Debating Yoga & Mindfulness in Schools by Candy Gunther Brown

Debating Yoga and Mindfulness in Public Reforming Secular Education or Reestablishing Religion? by Candy Gunther Brown
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3,3 Mb
Overview: Yoga and mindfulness activities, with roots in Asian traditions such as Hinduism or Buddhism, have been brought into growing numbers of public schools since the 1970s. While they are commonly assumed to be secular educational tools, Candy Gunther Brown asks whether religion is truly left out of the equation in the context of public-school curricula. An expert witness in four legal challenges, Brown scrutinized unpublished trial records, informant interviews, and legal precedents, as well as insider documents, some revealing promoters of "Vedic victory" or "stealth Buddhism" for public-school children. The legal challenges are fruitful cases for Brown’s analysis of the concepts of religious and secular.

While notions of what makes something religious or secular are crucial to those who study religion, they have special significance in the realm of public and legal norms. They affect how people experience their lives, raise their children, and navigate educational systems. The question of religion in public education, Brown shows, is no longer a matter of jurisprudence focused largely on the establishment of a Protestant Bible or nonsectarian prayer. Instead, it now reflects an increasingly diverse American religious landscape. Reconceptualizing secularization as transparency and religious voluntarism, Brown argues for an opt-in model for public-school programs.

Mindfulness On the Go: Discover how to be mindful wherever you are-at home or work, on your daily commute, or whenever you’re on the move by Anna Black
Requirements: EPUB Reader 4.53 MB
Overview: Whether you are at home or at work, on your daily commute or travelling, you can practise mindfulness to decrease stress and improve your health and wellbeing.
tis often challenging to weave mindfulness into our day as we get caught up in the busy-ness of life. It can feel overwhelming sometimes to know what to do and how to start doing something different and having to decide stops us doing anything at all. Mindfulness on the Go is designed to address this problem. It introduces the essential pillars of mindfulness and how to cultivate it, then offers 52 suggestions, divided into practices and activities, to start using it every day. Practices are mini meditations to do while you are out and about, while activities focus more on becoming aware of your habitual patterns of behaviour, as well as how mindfulness can help you to cultivate new ones. By focusing on just one thing per day, it makes it easier to remember rather than just feeling you should be mindful all the time. As you become familiar with the type of practices, you will find that you begin to do them without the prompts, and mindfulness will become part of your daily life.
