Lions Roar : November 2011
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2011 15 The next President/CEO of the Mind & Life Institute (currently located in Boulder, Colorado, www.mindandlife. org) will enjoy a remarkable opportunity for leadership, learning, and international social impact. For the past 25 years, MLI has been at the forefront of an international movement, as a catalyst in the promotion of the rigorous scientific study of contemplative practices, bringing together modern and ancient paradigms for understanding and enhancing human behavior. Sponsoring and publishing dialogues with H.H. the Dalai Lama; convening scientists, contemplatives, and scholars in the humanities to build cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural bridges; promoting the development of research centers in major universities; advancing knowledge while pragmatically exploring the applications and dissemination of knowledge to achieve social change–is all the foundation today for MLI’s ambitious work of the future. MLI seeks in its next chief executive an effective institution-builder who embodies the values of mindfulness and compassion, and who has the leadership skills to carry on MLI’s remarkable work. Requests for a detailed position description should be addressed in confidence to Robert M. Fisher, Ph.D., Rusher Loscavio Executive Search, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your authors, editors, and readers may enjoy the new website called “The Collaborative Photo-Haiku Project.” It is an interac- tive site created by Tif Holmes, a photographer, flutist, writer, Buddhist, and former soldier. Her photographs are, I believe, a moving example of bringing one’s spiritual practice into one’s art. Thank you so much for your magazine, your blog, and your continued efforts. Angela Mariani Lubbock, Texas POSER Andrea Miller’s brief review of Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses (May 2011) surprised and disappointed me. Miller began her review by stating the clichéd and dated assumption that partici- pants in a yoga class would all be thin, gorgeous ex-dancers. She then counters this by describing Poser as a real woman’s story (the emphasis on “real” being Miller’s), implying that the aforemen- tioned thin and gorgeous dancers are somehow not real women. Yes, I get it: our media and culture emphasizes and exalts certain body types almost obsessively, but is it right to dismiss people as not being “real” simply because they are thin and attractive? If I had read this in another magazine I would not have questioned it, but Shambhala Sun should know better. A magazine dedi- cated to mindfulness and compassion should not dismiss anyone as not “real” based on his or her body type, whether that body type is large and ungainly, slender and appealing, or anywhere in between. No matter what the body type, we are all real. Chuck Augello Randolph, New Jersey Check it out—Dalai Lama tickets. Who wants to get enlightened? Dalai Lama tickets, right here...
