Sample text

How do you let go of a separate sense of self, limited by fear, to experience an expansive “field” of being? The answer is you begin where you are. You’re the only one who can plant the seed of mindful self-esteem. By starting where you are, you can look inside to your unfolding process. You can get your judgmental thoughts out of the way, get into the present moment, and find that the person you’ve been looking for has been there all along. Waking up and loving yourself and others with intention is tending the seeds for mindful self-esteem!

Many of the teachings and practices in this book have also been inspired by influential teachers of the mindfulness community, including Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Sylvia Boorstein, Phillip Moffitt, Tara Brach, and Gil Fronsdal. Additional influences include Daniel Siegel, Rick Hanson, Saki Santorelli, and Ronald Siegel. The perspectives of world-renowned masters, including Vietnamese Buddhist monk and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, American Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, bring a sense of poetry and the ineffable, as well as the clearest expressions of the heart of mindfulness teachings.

We strive to lock in a permanent stamp of approval. But when we deny certain parts of ourselves, it means we’re not 100 percent available to ourselves or those we care about. When we constantly defend against failure and disapproval, it’s as if we’re carrying a heavy protective shell, unable to move about freely and do many things that are important to us in life. When you learn to embrace all parts of yourself—accept yourself unconditionally—your inherent worth comes to the surface. You’re open and, unburdened by your heavy defenses, you’re able to truly be there for yourself and others.
