During the day many of us are moving so fast, sometimes physically, but almost always mentally. Appreciate – If you are fortunate enough to have the ability to walk, try and remember, it took you over a year to learn how to walk and these legs are often the unsung heroes that take you to and fro day in and day out. Ground – Bring your attention to the sensations of your feet and legs as the heel touches the ground, then the base of the foot, then the toes, and then they lift.
Come to Your Senses – Walk slightly slower and begin to open your awareness to all your senses one by one.
You can do this while walking to work, in the hallways, running errands, or walking from the car to the door on the way home. Imagine what the days, weeks and months ahead would be like if you practice mindfulness on-the-go a bit more often. Barry Boyce convenes a distinguished panel to discuss the health benefits of mindfulness—what it does, how to do it, why it works.
When we think of mindfulness or meditation, the words conjure images of a quiet, private time of tranquility and peace.
Because they’ve seen the evidence that mindfulness is profoundly healing, they’re taking it right into the middle of the American health care system, from prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, through cure, palliative care, and even health administration and medical training. Barry Boyce: What are some of the benefits of mindfulness—both the practice and the state of mind—for our health and healing? Jon Kabat-Zinn: To be in relationship to what you are going through, to hold it, and, in some sense, to befriend it—that is where the healing or transformative power of the practice of mindfulness lies.
Appreciating this kind of awareness can have virtually immediate effects on health and well-being. We say to our patients who come to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction that there’s more right with them than wrong with them, no matter what their diagnosis is.
Daniel Siegel: To help people be with their pain, or with knowledge of their metastasis, or of their mortality, it’s so valuable for them to discover a spaciousness of mind where they realize they’re part of a universal flow of things—people get ill, people do die, and they’re part of that big picture.
Susan Bauer-Wu: It’s so very important for people who have cancer or any other serious illness to be in tune with what they’re experiencing, rather than shut off from it, which can so often be the case. Another benefit of mindfulness is having less emotional reactivity and more stability of mind.
Daniel Siegel: In neuroscience, we do talk about a momentary set of brain firing patterns that we would call a brain state. For example, if I’m really angry, and I have a gun in my hand, I’m aware that the gun is in my hand. As the Buddhist teacher Joan Halifax pointed out in a recent retreat I took part in, there is a difference between being aware and being aware with wisdom. Mindfulness practice can uncover dark and difficult thoughts, which people can find quite shocking. Daniel Siegel: Much of what happens in the mind is not within consciousness, yet these non-conscious processes have an impact on our health.
So an exploratory process like mindfulness that brings those fearful negative thoughts to awareness can be very beneficial. Jon Kabat-Zinn: We often relate to our thoughts, whether they’re intensely negative or not, as a reliable statement of the truth. Depression, which is a major concern for patients, is to a very large degree a disease of disregulated thinking. Susan Bauer-Wu: It’s important to emphasize that noticing negative thoughts through mindfulness is not merely a passive process.
In terms of chronic illnesses—ranging from cancer to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disease—all of them have an inflammatory component, and inflammation and stress are absolutely associated.
In terms of early diagnosis, many people are not really in tune with their bodies, so they don’t notice when something’s wrong. Daniel Siegel: In addition to what it can do for the body, the mindful way of being supports a healthy mind and more empathic relationships. Susan Bauer-Wu: In the early phase, after someone is diagnosed with serious disease, there is an intense period of uncertainty. During the treatment phase of cancer of radiation, chemotherapy, or surgery, there is a whole host of physical symptoms ranging from pain to nausea to itching to diarrhea. Jon Kabat-Zinn: One of the reasons our health care system is breaking down is that we need more participation from the people who are suffering. This speaks to an entirely different way of practicing medicine that recruits the internal resources of the patient in the treatment process.
Daniel Siegel: It’s very easy to be in denial about a change in your body, whether it’s a change in intestinal functioning, a lump in the breast, or irregularity in breathing, all of which might indicate the onset of disease. One of the elements of research on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction that I find most impressive is the work that Richie Davidson and Jon have done showing that even after one eight-week MBSR course, a “left-shift” has been noted, in which the left frontal activity of the brain is enhanced.
Also imbedded within the mindful way of being is the sensory mechanism we call “interoception”—being aware of your internal bodily state. Jon Kabat-Zinn: We did a study on people with psoriasis, a skin disease that is an uncontrolled cell proliferation in the epidermis. Daniel Siegel: There are indications that mindfulness practices can be very beneficial for doctors, nurses, and other kinds of caregivers.
When I was being trained as a physician, we weren’t taught about things like listening or empathy. It’s like the instruction on the airplane to put on your own oxygen mask first and then help others put theirs on. Jon Kabat-Zinn: Until very recently, physicians were not trained in how to be in relationship with another person who is suffering, who is frightened and doesn’t understand a lot of what’s going on. It’s also helpful for doctors to have the humbleness to know that they can’t immediately fix everything. If we recruited our patients as participants in fostering greater health and well-being, while coming to terms with whatever illness they may face with self-compassion and wisdom, it would cost the system a lot less money.
It would make an enormous difference if mindfulness were made available at the wide mouth of the funnel, so to speak, before people wind up with a serious condition which requires surgery or a long hospital stay.
