"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing." JKZ.
Overview: What Is Mindfulness?
"Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally. It's about knowing what is on your mind."
—Jon Kabat-Zinn The roots of mindfulness come to us from Buddhism, where it remains an important part of the tradition. Yet mindfulness as a modern, Western practice is most often practiced outside of any formal spiritual contexts.
Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the first Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program in 1979 and is largely credited with introducing mindfulness to the West. Since then, substantial research has demonstrated that mindfulness really does improve our mental and physical health.
Today, the "Mindfulness Movement" is growing in popularity, with hospitals, schools, prisons, the military, and many workplaces using this life-changing practice. People from all walks of life are turning to mindfulness as a way to bring openheartedness and well-being to modern life.
