Review of Michael Lewis and Pat Conaty -- The Resilience Imperative | Resilience Now! | Scoop.it

This book starts with a macroscopic analysis of where the existing corporate capitalist economy goes wrong — the pathological effects of debt-based currency, a GDP that counts waste as “growth,” etc. — and proceeds to outline a detailed blueprint for a resilient alternative. This latter blueprint, in a series of detailed chapters, examines the authors’ proposals for a sustainable successor society.

Does Mindfulness Make You More Compassionate?

Does Mindfulness Make You More Compassionate? | Resilience Now! | Scoop.it

Research has started to document empirical evidence of this connection between mindfulness and compassion, consistently finding over the past two decades that mindfulness increases empathy and compassion for others and for oneself.

 

For example, in my first research publication, published in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine in 1998, we found that Jon Kabat-Zinn’s eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program significantly increased empathy in medical students.

 

Another study that my colleagues and I conducted, published in the International Journal of Stress Management in 2005, concluded that MBSR training increased self-compassion in health care professionals. More recently, we examined the impact of mindfulness training on counseling psychology students and discovered that it significantly increased self-compassion—which, in turn, led to declines in stress and negative emotion and increases in positive emotion.

Lucas Eaton's curator insight, May 28, 2013 11:45 PM

Interesting, through my own stress management plan i also noticed myself become more compassionate. Im no physcologist but i imagine it has something to do witht he elimination of distractions. When you eliminate distractions brought on by stress it allows you to see the world for the full picture and not the world through the distroted eye of a stressed person. When doing this you ignore the things that make you frustrated and start seeing the world as a philanthropist, a place where one can do good and help.

Mindfulness Can Improve Your Attention and Health | Scientific American

Mindfulness Can Improve Your Attention and Health | Scientific American | Resilience Now! | Scoop.it

"The opposite of a wandering mind is a mindful one. Mindfulness is a mental mode of being engaged in the present moment without evaluating or emotionally reacting to it. Hundreds of articles lay out evidence showing that training to become more mindful reduces psychological stress and improves both mental and physical health, alleviating depression, anxiety, loneliness and chronic pain...Mindfulness training works, at least in part, by strengthening the brain's ability to pay attention."

University of Miami cognitive neuroscientist Amishi Jha reviews the evidence for the beneficial effects of mindfulness training and the importance of attention regulation in mediating those effects. It's a great overview of some of the key studies so far, including some very recent and compelling research.

 

My only quibble is with her assertion that these effects are *specific* to mindfulness training. For example, she writes, "mindfulness training uniquely builds the ability to direct attention at will through the sea of internal and external stimulation while also allowing for greater awareness of what is happening in the moment." We don't actually know that yet. We have insufficient data to so decisively reject the notion that other contemplative practices might not have similar effects - comparative studies are woefully lacking at this point.

 

Similarly, she writes, "Many sages, beginning with Buddha Siddhartha Gautama, have advocated repeated engagement in these forms of meditation as a route to increasing mindfulness in daily life." The Buddha certainly packaged mindfulness training in a novel religious and psychological framework, but I would not go so far as to claim that mindfulness training *began* with this historical figure. One of the most interesting questions for contemplative science to address in the future concerns which mechanisms, if any, are truly unique to Buddhist-inspired mindfulness practices. The jury is still out.

Mindfulness training helps us develop more general awareness and more acuity of awareness.
