The French art of not giving a sh*t by Fabrice Midal( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in French and English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stop stressing. Try yoga. Be calm. Be fulfilled-- and that's an order! You've been bossing yourself around too long. Where has it gotten you? Maybe it's time you take a page from the French and give yourself a break. Allow yourself to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate-- to stop giving a shit, and just simply be."-- Page [4] of cover
Chögyam Trungpa : his life and vision by Fabrice Midal( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Master of meditation, artist, poet, social visionary - Chogyam Trungpa was all these and more. Fabrice Midal, by steering his way between conventional Western biography and traditional Tibetan hagiography, has succeeded in painting a detailed portrait of this unconventional Tibetan lama, who is regarded as one of the most influential forces in spreading Buddhism in the West." "From his first years of teaching in Britain and the United States, Trungpa began making friends with his students in a completely free style, with few Buddhist references, adapting his teaching to the language and understanding of young Westerners. Yet his radical emphasis was on the traditional source of Buddhism: the root practice of sitting meditation." "His work was unique in its emphasis on a secular rather than religious approach to spirituality. Among the practices that he encouraged his students to undertake were calligraphy, flower arranging, Japanese archery, tea ceremony, dance, theater, health care, psychotherapy, poetry, elocution, and translation. His establishment of centers, communities, and innovative educational institutions was also part of the flowering of a new culture of Buddhism in the West. He founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado; Shambhala Training; and Vajradhatu, an international association of meditation centers (now called Shambhala International)." "This biography presents a wealth of anecdotes from Trungpa's life, excerpts from unpublished talks, reminiscences by those closest to him, and facts from the archive that preserves his legacy - all making the book a treasure chest of insights not found in any other book published so far."--BOOK JACKET
Recalling Chögyam Trungpa( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In wide-ranging essays and interviews, contributors from the fields of Buddhist practice and scholarship, philosophy, the arts, and literature examine the work of a modern genius-the Tibetan Buddhist meditation master ChOgyam Trungpa Rinpoche (1939-1987). A pioneer in introducing Buddhism to the West, Trungpa Rinpoche had a distinct knack for breaking down the cultural, historical, and ideological barriers that make any such transmission so difficult today. His skill at communicating in a living language to Western students, while remaining faithful to the traditional origins of Buddhism, was paired with an understanding of the modern world of unusual relevance. As a result, his activities in a wide range of areas-including psychology, education, theater, poetry, visual arts, translation, publishing, interreligious dialogue, the creation of a path of spiritual warriorship, and the founding of the first Buddhist university in North America-offer penetrating insights into the meaning of Buddhism for our world and our culture. This anthology is a testimony to the continuing influence of his unique qualities and work as a revitalizing force in spheres both spiritual and secular
The French art of not giving a sh*t : cut the crap and live your life by Fabrice Midal( Recording )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Be calm. Stop stressing. Embrace the universe. Try yoga. Be fulfilled. And that's an order! People are overwhelmed with these sorts of commands, and often torture themselves to 'try harder,' yet somehow never feel they've done quite enough. It's about time people stop pushing themselves to do what they think they're supposed to do, and instead simply allow themselves to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate, to stop giving a shit, and just be. Fabrice Midal explains why the key to true mindfulness is freeing oneself from social and often self-imposed stresses, and highlights how people can embrace life more fully by giving themselves a break
La méditation by Fabrice Midal( Book )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La méditation fait, depuis quelques années, une entrée remarquée en Occident. Son succès grandissant interroge. Faut-il n'y voir qu'une réponse au stress généré par nos sociétés contemporaines ? En revenant aux sources de cette pratique. en particulier aux textes du Bouddha, des moines du nord de la Thaïlande. des maîtres chinois ou japonais ou encore aux écrits des, grandes universités monastiques du Tibet. Fabrice Midal nous invite à comprendre la richesse de la pratique méditative. Il explore aussi ses liens avec les différentes spiritualités. Il interroge surtout l'intérêt que lui portent la psychologie, la philosophie, les arts ou encore les neurosciences. Il montre enfin en quoi, parce qu'elle incarne une autre entente de l'être humain, la méditation est une réponse à la crise des temps modernes. -- 4ème de couverture
