What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness has many definitions but the one I find most aspirational  is from Jon Kabat-Zinn, one of the mindfulness pioneers who introduced these important practices to the medical field:

” Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way;

on purpose,

in the present moment,

and non-judgmentally.”

–Jon Kabat-Zinn
