JLW is a network of more than 2,300 highly trained female volunteers dedicated to improving the community through effective action and leadership. The network develops qualified civic leaders who are prepared to address the ever-evolving needs of our Washington, DC, community through volunteer service, meaningful programs and initiatives, and innovative solutions.

JLW invests in adult, child, and cultural literacy initiatives in the greater Washington, DC, area through hands-on volunteering, grant programs, and fundraising efforts that support the important work of our more than 20 community partners.

The Mindful Day is designed for busy professionals looking to integrate mindfulness into their daily lives, this step-by-step guide draws on contemplative practice, modern neuroscience, and leading psychology to bring peace and focus to the home, in the workplace, and beyond.

In the book, Founder of PurposeBlue and noted mindfulness expert, international teacher and business leader Laurie J. Cameron – a veteran of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, a Senior Fellow at the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being at George Mason, and 20-year mindfulness meditation practitioner- shows how to seamlessly weave mindfulness and compassion practices into your life. Timeless teachings, compelling science and straightforward exercises designed for busy schedules — from waking up to joy, the morning commute, to back-to-back meetings and evening dinners – show how mindfulness practice can help you navigate life’s complexity with mastery, clarity and ease. Cameron’s practical wisdom and concrete how-to steps will help you make the most of the present moment, creating a roadmap for inner peace – and a life of deeper purpose and joy.
