Growing Mindfulness

by on 14 July 2013

Mindfulness, and the meditation that cultivates it, is a growing phenomenon in North America and elsewhere due its potential to improve one’s well-being and capabilities. It’s not new in the world - Buddhists have been practicing it for 2500 years. And it’s not necessarily Buddhist - after all, it’s a basic human capacity. But it does play a central role in the Buddhist methods of mental development and purification. And Buddhism has helped to spread its growth in the West. Another major force in the growing practice of mindfulness has been the work of Jon Kabatt-Zinn.
