After much contemplation, I finally wrote about my experience with #Vipassana meditation.…

Sharing some quotes/excerpts/concepts in the thread below.
#Vipassanā in Pali means “#insight” or “seeing deeply”.

The practice of Vipassanā meditation, thus, revolves around training your mind to observe reality as it is, and not as you wish it to be. And in the process, overcome #suffering.
It is a #meditation technique that the #Buddha mastered over time and found to be the most effective in eradicating all kinds of suffering in the world.

Got a new––and fairly critical––chapter on *#mindfulness-based interventions* coming soon in a book on mind–body health in schools.

For all ya'll who are interested ... here's the #PREPRINT! Hope this helps contribute to better research and practice.
To motivate folks to actually read this chapter, I'll share some "big points" buried in its pages.

Big point #1/n (pp. 4–5): There's a difference between *process* & *primary* outcomes for MBI, and evidence of both is needed to differentiate *purported* vs. *verified* MBI.
Big point #2/n (pp. 7–8): There's no scientific reason (yet) to prefer any one trade-marked MBI to any other in schools. This decision is likely based on pragmatics, not evidence.

(*Interpretive note: PMA = present moment awareness; RWA = responding with acceptance.)

A ver, que se está liando con el tema #mindfulness y los cursos financiados por el Gobierno en noticias como…

Given the array of emotions & negative thoughts that people may be experiencing after this injustice, it’s a good time to stress the value of living the dialectic between intellectualization &raw emotionality. Walk the middle path. Stay present. Stay grounded. Stay in #WiseMind.
Practicing #mindfulness (meditation, focus) helps people get in/stay in a wise mind state, a state of flow, immersing oneself into activities, being one with what you are doing. #DBT
In other words, to cope with political (or personal) injustice & accompanying negative emotions & thoughts, one could throw themselves into something creative, their work, some activity that benefits themselves or society (#sublimation). *Note Netflix binging is not a flow state.

1/ Attention is what steers your perceptions and controls reality. #Mindfulness #ProductDesign #startups

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.
