens. [More. . .]

A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, Second Edition | fully revised & updated; includes 32 downloadable guided meditations
Bob Stahl and Elisha Goldstein

Stress and pain are nearly unavoidable in our daily lives; they are part of the human condition. This stress can often leave us feeling irritable, tense, overwhelmed, and burned-out. The key to maintaining balance is responding to stress not with frustration and self-criticism, but with mindful, nonjudgmental awareness of our bodies and minds. Impossible? Actually, it's easier than it seems. [More. . .]
