Abstract
Bayan Azizi was just an average nine-year-old boy playing street hockey with friends and teasing his younger brother and sister when the unthinkable happened. A series of symptoms - a droopy eyelid, a slight speech impediment, some motor difficulties - took him to Children's Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia where a CT scan revealed a tumour in his brain stem. The tumour was not cancerous but was located in a place that made complete removal impossible and was intricately connected to the fundamental functions of life such as breathing, heart-rate, and swallowing and this made complete removal impossible. Over the next few years Bayan faced the possibility of death, endured three brain surgeries, maximum radiation, and chemotherapy. In his compelling yet humorous autobiography told through the lens of childhood, Bayan shares his life story from early childhood to present times, revealing his grit, his down-to-earth acceptance, and his determination to live a full life.

Abstract
Jon Kabat-Zinn is regarded as "one of the finest teachers of mindfulness you'll ever encounter" (Jack Kornfield). He has been teaching the tangible benefits of meditation in the mainstream for decades. Today, millions of people around the world have taken up a formal mindfulness meditation practice as part of their everyday lives. But what is meditation anyway? And why might it be worth trying? Or nurturing further if you already have practice?
Meditation Is Not What You Think answers those questions. Originally published in 2005 as part of a larger book entitled Coming to Our Senses, it has been updated with a new foreword by the author and is even more relevant today. If you're curious as to why meditation is not for the "faint-hearted," how taking some time each day to drop into awareness can actually be a radical act of love, and why paying attention is so supremely important, consider this book an invitation to learn more--from one of the pioneers of the worldwide mindfulness movement.

As a result, his body hasn?t grown bigger and stronger as he?s gotten older―it?s gotten smaller and weaker instead. This hasn?t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys (like eating pizza and playing sports and video games) with the people he loves, but it does mean that he routinely relies on his friends and family for help with everything from brushing his teeth to rolling over in bed.