We now have worthwhile research results to present to a scientifically hungry medical student population. As we train in these attitudes over and over, it begins to affect more than just our relationship with ourselves.
This is why I believe that mindfulness—taught and practised properly—is its own self-protection from misuse. The key, of course, is reminding ourselves and others that mindfulness is more than just neutral attention training. Mindfulness is the practice of self-observation without judgment with a focus on our minds and inner voices. As our lives have become filled with technology, the distractions we face increase exponentially.
Today many more companies are promoting mindful practices to improve the health and decision-making of their leaders.
Daniel Goleman, the father of emotional intelligence, describes the effect of mindfulness for focusing the mind's cognitive abilities.
The World Health Organization estimates that stress costs American businesses roughly $300 billion dollars per year. The key to effective leadership is the ability to integrate your head (IQ) with your heart (EQ). The best time to start a mindful practice is now, but don't take the word "practice" lightly.

Mindful practice is about silencing our minds with awareness and focusing on being fully present with what is happening. Mindfulness doesn’t stop the never-ending flow of mental chatter, nor does it stop the ebb and flow of our feelings. As we develop our mindful practice, we learn to recognise these unhelpful feelings for what they really are, just feelings. Mindfulness masters are emotionally stable because they no longer have an ego that needs validation. This is not a comprehensive list of the qualities of mindfulness masters but these are the most prominent.
Being mindful is the ongoing practice of pausing your mind chatter and focusing your attention on the present moment with awareness. The root cause of your problems is not what you are doing – it is what you are thinking! Life presents you with endless choices and opportunities if you care to step out and face your fears without limiting beliefs. I have been practising and coaching mindfulness for six years now and have witnessed the massive impact that it has made on people’s work and life. This weekly group is starting on Saturday 21st February at 10am sharp at the Grafton Community & Function Centre, 59 Duke Street Grafton. Mindfulness has become an increasingly popular topic among business leaders, with several key executives speaking publicly in recent months about how it helps them improve the bottom line.
But Thay, as the Zen master is known to his hundreds of thousands of followers around the world, points out that if executives are in the practice for selfish reasons, then they are experiencing a mere pale shadow of mindfulness.
Perhaps the most interesting intersection in the business world is between mindfulness and technology, as they appear to pull in opposite directions. Mindfulness has been linked for decades to the Californian lifestyle, where many technology companies are based.
Thay’s core message to the tech leaders he met was to use their global influence to focus on how they can contribute to making the world a better place, rather than on making as much money as possible. Thay speaks of the sharp contrast between the normal frenetic pace of work at the technology giant and the sense of peace that came from sitting in silence during his day of mindfulness on the Googleplex campus. When they create electronic devices, they can reflect on whether that new product will take people away from themselves, their family and nature,” he says. Mindfulness is the constant focus and re-focusing — moment to moment to moment, on the object of our awareness. The process can be misleading, as it is not the silencing of our thoughts that opens the door to engagement. As I’m writing this text (Feb 2014) Mindfulness is reaching a tipping point in western society, appearing exclusively on the cover of TIME magazine, with the title of “The Mindful Revolution”. Before we talk about why this (r)evolution is happening, let us define what we mean by mindfulness. A simple way to describe it, using the words of Richard Boyatzis, from Case Western Reserve University, is to “be awake, aware and attentive”.
For many years there was a strong belief that the brain was static and didn’t change during the course of life.
Science has shown that mindfulness allows the training and experience to change the brain, for instance, in areas that regulate attention, executive thinking and emotional regulation, but also can produce epigenetic changes! These are just some examples of what is happening in the scientific arena, where we can currently find more than 3,000 scientific studies with peer-review, and they keep growing at an exponential rate. Helping people to “rescue” their health and wellbeing is another reason why mindfulness is growing in importance. But the good news is that mindfulness is not only applied to address clinical cases but can also be applied to anyone that would like to simply nurture a general sense of wellbeing and happiness, since that is a positive “side effect” that emerges when using these types of practices. Mindfulness-based approaches started to be applied in organizations to help people in the workplace deal with stress and cultivate their health and wellbeing.
One of the main people “responsible” for this movement is Chade-Meng Tan, an engineer at Google who created a program called “Search Inside Yourself” (SIY). Imagine people all over the world being more aware, feeling more secure, more connected with themselves and with others and making decisions not only thinking about their own personal benefit but also about the benefit of all beings.
I envision a near future where most organizations (corporations, hospitals, schools, etc.) will have meditation rooms, invest in mindfulness and compassion training for their people and where everyone can be at peace with themselves and with others.
My dream is to be part of this future, by spreading the word and helping people to flourish into their highest human potential all over the world. The second aspect of mindfulness is the practise of remaining in the present moment at all times. The Healing Power of Mindful Parenting by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Myla Kabat-ZinnMost parents would agree that parenting is one of the most stressful occupations on the planet, for which there is very little training. Mindfulness is paying attention purposefully and without judgment to the present moment; mindful parenting is about bringing that quality of awareness to relationships with children of all ages.
Parents, step-parents, parent educators, and therapists will find this video filled with healing principles and highly practical tools.
