The hectic pace of modern life seems to leave little time to devote to meditation, relaxation, and contemplation. But in New World Mindfulness authors Donald McCown and Marc Micozzi show how busy Americans can engage the practice of mindfulness and take advantage of its many benefits. The authors dispel the myth that mindfulness is an exotic, foreign concept and present a history of mindfulness in the West--from the American Founding Fathers, Thoreau, and Emerson up to present-day leaders such as Jon Kabat-Zinn. New World Mindfulness connects Western get-it-done pragmatism with the yearning for beauty and balance that can make a full life truly fulfilled.
