Imagine this: You have fewer meetings because you've chosen wisely. To those meetings that you do attend, you bring a strong intention and full engagement. As a result, connected, conscious dialogue flourishes. Others feel seen, met, and heard. High-quality work gets done.

Trying To Be Super-Woman

A few years back I realized how futile my attempts at being a super-woman were. I never tried to dodge bullets or jump from the roof and fly (even thought flying would have been a practical super-power to have...). But I did try to be mentally & emotionally indestructible.

Sunday Roundup

Arianna Huffington | Posted 04.17.2014 | Politics
Arianna Huffington

This week was about storms and climate change. First, Missouri football star Michael Sam ignited a storm and changed the climate in the NFL by coming out, making him, when he's drafted, the league's first openly gay player. A blizzard of mostly positive -- and a few regrettably negative -- reactions ensued. Climate change was less constructive in Sochi, where thermometers hit the 50s, giving the place a warmer Wednesday than many host cities of Summer Olympics. Along America's East Coast, however, yet another winter storm descended, which in turn ignited a chilly exchange between New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Roker over school closures. Taking on special interests is one thing, but picking a fight with a beloved weatherman is another. Meanwhile, I was lucky enough to be in balmy San Francisco for the Wisdom 2.0 conference, devoted to spreading mindfulness in a stormy world. Not a moment too soon.

Could Mindfulness Start In The Heart?

HeartMath LLC

How does the heart relate to mindfulness? Mindfulness is about being present to what you're feeling, thinking and sensing. Connecting to our hearts enables us to be in "the heart of the moment," and if you don't want to get hooked into those thoughts and feelings, you let them pass through.
