    Book: You Were Not Born To Suffer: Overcome Fear, Insecurity and Depression and Love Yourself Back to Happiness, Confidence and Peace by Blake D. Bauer

    Eckhart Tolle, and his book, The Power of Now
    Effect on Emotions
    It has helped me have a healthy relationship to my emotions in a way that I never could, and for me, mindfulness helped me build the psychological strength and container to accept and process my emotions without judgment or overwhelm.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    I would say your breathing is the number one key to mindfulness to accessing your
    capacity to create the life you want, to love wholeheartedly. It is the most important thing because it literally is your life and it's how you grow your life, heal your life, expand your life, because as soon as you don't breathe, you're gone.

    Bullying Story
    I was bullied by my older brother and by my parents. My biological father was physically abusive to me when I was young.
    I believe on the healing journey, we need to get our thinking to a place where we learn how to take responsibility for everything because when, in your psyche, you get to a place where you take responsibility for anything and everything, then there is no part of your psyche that can be a victim anymore.

    Book: Ask: The Bridge From Your Dreams To Your Destiny by Mark Victor Hansen and Crystal Dwyer Hansen 
    Most Influential Person
    Mark says Crystal is the most influential person in his life.
    Effect on Emotions
    Crystal says mindfulness has affected her emotions tremendously. It helps me realize that whatever is going on outside of me that's causing me to feel these things can always be questioned and it's not necessarily the truth.
    If I go inside and be still with myself, then I can find the truth.  
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Mark's thoughts on breathing: Breathing is everything because breathing brings you back to center.
    I wrote a forward to a book called Three Deep Breaths, by Thomas Crum. Three breaths are what you need to take before you go into meditation, I believe. It relaxes you, it centers you, and you get in touch with your soul, the essence of who you are, the god in you, that's what I believe.

    Bullying Story
    When I was in 8th grade I got a ride to school with the minister in this purple car. It was embarrassing to go to eighth grade in a purple car. We arrived at school and I had grown so tall, so fast. I was the tallest kid in class at 6′ 4″ and 13 years old. I was gangly and uncoordinated. I wrote to the radio station, WLS in Chicago. Wrote to the Great Pumpkin, who would answer every kid's question. My question to him was, Dear Great Pumpkin, my name is Mark Victor Hansen, I go to Webster Junior High School, I'm in Eighth grade, I'm 6′ 4″ and too tall for my class and I'm uncoordinated. So we're in the car with 6 kids and this question comes over the radio. He says, I'm going to tell you what to do today, Mark. “Cut off your head and carry it to school in a paper bag.” Every kid kept asking me, where's my bag.

    Bullying Story
    The thing that comes to mind is living in the culture of how women are supposed to look. The culture is the bully.
    One never escapes it because it becomes us. It took me a lot of time of looking at myself with compassion.
    The brain is sneaky. It hides and it shows up in very sneaky ways.

    Book: The Art of Human Care by Dr. Hassan Tetteh
    Most Influential Person
    Victor Frankl, Author of Man's Search For Meaning
    Effect on Emotions
    I have been uncharacteristically called an atypical cardiac surgeon. In the operating room, everyone always says, how come he's so calm.
    That calmness is because of mindfulness. Just taking time, having peace and presence of mind. That's how mindfulness has impacted me. It's given me a great amount of equanimity at times of duress.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Mindfulness is very central and it's foundational to keeping myself centered and I also believe it helps to regulate my heart rate.
    I wear a sensor watch so I'm always proud of myself when my resting heart-rate is in the 40's. Sometimes I can get it down to 41 or 42.
    I'm also a runner so I should qualify that. I don't take any beta blockers. It's my way of saying to myself, I'm doing well.

    Bullying Story
    I got my son to learn how to meditate at a young age so he could use mindfulness in his life.
    He embraced mindfulness and found a lot of value from it. I remind him now that he's in the stress of high school with a rigorous curriculum that he should use it as a way to bring himself back to present. It will give him the calm and the space to look at the world and understand how you fit into life holistically.
    Mindfulness gives me the opportunity to have gratitude and that has been very helpful.

    Bullying Story
    Because I was different, because I looked different and because I had eleven fingers, I was sometimes bullied as a child. But that's not where I felt the most damage. I believe it's because I created a story about the bullying. I created a story that I was different and that I was unloveable.
    We know that through the Law of Attraction, what we hold is mirrored back to us. It's like a magnet. So if I feel different, I'm going to bring all those experiences into my life.
    The day before I married my husband, of course, because I felt different, I attracted a man who was totally different from me. The night before our wedding, a relative of his said, your mother-in-law is really upset because you're Catholic, your father-in-law is really upset because you're Asian.
    That really hurt me. So I refused to ever spend time with my husband's relative who said that.

    Lama Surya Das, Author of Awakening the Buddha Within
    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness is paying attention to my feelings, befriending myself. Befriending yourself, that's the purpose of mindfulness. It is not Zen, floating away on a cloud of ice-cream. The purpose of mindfulness is to befriend what's happening in you so you can do something about it.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    The breath is a paradigm for everything. When the sun rises in the east, it's heat causes the earth to exhale. That exhale is called transpiration. It releases it's breath, which then begins the cycles of life.
    You can think about breath in terms of, we're living and dying in every moment. That means we're starting over in every moment. There is death and rebirth in every moment. And that's what the breath signifies to me.
