Do you have a mindfulness practice?


Mindfulness practice seems to be gaining momentum in the United States, and is widely endorsed by spiritual leaders and prominent doctors as a way to a better, calmer, healthier life. According to Jon Kabat-Zinn , "mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally." What role, if any, does mindfulness play in your life? Jon Kabat-Zinn is Professor of Medicine and creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

    Sounds very nice. A strong visualization with lots of sensory cues.

    I think everybody has past issues that prevent them from functioning in the present. Thank you for sharing.

    Also, if one is mindful, one can pay attention much more deeply to others. Thank you, Mike!

    I think a mindfulness practice does not eliminate worry, but simply give someone a less harmful relationship to it. Thank you, A_k
