Editor of Minding the Bedside

Here is a partial list of interviews and reviews related to the book, Minding the Bedside: Nursing from the Heart of the Awakened Mind.


  • Nurse.com – If you’ve dabbled in meditation how-to books before, there’s something different about this one. [Jerome] Stone writes in a conversational style that makes you feel like you’re hanging out with a fun co-worker who just happens to have the inner peace of a Buddhist monk.
  • Digital Doorway – Jerome Stone’s “Minding the Bedside: Nursing From the Heart of the Awakened Mind” is an invitation to nurses to embrace our work, make friends with our minds, and use the power of our minds and our deep-seated compassion to transform every aspect of our work…This book and its lessons are a gift to nurses and to the nursing profession–not to mention the healthcare industry and the patients whom it serves. For those who choose to unwrap this gift, there is much transformation in store. If not now, when? If not here, where? If not us, who?
  • Amazon – An excellent & engagingly-written book, and of interest outside its primary audience of medical professionals. Reading it as I have, as a once and future patient, it has so much to say about the fundamental, and painful, situations I will face, and how I should live my life now, knowing what the future may hold. It has already provided me with practical insight into the people providing care for family members, to understand what they do and judge how well they do it.
  • Tataatsu – “Minding the Bedside” is a book with a powerful message about the transformation of personal energy into well-being over time. The underlying assumption is that negative stress does not solve problems; on the contrary, it behaves like “adding fuel to fire.” To derive benefits from Stone’s ideas, they should be practiced in the mind and heart in daily life.
  • My Burnout ThingDo you have a motto for nurses? “…establish a daily routine of working with your mind. Whatever method you choose, stick to it and practice it formally so that you can access it at work. So, the slogan? Care for your mind, care for your heart, the care for your patient will follow.”
  • Interview in Rewire Me – Perhaps surprisingly, Stone counsels his clients—as he would frazzled travelers—to try to embrace their unease. “Anger can be transformed into comfort,” Stone said. “And so too can stress. If I am secure in my mind, I don’t have a problem going through the T.S.A. line.”
