Mindfulness for Introverts

Once beyond a tradition\’s \”Introduction to Meditation\”, attention shifts from what (\”Sit down, shut up, pay attention\”) to how and for Westerners especially, why. Mindfulness for Introverts helped me from both a practical standpoint and a theoretical standpoint (I\’d say theological standpoint but most Buddhist traditions don\’t have a theos, a God or god). The author quotes Tara Brach, \”trance of unworthiness”, a helpful reminder that Buddhism stresses \”waking up\” from our unexamined assumptions. And the author\’s description of how to be in the world without it draining me, \”When I am mindful during teaching, I can actually transform the energy demands so they don’t feel as draining.\”  Very helpful.
