9781626254893: The Mindful Twenty-Something: Life Skills to Handle Stress...and Everything Else

“A 21st century book, grounded in ancient ways of practice.”
—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

In The Mindful Twenty-Something, the cofounder of the extremely popular Koru Mindfulness program developed at Duke University presents a unique, evidence-based approach to help you make important life decisions with clarity and confidence.


As a twenty-something, you may feel like you are being pulled in dozen different directions. With the daily tumult, busyness, and major life changes you experience as a young adult, you may also be particularly vulnerable to stress and its negative effects. Emerging adulthood, which occurs between the ages of 18 and 29, is a developmental stage of life when you’re faced with important decisions about school, relationships, sex, your career, and more. With so much going on, you need a guide to help you navigate with less stress and more ease.

The Koru Mindfulness program, developed at Duke University and already in use on numerous college campuses—including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, MIT, Dartmouth, and several others—and in treatment centers across the country, is the only evidence-based mindfulness training program for young adults that has been empirically proven to have significant benefits for sleep, perceived stress, and self-compassion. Now, with The Mindful Twenty-Something, this popular program is accessible to all young adults struggling with stress.

With Koru Mindfulness and the practical tools you’ll learn from this acceptance-based, proven-effective approach, you’ll be able to cultivate the compassion and mindfulness skills you need to manage life’s challenges from a calm, balanced center, regardless of what comes your way.

About the Author:

Holly B. Rogers, MD, is a psychiatrist and mindfulness teacher at Duke University’s student counseling center. Along with Margaret Maytan, MD, she developed Koru Mindfulness, the only evidence-based mindfulness training program designed specifically for college-age adults. Coauthor of Mindfulness for the Next Generation, Rogers is one of the leading experts on teaching mindfulness to young adults.

Review:

“Given the current state of higher education today, to call The Mindful Twenty-Something timely is an understatement. The conversational tone offers an approachable presentation of mindfulness appropriate for many of the complexities that modern undergraduate and graduate students face. The simple practices outlined in this book ensure both the accessibility and applicability of mindfulness and will undoubtedly be a valuable resource not only for students but those working with contemplation in higher education.”
—Jason Jones, PhD, Contemplative Sciences Center, University of Virginia


“Based in ancient contemplative wisdom, modern science, and Holly Rogers’ extensive experience working with college students and young adults, this book is an excellent resource for a person of ‘any-something’ age who wishes to begin or learn more about practicing mindfulness.”
Jeff Brantley, MD, assistant consulting professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical Center; founding faculty member of Duke Integrative Medicine, and founder and director of its Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program; and author of Calming Your Angry Mind

“Mystified by meditation? Engaging, accessible, and down to earth, The Mindful Twenty-Something has everything you need to start meditating and more.”
Sumi Loundon Kim, Buddhist chaplain at Duke University


“Easy to read and immensely practical, The Mindful Twenty-Something is a 21st century book, grounded in ancient ways of practice. In it, Holly Rogers’ professional experience and her love of mindful practice come together in a way that will be of great benefit to many.”
Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness


“In The Mindful Twenty-Something, Holly invites young people to explore mindfulness and meditation with a curious and open mind. With warmth and a clear, direct tone, she speaks candidly about the precious and fleeting nature of our lives, advocating that mindfulness and meditation are the path to fully engaging with the present moment. Allowing for skepticism and doubt, this book helps bridge the gap between understanding mindfulness and developing a regular meditation practice.”
—Jeanne Mahon, MEd, director of the Center for Wellness at Harvard University


“Having just shepherded two daughters through their twenties, I can say with confidence that it is not an easy time these days, and the statistics on mental health challenges for that age group bear that out. Holly Rogers not only knows plenty of people trying to start out their lives during that difficult stage, but she cares deeply about what they need. In this book, she offers insights and practical tools that will shape the present and the future of many young people.”
—Barry Boyce, editor in chief at Mindful magazine and mindful.org

“Holly Rogers has written a unique introduction to becoming mindful, deeply grounded in her own experience. She has both practiced herself for years and taught students at Duke, and the book reflects both. Wise, but not obscure. Practical, but lighthearted and inspiring.”
—Mirabai Bush, meditation and mindfulness teacher, cofounder and senior fellow of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, and coauthor of Contemplative Practices in Higher Education
