WORK THAT MATTERS Create A Livelihood That Reflects Your Core Intention By Maia Duerr Parallax Press 2017; 238 pp., $18.95 (paper) Adamant that she would not end up in a job she hated, Maia Duerr gave careful thought to her career options. Finally—after considering her skills and interests—she decided that music therapy was the perfect career for her. Ten years later, how- ever, she had to admit that she was disillusioned and unhappy. Duerr was eventually able to shift into a fulfilling career, and now she helps others do the same. As she explains in Wo r k That Matters, there are six key steps to discovering how to make a living in a way that’s deeply satisfying: (1) Become inti- mate with your core intention, (2) Value your gifts and time, (3) Break through inertia and take action, (4) Make friends with uncertainty, (5) Think big and make the most of your resources, and (6) Build a circle of allies and ask for help. Wo r k That Matters is the contemplative, deeper version of What Color Is Your Parachute? REVIEWS THE MINDFULNESS IN PLAIN ENGLISH COLLECTION By Bhante Gunaratana Wisdom Publications 2017; 640 pp., $39.95 (cloth) After ordaining as a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka when he was twelve, Bhante Gunaratana eventually went on to become the founding abbot of the Bhavana Society, which preserves the Theravada forest meditation tradition within the context of Western culture.

This volume brings together the full texts of three beloved books: Mindfulness in Plain Eng- lish, which is a straightforward but thorough introduction to vipassana, or insight meditation; The Four Foundations of Mind- fulness in Plain English, which explores the Satipatthana Sutta, a teaching given by the Buddha on mindfulness of the body, feelings, mind, and dhamma; and Beyond Mindfulness in Plain English, which sheds light on concentration practices. Bhante Gunaratana’s teaching style is direct and compassionate. LION’S ROAR | MAY 2018 80
