Abstract
We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work, and play―and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are.

His aunt Norma provides a home, and his best friend, Robbie, is attentive, but Mike remains deeply depressed. A project researching and writing the 50-year history of Carlton High School helps engage Mike, until eighth-grader Sarah is assigned to help him. Sarah reminds Mike of his little sister, and he works hard to drive her away. But her curiosity, frankness, and indefatigable good humor gradually nudge Mike out of his self-pity, until the day she disappears.

A story about a lonely little bird who looks for a mother. Choco believes that physical similarity is a prerequisite for family relationships. He asks a series of animals who bear even the slightest resemblance to him if they might be his mother, but all turn him away. Discouraged by their rejection, Choco is pleasantly surprised when Mrs. Bear takes an interest in him, plays with and cuddles him, and ultimately offers him a home. The presence of other "adoptees" is made obvious as a young alligator, hippopotamus, and pig welcome Choco into his new family.

"Scripting" provides young people with opportunities to practice social skills through a script approach. Students assume the characters in each script as they dramatize situations presented.
Two scripts, at least one to two pages in length, are provided for each of 53 social communication skills. The first script demonstrates the skill being used appropriately. The second script demonstrates inappropriate use of the skill. Students identify who said or did something that was not socially appropriate, then recast the script to correct the problem.
