Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World

In today’s fractured world, we’re flooded constantly with breaking news that causes anger, grief, and pain. People are feeling more stressed-out than ever, and in the face of this fear and anxiety, they can feel so burnt out and overwhelmed that they end up frozen in their tracks and can’t do anything. In Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in Lovingkindness meditation, shares sage advice and indispensable techniques to help free ourselves from these negative feelings and actions. She teaches us that meditation is not a replacement for taking action, but rather a way to practice generosity with ourselves and summon the courage to break through boundaries, reconnect to a movement that’s bigger than ourselves, and have the energy to stay active.

Consulting with veteran activists and social change agents in a variety of fields, Salzberg collects and shares their wisdom and offers the best practical advice to foster transformation in both ourselves and in society. To help tame our inner landscape or chaos, Salzberg offers mindfulness practices that will help readers cultivate a sense of agency and stay engaged in the long-term struggle for social change. Real Change guides us to embody the fundamental principles of mindfulness practice toward greater clarity and confidence so that we can create a better world. Set for release in hardcover, e-book, and audio-book formats in September 2020 from Flatiron Books, a Macmillan Audio production. For pre-order information visit: http://bit.ly/realchangebook
