just for anyone interested about this new campaign in the UK


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

It's a great website.

I'm about to start teaching Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at work. Wish me luck.

You're right. It's more helpful than depending on 'luck'.

I know I done a little research onto them while studying CBT, a year ago, looked quite interesting, and formulated well for the audience, but not remarkably different from Buddhism, in some ways.

have you seen the 3-s schema(?) stuff?
done by yale university quite hard to find the web site but http://info.med.yale.edu/psych/3s/index.html
quite interesting, stuff there

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
