Details: Product Description A 21st century book, grounded in ancient ways of practice." -Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness In The Mindful Twenty-Something, the cofounder of the extremely popular Koru Mindfulness program developed at Duke University presents a unique, evidence-based approach to help you make important life decisions with clarity and confidence. As a twenty-something, you may feel like you are being pulled in dozen different directions. With the daily tumult, busyness, and major life changes you experience as a young adult, you may also be particularly vulnerable to stress and its negative effects. Emerging adulthood, which occurs between the ages of 18 and 29, is a developmental stage of life when you're faced with important decisions about school, relationships, sex, your career, and more. With so much going on, you need a guide to help you navigate with less stress and more ease. The Koru Mindfulness program, developed at Duke University and already in use on numerous college campuses-including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Dartmouth, and several others-and in treatment centers across the country, is the only evidence-based mindfulness training program for young adults that has been empirically proven to have significant benefits for sleep, perceived stress, and self-compassion. Now, with The Mindful Twenty-Something, this popular program is accessible to all young adults struggling with stress. With Koru Mindfulness and the practical tools you'll learn from this acceptance-based, proven-effective approach, you'll be able to cultivate the compassion and mindfulness skills you need to manage life's challenges from a calm, balanced center, regardless of what comes your way." Review Given the current state of higher education today, to call The Mindful Twenty-Something timely is an understatement. The conversational tone offers an approachable presentation of mindfulness appropriate for many of the complexities that modern undergraduate and graduate students face. The simple practices outlined in this book ensure both the accessibility and applicability of mindfulness and will undoubtedly be a valuable resource not only for students but those working with contemplation in higher education." -Jason Jones, PhD, Contemplative Sciences Center, University of Virginia "Based in ancient contemplative wisdom, modern science, and Holly Rogers' extensive experience working with college students and young adults, this book is an excellent resource for a person of 'any-something' age who wishes to begin or learn more about practicing mindfulness." - Jeff Brantley, MD, assistant consulting professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical Center; founding faculty member of Duke Integrative Medicine, and founder and director of its Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program; and author of Calming Your Angry Mind "Mystified by meditation? Engaging, accessible, and down to earth, The Mindful Twenty-Something has everything you need to start meditating and more." - Sumi Loundon Kim, Buddhist chaplain at Duke University "Easy to read and immensely practical, The Mindful Twenty-Something is a 21st century book, grounded in ancient ways of practice. In it, Holly Rogers' professional experience and her love of mindful practice come together in a way that will be of great benefit to many." - Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness "In The Mindful Twenty-Something, Holly invites young people to explore mindfulness and meditation with a curious and open mind. With warmth and a clear, direct tone, she speaks candidly about the precious and fleeting nature of our lives, advocating that mindfulness and meditation are the path to fully engaging with the present moment. Allowing for skepticism and doubt, this book helps bridge the gap between understanding mindfulness and developing a regular meditation practice." -Jeanne Maho
