Practical Advice For The Precariat
by Zeke Kō Shin Seagull 
198 pages



If you’ve ever struggled with the challenges of contemporary life, take heart. Mindfulness is a simple and powerful way of paying attention to the present moment – the timeless here-and-now – where there are no worries or concerns. It will help you connect with the only true reality – the taste of your tea, the warm sensation in your tummy – and break the cycle of chronic dissatisfaction and complaints once and for all.

In The Mindful Way through Recession, a uniquely qualified expert explains why our usual attempts to “think” our way out of a bad mood, or  “snap out of” a financial crisis by political means,  lead us deeper into the downward spiral. Through insightful lessons drawn from Eastern meditative traditions, cognitive therapy, and the latest findings from quantum-neurological research, Zeke Kō Shin Seagull demonstrates how to sidestep the mental habits that lead to despair, including depression and political radicalization, so you can face the challenges of the free market with greater equanimity while staying open to its possibilities. Tutte Wachtmeister gently and encouragingly narrates the accompanying CD of soothing, guided meditations, making this a complete package for anyone seeking to regain a sense of hope and well-being.