We reserve the right to cancel orders or terminate service if we suspect any un-authorized usage. This exceeds the number of videos you are allowed because you have selected a set or series. Throughout the video there is a live studio audience of parents who ask relevant questions that real parents have. There are several opportunities for viewers to practice what the Kabat-Zinns are teaching, including pauses on the video and guided mindfulness instruction. While prominent experts on the topic, both Jon and Myla come across as humble and grounded, and are gifted at making mindfulness both incredibly accessible and profoundly inspiring. Jon and Myla dispel many common myths about both mindfulness and parenting, leaving viewers with a sense of competence and confidence as well as a clear understanding of areas for growth. Mindfulness is the art of paying attention, non-judgmentally, to whatever arises in the present moment.
To learn mindfulness, it is not necessary to take on any new beliefs, adopt a new world view, or accept a new philosophy or religion; mindfulness can be integrated into your daily life exactly as it is. Sounds True is happy to bring you the highest quality resources in the area of mindfulness, including easy-to-learn teachings, tools, and simple exercises that you can start using today, enjoying the profound gifts that the practice of mindfulness has to offer.
Tara Brach has been practicing and teaching meditation since 1975, as well as leading Buddhist meditation retreats at centers throughout North America. Why are we in the midst of a “Mindfulness Revolution?” It’s because neuroscientists have found conclusive evidence that traditional mindfulness meditation practices can have a powerful, positive effect on the biology of the human brain.

You can actually say to yourself, “heel, foot, toes, lift.” This is a way to connect to the action of walking in the present moment. For example, take a few steps and during an in breath say to yourself, “breathing in, I have arrived, breathing out, I am home” or “breathing in, I calm my body, breathing out, I relax.” Or make up your own sayings. When we think of hospitals and doctors’ offices, we think of the anxiety, pain, and chaos we might experience there, and presume that mindfulness doesn’t have a place in health care. When we can actually be where we are, not trying to find another state of mind, we discover deep internal resources we can make use of. As crazy as it sounds, it’s possible to befriend your pain or your fear—rather than feeling that you can’t get anywhere until this thing that bothers you is cut out or walled off or shut down. One of the most important benefits of mindfulness is attentiveness to what is happening in your body, your mind, and your environment—being present for what’s happening to you, with you, and around you at a particular moment in time. Not overreacting emotionally brings greater mental clarity, which is healthy in and of itself. That gives people much more latitude in what they’re actually experiencing, because it’s not about trying to be in a special state, and if you’re not in that state, then you’re doing something wrong. If we’re talking about transforming health care or transforming any individual’s relationship to their own body—especially if they’re in pain or suffering with cancer or another life-threatening illness—the idea that mindfulness is a particular mind state can be misleading. When you look at the neuroscience, being aware with wisdom likely involves a whole set of what we would call the middle structures of the prefrontal area.
Bringing these negative thoughts, such as fear, hostility, betrayal, or sadness, to awareness is part of basic health, because those thoughts—what in my field are called unintegrated neural processes—are basically like black holes.
We need to support people in that journey, because bringing more of what’s going on in the mind to awareness can be a very helpful development in a person’s life. There’s a lot of evidence that mindfulness can actually help you develop a whole different relationship with the stream of negative thoughts called depressive rumination.
Acute illness, such as an upper respiratory infection or gastrointestinal irritability, is often exacerbated or triggered by stress. We’re showing through studies that mindfulness practices have an impact on inflammatory processes in the body. Their body might be alerting them to something that needs to be checked out, but they’re not really paying attention to their way of being and what’s happening in their body. Those three—body, mind, and relationship—are the three major dimensions of the human experience that an integrated health care ought to be concerned with. Of course, there is uncertainty throughout the whole trajectory from diagnosis through treatment and cure or palliative care, but at the beginning there are so many questions in people’s minds.
Body–mind awareness practices help people ride the waves of these symptoms, which are constantly in flux. In addition to awareness of your lifestyle and the state of your body and mind, as Susan and Dan were talking about, once you have been diagnosed it’s important to be able to negotiate with your doctor about treatment options.
Many people avoid going to the doctor even for a regular check-up for fear of what they might find out.


This electrical change in brain function is thought to reflect the cultivation of an “approach state,” in which we move toward, rather than away from, a challenging external situation or internal mental function such as a thought, feeling, or memory. An increased capacity for interoception correlates with activity in a part of the brain called the right insula, which is in the middle prefrontal area we discussed earlier. We demonstrated that the skin of people who meditate while they’re receiving ultraviolet light therapy clears four times faster than in people who were getting the ultraviolet light by itself.
A study by Krasner and Epstein showed that teaching primary care physicians mindfulness practices reduced burnout and maintained empathy. Even when you have empathic medical students at the start, by the time the socialization experience of medical school is done with, much of it has been wrung out of them. They are more sensitive to the subtleties of the whole person, not just the physical symptoms that the patient presents with at the time of the appointment.
The potential benefits for both the patients and the physicians of cultivating that kind of empathic presence and silence—and perhaps embodying silence as a way of being—is unbelievably important. You wouldn’t be throwing fixes that aren’t actually going to work at people who really don’t need them. Our hospitals and medical centers have the potential to become centers for integrative health care. From a scientific research standpoint today, there’s much more support for putting understanding of relationships and mind on an equal footing with understanding the workings of the body.
