Welcome to Mindful Voices.
Welcome to Mindful Voices, our new blog area. It’s populated by prominent teachers, leaders, and writers in the world of mindfulness. I’ve come to know each of them over the years and I can tell you they’re fine people who are good at what they do and have interesting things to say—and they are all good listeners. So hit them with questions and comments. They’re only a click away.
In short, they are:
Elisha Goldstein—on Mental Health— has been using mindfulness for years in his therapy practice in Los Angeles and is author of a respected guide to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.
For many years Janice Marturano—on Leadership—served as deputy general counsel for General Mills. She’s been practicing mindfulness in corporate environments for many years and helping other leaders to do so.
Patricia (Tish) Jennings—on Education—is a longtime educator who helps other teachers apply social and emotional learning, mindfulness, and other contemplative practices in the classroom.
Gina Biegel—on Teen Life—teaches mindfulness to teens and to people who work with teens. She has an intimate understanding of the teen perspective, and often embodies its open and spontaneous spirit.
Ed Halliwell—The Examined Life—is a very thoughtful fellow from the UK. An excellent journalist and a mindfulness practitioner and teacher, Ed came to our attention through his work for the Guardian. He keeps his eye on how mindfulness is entering society at large— and also how it’s working in his own mind.
Kelly McGonigal—Heart and Mind—teaches meditation, compassion practices, and yoga at Stanford University and environs. Her posts will cover all of those areas and more—in a friendly unpretentious voice.
In Your Stories, you are the blogger. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a questionnaire. Fill it out and we’ll try to include your profile on this blog.
And finally, I and various colleagues around here and occasionally a guest, will share their thoughts in this space—Editors’ Blog.
Mindful is being created together with you. Please share your thoughts with me and with our team and with our bloggers—early and often. We want to get to know you. Don’t be shy.
Note: the older posts in the Editors’ Blog have been imported from an area on our site we called What is Mindful, which has now entered the ether.
