Liberating Mindfulness - From Billion-Dollar Industry to Engaged Spirituality
Author Gail J. Stearns
“Using feminist critical theory and weaving in her Christian background and other depth practices, Stearns asks hard questions about the mindfulness field: What exactly is its promise of happiness? Can it be divorced from Western consumerist values? Is mindfulness contributing to systems of oppression or freeing us from them? In this thought-provoking book, she invites us to be mindful about mindfulness.” -Diana Winston, director of mindfulness education, UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, and author of The Little Book of Being
“At a time when ‘spirituality’ and ‘mindfulness’ have become buzzwords that can seem indistinguishable from the ‘self-help’ and even ‘business’ sections of bookstores, Stearns calls us to something higher and deeper: a robust model of spiritual life that transforms the self and our relationship with God and community.
