Hi -

I'm posting this here 'cause I saw a discussion about mindfulness in
this group a while back.  Thought some of you might be interested.

A Mindful Life
October 1-3, 2004
A Weekend Seminar with Dr. Ellen Langer

Most of us are stressed by day-to-day living, consumed by problems in
our personal and professional lives.  Our relationships, projects, and
work never seem to go exactly as planned.  Many of us are frustrated
and unhappy, and others are just plain bored. Most of us have yet to
reach our creative potential.  Mindfulness opens us to life's
possibilities through active generation of multiple perspectives and
dynamic transformation of mindsets.  It is a way to actively engage
our world no matter what happens or how we feel.  Over 30 years of
research show that mindfulness can increase peak performance, energy,
health and longevity, self-confidence, charisma, and creativity -
affecting virtually all areas of physical, emotional, social, and
professional life.  Now it is time to apply mindfulness to your life!

Join Dr. Ellen Langer and members of her Mindfulness Lab for A Mindful
Life, an intensive weekend course in the art of living mindfully.
Through a series of interactive lectures, discussions, and activities,
you will learn how to apply mindfulness to your health, your emotions,
your relationships, your work, and all your creative and personal
endeavors. A Mindful Life is for all who are interested in exploring
the depths of their potential, and in creating freer more enriching
lives for themselves and for others.

   Hmm, reading further, you may want to notify Harvard that a seminar
put on by a professor from the school is being inapropriately posted
to Usenet newsgroups:

   Interesting pic, apparently a self-portrait. I noticed among her
books are On Becoming an Artist: Ballantine Books, 2005, Mindfulness
and Health, in preparation, and Mindfulness at Work, in preparation. I
wonder if Ballantine would be interested in knowing about these
inapropriate posts.

   If you have free time and are in the area, you may want to picket
outside the conference (get proper permits from the City of
Cambridge). Print lots of copies of this spam with why it's
inapropriate and against Netiquette and hand them out to anyone
