I am pleased to share the release of the inaugural volume in our new Buddhist Foundations series.
Mindfulness: Where It Comes From and What It Means
by Sarah Shaw
Oxford University lecturer Dr. Sara Shaw presents perhaps the most complete overview of mindfulness, its Buddhist roots and evolution, and its variety across Buddhist traditions. There is something here for everyone and the reader is sure to walk away with a deeper appreciation of the centrality of mindfulness in all its manifestations from Pali through the Sanskrit, Tibetan, and Chinese traditions.
There is also an audiobook version on Audible which you can sample here: http://shmb.la/buddhist-mindfulness-audio
Additionally, we have released the following books recently which, while not authored by academics, may be of interest to many on this list for classroom use, etc.
