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.
