The Anxious Lawyer: An 8-Week Guide to a Joyful and Satisfying Law Practice Through Mindfulness and Meditation
Lawyers may be reluctant to mediate because it seems contrary to a culture that emphasizes logic and reason. However, meditation and mindfulness are also training tools for the mind. While it is critical for lawyers to "think", it is also important to relax your mind through meditation, allowing creative insights to surface. This book sets out an eight-weeks program with detailed assignments and introduces their readers to a variety of meditation practices, including following the breath, mindfulness meditation, loving-kindness, heartfulness and gratitude meditation, and more. As the authors are practicing lawyers themselves, their experiences and advice are highly relatable.
