Minding the Bedside: Nursing from the Heart of the Awakened Mind
Minding the Bedside: Nursing from the Heart of the Awakened Mind is a book about mindfulness, meditation and compassion practices, written specifically for nurses. However, it can be read and bring benefit to anyone who would like to learn to work with their mind and heart in being more present in their daily life. Dedicated to the creation of a community of people whose focus is on bringing mindfulness, meditation, and compassion practices into their life and in sharing their experience.
Published in September, 2011, Minding the Bedside is a “guide to changing how to work with your mind and thereby become a more focused and compassionate human being.” In addition to resources related to meditation and compassion, there are links to articles on research in mind-body medicine, audio and video segments on lectures given by leaders in the field of research, and guest-author presentations and postings.
Minding the Bedside is a rare and timely work of art. Jerome Stone leads us on an illuminating and heart-opening exploration into the true nature of mind, presence, compassion and the healing relationship. Calling on his decades of experience…he weaves a magnificent fusion of teachings, stories and insights that will inspire any health care practitioner (not just nurses) to rediscover their art as a blessed opportunity to accelerate their own personal awakening…Minding the Bedside is an outstanding contribution that should be required reading for health care practitioners from all disciplines.