She is a researcher, clinician, and educator whose work focuses on the clinical application of meditation and its effects on health and quality of life in individuals living with serious illness, especially cancer. He is director of the Mindsight Institute and co-director of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center.
He is editor of, and a contributor in, The Mindfulness Revolution: Leading Psychologists, Scientists, Artists, and Meditation Teachers on the Power of Mindfulness in Daily Life (2011). There are a clear set of attitudes which underpin the practice, and compassion may be the most important. As long as we commit ourselves to an ongoing practice of noticing what’s happening with curiosity and friendliness, awareness and compassion tend to follow.
That’s why I think having clear definitions are important—if mindfulness loses its kindfulness, then we really are lost. He is author of Mindfulness: How To Live Well By Paying Attention (2015) and co-author of The Mindful Manifesto (2012). With it, our ability to focus has diminished, but our need to think clearly in order to make complex decisions has not. Google, under the tutelage of Chade-Meng Tan, trains 2,000 engineers in meditation each year.
By centering into myself, I can focus my attention on the important things, develop an inner sense of well-being, and gain clarity in making decisions. Research by Wisconsin's Richard Davidson demonstrated direct correlation between mindfulness and changes in the brain - away from anger and anxiety and toward a sense of calm and well-being.
Aetna, the nation's third largest health insurer, partnered with Duke University to study meditation and yoga. Over the past thirty years, we've experienced an 18-23% increase of self-reported stress for men and women, respectively. As Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh taught me years ago, "The longest journey you will ever take is the eighteen inches from your head to your heart." Our hearts are where essential leadership qualities like passion, compassion and courage reside. Professor Gilbert has spent the past twenty years developing a new therapy called Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) which has an gained international following. You may remember the first Mindfulness Day in 2014 when I created a facebook event and invited Australians with mental suffering.
Having a mindful practice enables us to develop more awareness of our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes we avoid practising mindfulness because we feel that something is going on deep down inside. We learn that feelings aren’t facts and we make room for them or simply choose to let them go. They genuinely care about other people, regardless of whether people care about them in return. They are able to see the world with clarity, without attachment to preconceived ideas about people, places and things.
They have learned intuitive ways of connecting with people and skillful ways of connecting with source energy within. They have developed their own mindful practice and are very skilful in maintaining presence and awareness in all their relationships. Having awakened to the point of understanding the nature of suffering, they are committed to helping other people find freedom from suffering. They don’t get angry because they are understanding and compassionate toward those who have not yet fully awakened. They know that the mind, body and spirit must be in harmony in order to maintain balance and vitality. The purpose for highlighting these qualities is to give us a compass to guide us on our mindful journey… a vision of the path that lies ahead.
Minds produce thoughts, it’s what they’re built for, and your mind keeps on producing them even if you do happen to be meditating. It is true that mindfulness has it’s roots in the age of Buddha but no-one owns mindfulness. Research into the effects of mindfulness and its impact on the mind and body are impressive. Anytime you find yourself in a stressful situation or under pressure, let Be Mindful be the trigger to take you to a place of peaceful presence or of heightened awareness. Use Be Mindful as a magical trigger to silence your mind to enhance creativity and innovation. They are more peaceful, happier, healthier, empathic, intuitive and excited about their lives. That is because the practice will fundamentally change their perspective on life as it naturally opens hearts to greater compassion and develops the desire to end the suffering of others. The practice is all about slowing down and emptying the mind, while the digital revolution is speeding up our lives and filling our heads with vast quantities of information. So it is no great surprise that Thay, who has sold more than 2 million books in the US, was invited to Silicon Valley by Google and was also asked to lead a private day of mindfulness for CEOs of 15 of the world’s most powerful technology companies. He and a group of monastics spent a day at Google’s headquarters, spending time with the senior management as well as leading around 700 employees through mindfulness discussions and sitting and walking meditation.
If listening, we focus on listening; if putting on shoes, we focus on putting on our shoes. As science has taught us, all objects in the universe are bundles of energy vibrating at varying frequencies. Nothing is static. It is an ongoing process that develops the richness of our experience because of our ability to be within the frame of the current moment without our thoughts getting in the way. Perhaps at first, it is only for fractions of a second, but with practice this grows into minutes, eventually enriching every aspect of our life-experience.

In a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) everyone is demanding more and better results, but what we normally see happening is the opposite. Before you think I’m crazy and stop reading, please bear with me for just a few more lines. If these are practices that have been around for millennia, what is causing this emergence?
With the emergence of non-invasive technologies of brain imaging, we now know that this could not be so far from the truth. An impressive study from the lab of Richard Davidson recently published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology showed changes in the expression of several genes after only 8 hours of meditation practice.
This support from science is probably the main reason why mindfulness went mainstream, since people now understand the benefits of it and are now feeling secure to start applying these simple practices into their lives.
Most of the studies mentioned previously are from the field of psychology, medicine and health in general. However something interesting is happening in this arena, with Silicon Valley leading a new tendency in the use of mindfulness practices in the workplace. SIY is a program that brings together the latest advancements in neuroscience with the contemplative practices like mindfulness meditation, and is designed to develop the emotional intelligence of its participants.
