Las neurociencias han descubierto que la práctica de mindfulness favorece la disminución de la ansiedad y el estrés e incrementa la concentración. Los padres pueden mejorar la comunicación en el hogar, reducir la conflictividad y contribuir al bienestar. Lo mismo sucede en las aulas o los consultorios. Vivimos acelerados, ansiosos por el futuro o emocionalmente cargados por asuntos del pasado, y el estrés o la insatisfacción nos invaden. Pero con solo prestar atención, ya activamos de forma natural los recursos que nos permiten mejorar nuestra calidad de vida. Esto nos posibilita despegarnos de nuestros condicionamientos para observarnos y registrarnos, o para captar a un hijo, un alumno o un paciente tal como son. Estar atentos siempre es cuidar. Integrando el cuerpo y la mente, mindfulness nos entrena en la atención, momento a momento, amorosamente y con curiosidad. Ayuda a que padres, educadores, profesionales de la salud, niños y jóvenes aumenten su capacidad de estar más despejados y conectados. Basada en su experiencia como terapeuta y entrenadora en mindfulness, Marina Lisenberg ofrece en este libro recursos para lidiar con el estrés y el sufrimiento innecesarios. Para que tanto los adultos como los niños y los jóvenes descubran los beneficios de la práctica de la atención plena y puedan elegir libremente la forma de darle sentido y plenitud a su vida.

The perfect gift! A specially priced, beautifully designed hardcover edition of The Joy of the Gospel with a foreword by Robert Barron and an afterword by James Martin, SJ. “The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus… In this Exhortation I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy, while pointing out new paths for the Church’s journey in years to come.” – Pope Francis This special edition of Pope Francis's popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation. Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.” Profound in its insight, yet warm and accessible in its tone, The Joy of the Gospel is a call to action to live a life motivated by divine love and, in turn, to experience heaven on earth. Includes a foreword by Robert Barron, author of Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith and James Martin, SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage From the Hardcover edition.

“If you’ve never read it, read it now.”—Arianna Huffington, O, The Oprah Magazine Landmark, groundbreaking, classic—these adjectives barely do justice to the pioneering vision and lasting impact of The Feminine Mystique. Published in 1963, it gave a pitch-perfect description of “the problem that has no name”: the insidious beliefs and institutions that undermined women’s confidence in their intellectual capabilities and kept them in the home. Writing in a time when the average woman first married in her teens and 60 percent of women students dropped out of college to marry, Betty Friedan captured the frustrations and thwarted ambitions of a generation and showed women how they could reclaim their lives. Part social chronicle, part manifesto, The Feminine Mystique is filled with fascinating anecdotes and interviews as well as insights that continue to inspire. This 50th–anniversary edition features an afterword by best-selling author Anna Quindlen as well as a new introduction by Gail Collins.

Bestselling author of Return to Love and Law of Divine Compensation, Marianne Williamson shows people how to live without fear or worry in The Gift of Change. The time in which we now live is more difficult and stressful than people are willing to admit. We live with an abiding sense of collective anxiety. Williamson shows how we are paralyzed in our current state of fear and anger because we are not facing and dealing with the true causes of our anxieties and fears. Williamson reveals that fear and worry do not need to be the only tools in our tool box for dealing with problems in the world. As we learn to trust God and the love that surrounds us and guides us, we will see that what causes us pain is an opportunity for growth, healing, and miracles that can transform us and our world. Williamson delivers hope and healing as she illuminates ten basic changes that each of us can make as we learn to view the world through the eyes of love instead of fear.
