“The success of an intervention depends on the interior condition of the intervenor.”

- Bill O’Brien, former CEO of Hanover Insurance


Awareness practices are crucial for those who are called on to remain responsive in an ever-changing landscape. Cultivating this interior condition takes practice. And practice means: something we do every day in order to strengthen a particular capacity, much like regular exercise routines to strengthen particular muscles.

Here are some resources to train the muscle of attention and tap into our curiosity, compassion, and courage -- so that we can also do so in more challenging times.

Jon Kabat-Zinn shared a powerful practice with us on Waking Up.