Several corporations around the world, like General Mills, Genentech, Apple, Sony and even the US Army, are using mindfulness based approaches to increase their overall performance as well as their employees’ wellbeing.

Imagine the impact of these “mature” brains in the skulls of decision makers like politicians, CEO’s and bankers all around the world. Could there be something more important to teach to a human being than the very essence of what it is to be a human being? Moreover, a future where people will use mindfulness as a practice of mental and emotional hygiene, the same way we now take a bath and brush our teeth as practices of physical hygiene. Fortunately, I was one of 30 lucky people selected to be part of the first teacher training certification in Search Inside Yourself methodology.
Mindfulness is a new religion and the beauty of that is…it’s not a religion at all! The first aspect of mindfulness is to be aware of what your mind is focusing on and being able to consciously choose what thoughts you decide to dwell on and which should be allowed to pass through.
Having dreams and setting goals are essential for having a clear understanding of where you are heading and how to get there. You are no longer fighting against your mind but are engrossed in the creative process of utilising all of your skills to the maximum to achieve your dreams. When eating a meal concentrate on the food and chewing it properly, savouring each taste and texture. In the flow means that the subconscious mind has taken over and is no longer being blocked and controlled by the conscious mind. Guiding a live studio audience in an exploration of the fundamentals of mindful parenting, the Kabat-Zinns share how parents can practice and apply mindfulness for their own well-being and to enhance their relationships with their children.

Here are nine of her most effective guided exercises, perfect for beginning or deepening your mindfulness practice. See what is around you, listen to the sounds, taste the air or whatever is in your mouth, feel the warmth, coolness, or breeze on your cheeks, smell the air. So whenever you remember that you are rushing home to relax, or really rushing anywhere, just say to yourself, “rushing, rushing, rushing.” This in itself widens the space between stimulus and response where awareness and choice lies.
Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists and sponsor of the Lynn Lectures on integrative medicine, we brought together three of the world’s leading specialists on the healing power of mindfulness and the benefits of integrative medicine for a discussion of the present and future of mind–body medicine. It’s a great adventure and it’s very satisfying to be able to see people light up as they experience the knowledge that it’s okay to be where they are as they are. Mindfulness becomes a foundation to help patients make good decisions and navigate all they have to go through. Having stability of mind makes you better able to cope with the experience of illness and all it involves.
With so many different perspectives coming to bear on it, including neuroscience and clinical medicine, we will be able to describe it more richly. You could make the argument that there is something we could call “awareness,” and within that general term there are many different ways of being aware. One possible view is this: When we talk about the focus of attention, we often are referring to the dorsolateral, or side, areas. A number of studies suggest that when you bring something into awareness, and describe it, you can move that previously negative energy—a draining thought or cognition—into a new form.
Mindfulness has profound health implications for depression and also for anxiety disorders. Mindfulness helps you to take wise and discerning action, which is vitally important if you want to participate in your own healing process. We know that mindfulness and related interventions reduce stress reactivity and make one less prone to developing these acute illnesses and infections.
Conceivably, if you begin these practices earlier, you may be able to prevent some serious chronic illnesses associated with inflammation.
With mindfulness, they might notice it sooner, when it could be diagnosed at an earlier stage.
Mindfulness can help you notice what the body needs and help you make good lifestyle choices.
It’s very common for the mind to jump to the worst-case scenario and spin a whole story of what’s going to happen.
Starting in childhood by learning mindfulness practices in school would put people on the road to a much more healthy relationship to their body and their emotions. There are so many potential pathways you can go down, and you need to have as much agency as possible in that situation. There is now more than thirty-one years of evidence that the program can make a remarkable difference in people’s relationship to their illness and how it unfolds. That’s one example of a study suggesting how present-moment awareness can make a profound difference in the healing process.
Work by Shauna Shapiro on medical students shows that teaching them mindfulness practices increases their capacity for empathy, and an empathic clinician can have a powerful effect on patient well-being. Mindfulness could serve as an antidote to the incredible pressures that young clinicians are exposed to. Some colleagues of mine and I have been doing work on the idea of “compassionate silence.” Mindfulness and compassion practices can help clinicians to be fully present and spacious in the very condensed time they have to meet with a patient. While it would be wonderful if there were more cures—and more research should definitely bring more cures in the future—healing is always possible, even without curing. If patients and their doctors have access to mindfulness training, it can revive the sacred dimension of the doctor–patient relationship based on the Hippocratic principles. I see it becoming a fundamental part of how clinicians are trained, and I see a new unifying vocabulary emerging that will allow us to talk about subtleties that were left unexamined in our previous ways of talking about and practicing medicine.
