Synopsis: We’ve come to believe that living in a city is the very opposite of living a mindful life. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Enriching, inventive, ever-evolving, and social, cities are rich with ingredients for sparkling spiritual health. In this beautifully illustrated little book, Mindful Thoughts for City Dwellers leads the reader on a joyful journey through the city. From noticing urban nature to embracing noise as sound, author Lucy Anna Scott shows us how to find a home for the head, and the heart, in the metropolis—humanity’s greatest invention.
My review: This works as a bit of a beginners guide to mindfulness really in that it has you noticing all the little things around you but set within the theme of city living. It also gives useful advice about joining in (or not – there’s a chapter on not) with local groups, crafting and so on. It doesn’t go too deep with any of the subjects which is why I think it would work for a beginner.
For me, as I’ve practised mindfulness for a while it was too simple although it does serve a as good reminder to stop sometimes and remember when you’re in deep with life. I would have liked a bit more on each subject. Beautiful illustrations
