Buddhist Boot Camp (video)

"Faithfully Religionless" - Timber Hawkeye (TEDxHonolulu 2012)

Buddhism is all about training the mind/heart.
Boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation with our short attention span. The chapters in this small book can be read in any order. And they are short and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques anyone can relate to.
It is very possible (and perfectly okay) for Catholics, Muslims, or Jews, for example, to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. 
As the Dalai Lama says, "Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are.”
There is absolutely no reason to argue over which religion came "first" or whose philosophy is "better." The important thing is to be kind, understanding, peaceful, and compassionate, which is actually fundamental to all religions and schools of thought. More
