Global corporations, advertisers and social media networks are constantly engaged in the relentless harvesting and monetising of our attention. It’s become the biggest commodity of our times, and it pays. Meanwhile, “Attention Deficit” is being increasingly diagnosed amongst children and adults. We all seem to be ever more distracted. What to do? Simone Weil says that “attention, taken to its highest degree, is the same thing as prayer”. But to what should we be paying attention?

 

Edmund is a meditator and an integrative child psychotherapist who works with the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and with adults and children in private practice.

 

Jim is an oblate of WCCM and a writer who worked for over thirty years in the mental health field with organisations such as Mind, the BBC and the Open University.
