Reviews

"Holly Rogers has written a unique introduction to becoming mindful, deeply grounded in her own experience. She has both practiced herself for years and taught students at Duke, and the book reflects both. Wise, but not obscure. Practical, but lighthearted and inspiring." --Mirabai Bush, meditation and mindfulness teacher, cofounder and senior fellow of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, and coauthor of Contemplative Practices in Higher Education "Having just shepherded two daughters through their twenties, I can say with confidence that it is not an easy time these days, and the statistics on mental health challenges for that age group bear that out. Holly Rogers not only knows plenty of people trying to start out their lives during that difficult stage, but she cares deeply about what they need. In this book, she offers insights and practical tools that will shape the present and the future of many young people." --Barry Boyce, editor in chief at Mindful magazine and mindful.org "In The Mindful Twenty-Something, Holly invites young people to explore mindfulness and meditation with a curious and open mind. With warmth and a clear, direct tone, she speaks candidly about the precious and fleeting nature of our lives, advocating that mindfulness and meditation are the path to fully engaging with the present moment. Allowing for skepticism and doubt, this book helps bridge the gap between understanding mindfulness and developing a regular meditation practice." --Jeanne Mahon, MEd, director of the Center for Wellness at Harvard University "Easy to read and immensely practical, The Mindful Twenty-Something is a 21st century book, grounded in ancient ways of practice. In it, Holly Rogers' professional experience and her love of mindful practice come together in a way that will be of great benefit to many." --Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness "Mystified by meditation? Engaging, accessible, and down to earth, The Mindful Twenty-Something has everything you need to start meditating and more." --Sumi Loundon Kim, Buddhist chaplain at Duke University "Based in ancient contemplative wisdom, modern science, and Holly Rogers' extensive experience working with college students and young adults, this book is an excellent resource for a person of 'any-something' age who wishes to begin or learn more about practicing mindfulness." --Jeff Brantley, MD, assistant consulting professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical Center; founding faculty member of Duke Integrative Medicine, and founder and director of its Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program; and author of Calming Your Angry Mind "Given the current state of higher education today, to call The Mindful Twenty-Something timely is an understatement. The conversational tone offers an approachable presentation of mindfulness appropriate for many of the complexities that modern undergraduate and graduate students face. The simple practices outlined in this book ensure both the accessibility and applicability of mindfulness and will undoubtedly be a valuable resource not only for students but those working with contemplation in higher education." --Jason Jones, PhD, Contemplative Sciences Center, University of Virginia Holly Rogers has written a unique introduction to becoming mindful, deeply grounded in her own experience.
