A deck of 55 mindfulness games for kids that takes a playful approach to developing attention and focus, and identifying and regulating emotions--by the author of Mindful Games and The Mindful Child.

„Wir alle, die populäre Bücher über Psychologie schreiben, sind uns bewusst, dass wir auf den Schultern von Riesen stehen, und Ellen Langer ist einer dieser Riesen.“ Malcolm Gladwell, Autor des Buchs „Blink! Die Macht des Augenblicks“ „Niemand in der Geschichte der Psychologie hat uns besser gezeigt als Ellen Langer, welche Kraft Achtsamkeit geben kann für unsere Gesundheit und unser Glück.“ Philip Zimbardo, Stanford University, Autor des Lehrbuchs „Psychologie“ Mindfulness – der achtsame Umgang mit Gedanken und Gefühlen im Zusammenspiel mit dem Umfeld versetzt uns in die Lage, innere und äußere Zwänge aufzuspüren. Ellen Langer decodiert auf sehr anschauliche Weise das Prinzip Achtsamkeit und führt lebendig und lebensnah vor, wie Menschen intelligenter, einfallsreicher und kreativer leben können. Eindrucksvoll entlarvt sie die scheinbaren Zwänge des Anpassens und Alterns und zeigt, wie man ältere Menschen davor bewahren kann, sich immer mehr zurückzuziehen, abzubauen und sich selbst aufzugeben. Ein psychologisches Sachbuch, das mehr Licht in unser Leben bringt und mehr Leben in unseren Alltag.

The techniques of mindful awareness have helped millions of adults reduce stress in their lives. Now, children—who are under more pressure than ever before—can learn to protect themselves with these well-established methods adapted for their ages. Based on a program affiliated with UCLA, The Mindful Child is a groundbreaking book, the first to show parents how to teach these transformative practices to their children. Mindful awareness works by enabling you to pay closer attention to what is happening within you—your thoughts, feelings, and emotions—so you can better understand what is happening to you. The Mindful Child extends the vast benefits of mindfulness training to children from four to eighteen years old with age-appropriate exercises, songs, games, and fables that Susan Kaiser Greenland has developed over more than a decade of teaching mindful awareness to kids. These fun and friendly techniques build kids’ inner and outer awareness and attention, which positively affects their academic performance as well as their social and emotional skills, such as making friends, being compassionate and kind to others, and playing sports, while also providing tools to manage stress and to overcome specific challenges like insomnia, overeating, ADHD, hyper-perfectionism, anxiety, and chronic pain. When children take a few moments before responding to stressful situations, they allow their own healthy inner compasses to click in and guide them to become more thoughtful, resilient, and empathetic. The step-by-step process of mental training presented in The Mindful Child provides tools from which all children—and all families—will benefit.

A mindful approach to parenting that helps children (and their parents) feel happier, healthier, calmer, and less stressed in our frenetic era Rooted in the science of the brain, and integrating cognitive neuroscience and child development, Mindful Parenting is a unique program that speaks directly to today's busy families who make up what Dr. Race calls "Generation Stress." Research has shown that mindfulness practices stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain. Regular stimulation of this part of the brain helps us feel happier, healthier, calmer, less anxious, less stressed, and makes it easier for us to concentrate and think clearly—the very behavior we are hoping our children will display. Dr. Race provides: An explanation of the way the brain works and why parents and kids today are more stressed, anxious, and angry than ever before Practical solutions to the problem: Things parents can do to change brain patterns and create a more relaxed and happier home "Brain Coolers": Quick tips that can be used in the moment to help families relax, recharge, and create happiness (such as "The Three Breath Hug") Mindful Parenting understands the realities of raising a family in our fast paced and often-frenetic world and provides hundreds of easy-to-implement solutions, both for parents and their children, to help them manage stress, create peace, and live happier lives.

Mindful is a powerful novel about child abuse. It explores the divided mind and sexuality of Ian Evans, a transvestite child whose questions about his identity initiate the onset of telepathy.Without any telepathic adult mentors to guide him through his experiences, young Ian believes he is mad because of the inexplicable, accusative and critical voices in his head. Ian ends up in a psychiatric unit run by paedophiles, where he is seriously abused because of his transvestism.He escapes to end up as a child prostitute on the streets. Winter overwhelms Ian and he is delivered to another care unit, where Doctor Mary Evans makes a breakthrough by encouraging a friendship between Ian and Sandra, a similarly abused girl. The unit is then closed and the children are placed in the community, except for Ian, the violent transvestite, and Michael, an autistic mute.In a psychiatric unit, Ian and Michael develop a symbiotic telepathic relationship, but it is misinterpreted as a sexual liaison because of Ian’s burgeoning transvestite femininity. Their separation causes Michael to commit suicide, while Ian, now living as Iona, is left alone to deal with her growing telepathic skill.The psychiatric unit proves a perfect place to practice telepathy. Iona uses her telepathic skills to get released, but then runs afoul of the military, who want to use Iona for her Mindful talents.
