In Nawang Khechog’s view, one of the wonders and marvels of being human is that we can choose to nurture and cultivate kindness, compassion, and love. These precious human values are the foundation of true happiness and are at the core of humanity’s possibility of peaceful coexistence with one another, with other species, and with our environment. Based on his eleven years as a monk, studying Buddhist philosophy and meditation with the Dalai Lama, as well as his own highly regarded workshops, Awakening Kindness details the many ways we can enrich our lives by simply being kind to each other and ourselves. Nawang includes a range of simple meditations, mantras, and practices that are easy to incorporate into even the busiest modern life. Filled with the philosophy of many cultures and religions, and touching on everything from human nature as it’s portrayed in film to scientific support of our limitless capacity for love, kindness, and compassion, Awakening Kindness takes the reader on a life-changing journey where we all can take part in creating a culture of kindness.

Move your compassion into action and help change our world. In her first book, The Business of Kindness: Creating Work Environments Where People Thrive, Olivia McIvor wrestles with the consequences of a business world that too often stifles genuine kindness, and explores the vital need to create respectful, engaged workplaces. Her second book, Four Generations, One Workplace: Sharing in the Information Age, harvests the experience and wisdom of each generation and provides practical tools for collaboration and knowledge transfer. Compassion is the bedrock of a healthy society. McIvor’s Turning Compassion into Action urges each of us to craft engaged and meaningful lives. She believes we must each embrace the innate wellspring of compassion within us and impact our world, one action at a time. To actualize compassion we need to transform our pessimism into optimism; connect to the deeper purpose of our work; expand our communities to create more belonging; and be intentionally present with ourselves and others. This book is a call to action to bring more compassion to the forefront of our lives, our work, and our world. __________________________ “Olivia McIvor’s new book, Turning Compassion into Action, is a tour de force of insight, story-telling, philosophy, and practical advice for how to build a global movement as well as how to let compassion light up your own life. McIvor tells of her own journey through volunteering locally and globally and leading workshops on kindness and compassion in the workplace. She points to the sudden growth of a global movement spurred by Karen Armstrong’s Charter for Compassion. This book is a joyous excursion of the mind and the heart, leading us to the more important question we can ask ourselves: What would compassion do here?” --Andrew Himes, Executive Director, Compassionate Action Network __________________________ We are all “ordinary people” —brave men and women doing heroic acts of kindness and compassion, every day in the simplest of ways. This book is a call for action to bring more compassion to the forefront of your life, your work and your world.

Caring Is a Competitive Advantage Suffering in the workplace can rob our colleagues and coworkers of humanity, dignity, and motivation and is an unrecognized and costly drain on organizational potential. Marshaling evidence from two decades of field research, scholars and consultants Monica Worline and Jane Dutton show that alleviating such suffering confers measurable competitive advantages in areas like innovation, collaboration, service quality, and talent attraction and retention. They outline four steps for meeting suffering with compassion and show how to build a capacity for compassion into the structures and practices of an organization—because ultimately, as they write, “Compassion is an irreplaceable dimension of excellence for any organization that wants to make the most of its human capabilities.”

Everyone appreciates kindness. A smile, a few friendly words, a show of concern when we're troubled or feeling unwell, an offer of help - gestures of kindness like these brighten our day and ease whatever sadness we may feel in our hearts. Feeling that "someone cares" fulfills a very deep need that we all have. And just as we appreciate other people being kind to us, others appreciate it when we are kind to them. That is why it is important to learn to be kind, because it will help make our relationships and interactions with others more satisfying and less problematic. But it's not always easy to be kind. Sometimes our hearts are filled with anger, jealousy, or pride, and being kind is the last thing we feel like doing. Or we get so caught up in our work and responsibilities that we find no time to think of others and their needs, no time to be kind and gentle. However, these problems can be remedied. The Buddhist tradition offers a wealth of methods that can be used to overcome whatever prevents us from being kind and gentle. Some of these methods are explored and explained in this book - in a way that will allow you to practice them in your daily life. Awakening the Kind Heart offers powerful and inviting meditation techniques to activate the heart of kindness within us all - a modern and motivating interpretation of traditional and powerful practices.

Many people seeking inner peace and self-cultivation look to the East for inspiration and guidance. Author Jack Kornfield himself pursued rigorous training in traditional Buddhist monasteries in Southeast Asia. Here he shares the fruits of four decades of study and practice in the East and the West, highlighting one essential insight: true wisdom is found nowhere else than right here in this very moment, as we go about our daily lives. We need not travel to an ashram or a meditation retreat--our households, relationships, and work lives give us profound opportunities to awaken our buddha nature, our natural wisdom and loving-kindness. In this book, Kornfield shares this and other key lessons he has learned studying with some of the most revered Buddhist masters of the twentieth century. Topics include: realizing our full potential, conscious parenting, common obstacles to awakening, spirituality and sexuality, enlightened political action, and much more. Previously in hardback.