The dynamics of the mind and relationships with others are fundamental to what it means to be human and what it means to bring healing into the world. He is also the co-author of The Rules of Victory: How to Transform Chaos and Conflict—Strategies from the Art of War (2008). Most practitioners find over time that they’re gentler with others around them, less reactive, less automatically hostile. Whether taught and practised in friendly environments, or hostile ones in which the prevailing culture is grasping or aggressive, true mindfulness will lead to an increase in kindness, the basis for ethical action. He is a member of the faculty of the School of Life in London, and a frequent public speaker and media commentator on mindfulness-related topics. In a fast paced world, mindfulness enables you to clear your mind of clutter, focus on what is important, and be creative. When I visited Google this spring, it was evident that mindfulness is one of the key reasons behind Google's innovative and harmonious culture. My most creative ideas come from meditating, and meditation has built resilience to deal with difficult times. UCLA's Mindful Awareness Research Center found meditation can improve executive functions (sustaining attention, diminishing distractibility) better than medication in many cases. Researchers found these practices decreased stress levels by 28%, improved sleep quality (20%), reduced pain (19%), and improved productivity 62 minutes per employee per week.
As companies such as Google, General Mills, Blackstone, and Goldman Sachs have shown, mindfulness training decreases stress levels. By practicing mindfulness, mindful leaders exhibit high levels of self-awareness and intentionality in their actions. In recent years, mindfulness is being used increasingly to treat common mental health problems such as depression, stress and stress-related insomnia. We are able to notice and observe what is going on without getting all caught up, especially the unhelpful and negative stuff.
It could be that we’re feeling anger, fear, sadness, past trauma, powerless, unmotivated or just tired.
A mindful practice helps us to connect fully with our whole being, mind, body, heart and soul. With practice, your sense of awareness (or the silent observer as I like to call it) starts to abide more and more in your daily life. When you activate the silent observer, you are also tuning in to your sixth sense or intuition. Insightful, kind and loving come to mind but it’s hard to be sure unless we ourselves are masters.
Masters know that other people provide them with the spiritual nourishment needed to continue growing.
Masters draw inner strength from our divine creator and understands their connection to life itself. Masters use all five physical senses and understand the concept of the silent observer or sixth sense.
Masters understand that happiness isn’t the destination… happiness is the journey!


Masters understand that things happen when they are meant to and that the next step comes at the right time. They know that the human condition reaches beyond physical existence, so they no longer have any fear of the unknown. Masters understand that the actions of others are often not the actions of their authentic self but actions from their egoic nature. Masters have developed an understanding of physical and mental health and do not depend on others for their wellbeing. You can become calm and settled by learning to accept your thoughts, making room for them or letting them go. Mindfulness has evolved and has now become the merging of ancient eastern philosophy and the latest western psychology. Mindful connection with your authentic higher self which is part of universal spiritual energy. Be Mindful is the basis for every guided meditation that I conduct, whether in a group or in one-on-one sessions. Use Be Mindful whenever you have an unhelpful thought or feeling, to shift focus to your values or purpose. Use Be Mindful as a loving trigger that brings about full presence of mind, resulting in heightened intuition and intimacy in your relationships. In the beginning, you believe that if you cannot become number one, you cannot be happy, but if you practice mindfulness you will readily release that kind of idea. Despite this, they have a long history together. One example was Apple CEO Steve Jobs fascination by Zen Buddhism.
So many staff wanted to take part that the company had to open up two additional locations to live stream his lecture.
You have no cultural identification nor ever think of your past or entertain any inclinations to plan a future. Upon opening your eyes, slowly scan the room, taking in as many details as you can, noticing colours, textures, shapes and sounds. Our six sense doors (sight, smell, sound, taste, touch, and thought) are the means by which we experience the world.
The challenge lies within the realm of our thoughts, the single most distracting element to our experience of the current moment.
By focusing intently upon the task at hand there is no room for discursive thinking to populate the quiet space in our mind. It is a skill that can be practiced every second of every day — and just like meditation, willnot be developed simply by reading about it. Our hyper-connected and high-speed living is making us, human beings, more and more stressed, superficial and struggling to deliver “those” better results.
How can we create a “new world”, one that is more healthy, more equitable, and more eco-friendly?
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society (University of Massachusetts Medical School) and one of the main responsible for the emergence of this movement in the West, describes mindfulness as ” the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally”. Let me share five reasons why I believe Mindfulness is emerging now and is our biggest hope for organizational and social change.
Using Richard Davidson’s words (a renowned scientist from the University of Madison-Wisconsin): “The brain we know is the organ that changes in response to experience, and in response to training, probably more than any other organ in our body. These were genes responsible for controlling the inflammatory response of the body, which might explain the reason why meditation practitioners tend to have stronger immune systems, fewer diseases and short recovery periods when they are sick.
According to a 2013 article from WIRED magazine, “Meditation and mindfulness are the new rage in Silicon Valley. Since its creation, more than 1,000 “googlers” (Google employees) have taken part in the course. According to Siegel, health, creativity and wisdom comes from a well-integrated brain, especially in the medial prefrontal cortex. Schools all over the world are already experiencing the impact that these practices have not only on children but on the entire system, from teachers to parents. I can only feel grateful and excited at this opportunity that is a kick starting point to accomplish my dream.
Visualization is another positive way of envisioning positive outcomes for the future, and it is an essential component for the success of life. You find that your emotions begin to work in your favour instead of holding you back out of fear and anxiety. You will enjoy it more and tend to eat less than if you mindlessly wolf it down while trying to read the newspaper. This is the real goal of mindfulness, to allow your conscious mind to get out of the way and allow your subconscious to create the flowing, magical creativity for which it has trained all your life.
