It's an early beta but looks promising for making more interesting presentations. Not at "swoopy" as Prezi (that's good).

Chad Estes's curator insight, May 14, 2014 10:58 AM

For many folks, that act of paying attention is intertwined with a subtle (or sometimes very noticeable) sense of muscular strain.   Coupling 'Strain' with "Attention' AUTOMATICALLY produces a disassociation between our minds and our bodies - which causes a myriad of unwanted effects.  Working in a way that facilitates an open, two way communication between our senses and our thought processes (through mindfully directed movement) is absolutely essential in de-coupling the "Tension/Attention" pattern.

If you’re a teacher, you probably don’t have oodles of free time on your hands (unless you’ve thrown lesson planning and grading your students’ work out the window!), but when you do, a good book recommendation is almost always welcome (trumped only by a good wine/beer/food recommendation!). I always enjoy a good ‘beach read’ when …

Empathy versus compassion | Wildmind Buddhist Meditation

Empathy versus compassion | Wildmind Buddhist Meditation | Supporting students learning | Scoop.it
On the Boston Review, Paul Bloom has a provocative article titled "Against Empathy." It's not advocating an uncompassionate approach to life, and in fact

 

It is worth expanding on the difference between empathy and compassion, because some of empathy’s biggest fans are confused on this point and think that the only force that can motivate kindness is empathetic arousal. But this is mistaken. Imagine that the child of a close friend has drowned.


A highly empathetic response would be to feel what your friend feels, to experience, as much as you can, the terrible sorrow and pain. In contrast, compassion involves concern and love for your friend, and the desire and motivation to help, but it need not involve mirroring your friend’s anguish.

The author poses a great question:  What if power is not about the ability to do, but the ability to not do? What if power is the ability to sit inside our experience - the good, the bad and the ugly - and learn that terrain so powerfully and palpably that little in the outside world can throw us off center?
