What is Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness practice means...

“...that we commit fully in each moment to be present.”

— Jon Kabat-Zinn - Professor of Medicine Emeritus, Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School

"Mindfulness asks us...

“...to simply see, to open to ourselves and, in so doing, to open to the world, learning to be with whatever presents itself.”

— Saki Santarelli - Director, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Clinic