From getting the most out of ordinary moments in a family’s day, to navigating challenging situations, to creating a haven in the home, viewers will learn simple and profound ways to cultivate a deeper intimacy with the present moment, thereby deriving greater satisfaction out of the extraordinary enterprise of parenting. Alternatively, you can select the streams of your choice by clicking on each title separately, and add more titles next month. He teaches mindfulness and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) in various venues around the world.
We can bring mindfulness to anything we experience - breathing, eating, thinking, feeling, walking; even physical pain. Tara Brach teaches, “Mindfulness helps us increase our calmness and clarity, access our creativity, and become more open-hearted.” Sounds True producer Randy Roark, who recorded the audio program Mindfulness Meditation with Tara, chose this selection as a simple and transformative practice that anyone can do at any time to return to a natural, centered state of mind. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the author of Wherever You Go, There You Are and Full-Catastrophe Living: Using Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain and Illness. Yet perhaps his greatest gift is his ability to make mindfulness immediately accessible to anyone.
Since 1967, he has studied and practiced different forms of Buddhist meditation under eminent teachers from India, Burma, and Tibet. Erin Olivo offers a liberating program to help you transform anxiety and return to a life of wholeness and balance.
Sometimes when I’m rushing, I’ll notice that I’m “rushing home to relax.” In that moment I become present and realize that I don’t have to rush home to relax, I have arrived in the present moment and can choose to “be” different.
It’s very healing to realize, if only for a moment here and a moment there, that you can be in a wiser relationship with your interior experience than just being driven by liking it or hating it.
You get beyond your internal dialogue of “I want to be better now.” You can be in the midst of great difficulties and yet find immense composure and clarity. I’m fine with calling it a practice, but we have to distinguish it from many other kinds of practice.
There’s nothing wrong with being caught up in difficult, stressful, agitated, or confusing moments. If I am mindfully aware, I will be imbued with all sorts of discernment about whether the action I’m about to take is a good action for the person in front of me and for me.
Wisdom, compassion, empathy, self-understanding, being aware of your own body, being able to be flexible, pausing before you act—all those elements of our mental experience seem to correlate with middle prefrontal activity, not just the side prefrontal activity. They influence the health of the mind, its flexibility and fluidity, its sense of joy and gratitude. Mindfulness of thoughts allows you to be aware of a thought or strong emotion as a kind of a storm in the mind or an event in awareness.
There are many studies supporting this effect, including one that Jon was involved in that showed increased antibody levels after mindfulness practice. These are very helpful for someone undergoing treatment, which is a process involving relationships with family members, friends, and colleagues, as well as caregivers and health administrators.
That’s much healthier than the default mode where you just hope for the best and treat the body more or less as an automobile that you drive into the hospital for repairs when it breaks down. For one thing, it brings a certain peace of mind when you’re an engaged participant as opposed to a passive recipient of treatment. If you go into radiation, chemotherapy, or surgery with greater awareness and mindfulness, that will make a huge difference. With a mindful way of being, you’ve developed your skill to stay present for what you might otherwise try to escape. In addition, two studies out of Harvard and UCLA show structural changes in the right anterior insula suggesting that the regular practice of being mindful leads to changes in the structural connectivity within the nervous system that would indicate an increase in interoceptive ability. Since psoriasis and basal cell carcinoma have kissing-cousin genes in common, maybe it’s possible for the mind to regulate in some way or other the unfolding of even an oncogenic process. A study performed at the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin–Madison showed that health care practitioners who are empathic seem to be able to reduce the duration of the common cold in patients and boost their immune systems. They would benefit from learning skills to help maintain inner resilience, so they can maintain an open, compassionate, receptive place for their patients while also taking care of themselves.
It can move treatment more in the direction of healing the whole person rather than fixing body parts. From the very first time we’re invited to come back to attention, we’re reminded to do this gently. This makes sense of course—the mind that relates to internal experience also connects to the external world, in which we live and work with others.
He is also an advisor to and former co-director of The Mindfulness Initiative, which is supporting the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mindfulness to develop mindfulness-based policies for the UK.
Leaders like Arianna Huffington and Steve Jobs are well known for their mindfulness practices. Leading financial services firms like Blackrock and Goldman Sachs offer mindfulness courses for their employees. After the training, I started meditating twice daily--not as a spiritual practice, but for health reasons. As you do so, you'll worry less about day-to-day problems and focus on what is most important. In this ground-breaking new book, Professor Gilbert, along with his co-author Choden, combines the best of Compassion-Focused Therapy with the most effective mindfulness techniques. I wrote a blog every day in May and the event was truly amazing with hundreds of lives transformed.
A mindful practice also enables us to pause and create more silence and peace of mind throughout our day. With practice, you will be able to readily step back and be the silent observer of your thoughts and feelings. I started my mindful practice in 2009 and also started an intensive five year study into the many aspects of mindfulness. They trust in the intuitive process, not only from people but also from the energy that is connected to life itself. They’re humble nature allows them to be kind and gentle, and be open to everyone they encounter. They understand the challenges of creating a rich, full and meaningful life and never condemn people for their missteps or mistakes.
Masters are free of worry because they understand that inner peace comes from within, and not from external happenings. Please consider joining the team of mindfulness mentors at mindfullyMAD.org (mindfully Making A Difference) Need a little training to be a mindfulness mentor? It also highlights the fact that we often rush or go through the motions while thinking about other things. We need not fear that mindfulness might become only a means and not an end because in mindfulness the means and the end are the same thing. We are forever pulled into reflections of the past, dreams of the future and into the application of those colourful tags of judgment.
How can we collectively create conditions for each human being to manifest their Self (with capital S) and their Work (with capital W), contributing, in that way, to a better world for all of us? And as such, it really is the vehicle for change and transformation as much as it’s the vehicle for anything else.” This characteristic of the brain is called “neuroplasticity” and there are now several neuroscience studies that support this. There is increasing scientific evidence for the connection between emotional intelligence and performance and, according to Meng, whose job title is “Jolly Good Fellow”, this program can help people increase their results, feel happier and… save the world – Meng’s main goal is to create conditions for world peace during his lifetime.
This is a very important brain structure, responsible for functions like body regulation, emotional balance, fear management, attunement with other people and empathy (both necessary for compassion), insights, intuition, impulse management and morality.
Projects like “Mindful Schools” in the US or “.Be” in the UK have already taught mindfulness to hundreds of thousands of children and everybody is feeling more focused, less stressed, more productive and, especially, more at peace.
The question is whether you can choose to focus on those that are empowering and assist in your progress without dwelling on those that take you away from your goals by creating blocks and negative energy.
The key to mindfulness is to know the general direction of your path but to have your mind and energy focused on acting only in the present. The entire process becomes one filled with empowering, positive energy instead of fear and lethargy. The process of being in the flow is one of almost mystical confidence in your own abilities with no judgment or evaluation. Mindfulness is a skill that anyone can learn, offering scientifically-proven benefits such as deep relaxation, less stress, better sleep, more fulfilling relationships, and a greater sense of aliveness. His books include A Heart Full of Peace, One Dharma, Insight Meditation, and The Experience of Insight.
Therefore, the idea that there is a sought-after mind state, and that if you were really good enough you would find it and everything would be great for the rest of your life, would be a misapprehension of what mindfulness really is.
The person using his dorsolateral area is aware of the gun and aims well, because he’s got good attention. They impact relationships, leading to rigid ways of behaving or explosive ways of interacting. Also, when you’re more accepting of what’s going on in the present moment, you bring less resistance and can be a full participant, not just a recipient of radiation and chemotherapy. When a clinician learns to hold whatever is arising, instead of trying to fix it, push it away, run out of the room, or ruminate about the next pressing thing they have to do, that’s profoundly healing for the patient. The patient would be engaged as an important part of the process, doctors would be happier, nurses would be happier, and hospital administrators would be happier. Without this emphasis on friendliness, we set ourselves up for an internal battle, making struggle and stress as we try to force focus. At General Mills Janice Marturano was so successful in mindfulness training that she founded the Institute for Mindful Leadership. The result is an extremely effective approach to overcoming everyday emotional and psychological problems and improving one's sense of wellbeing.
The event became my book Mindful Actions and thousands more lives have been turned around since. Instead of stopping to acknowledge and feel what is coming to the surface, we distract ourselves by eating chocolate, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, focusing on our to-do list, watching TV, working too hard or many other distractions. In 2014, I wrote a book called Mindful Actions and have witnessed many lives transformed through mindful practice. They also have freedom from suffering because they know that inner peace does not depend on material possessions or abundance. Mindfulness can help eliminate depression, anxiety, stress or chronic pain, but not by fixing them. Measuring mindfulness is a science; practising it is an art that requires presence, awareness, connection and living in the moment. A mindful practice is a process that brings about realisation of your true oneness with all that is. It is the mind that however, that evaluates and tosses the tinted cloth over the experience labelling it as something. It seems a bold goal but the most interesting thing is that it has been resonating with thousands of people all over the world who have already bought his book and are applying his teachings.
This is a part of the brain that maturates after adolescence and one practice that contributes to its integrated development is… you guessed it, mindfulness. This will enable you to act and react to current conditions with appropriate action without being limited by either worry or guilt. Giving one activity at a time your full, unwavering attention until it is finished is a trademark of successful people in all fields.
It is almost like your true essence has moved outside of your body and you are simply watching this incredible performance taking place.
Olivo has intensive training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and clinical hypnosis, and has a psychotherapy practice in New York City. But the person who is mindfully aware, we can propose, harnesses all the correlates of wisdom and compassion, and in that moment he either doesn’t pick up the gun, or thinks of other options, or pauses before the impulse turns into action. It also increases their ability to communicate effectively with their caregivers, and helps the caregivers communicate better with them.
Many people do get frustrated when they notice attention wandering, and it’s a key learning when they realize this noticing itself is mindfulness, and that it brings a chance to express care, understanding, patience, and love. He is originally from South Africa where he trained as a lawyer and where he learned meditation under the guidance of Rob Nairn, an internationally renowned Buddhist teacher. I am amazed by the feedback I receive, I especially love hearing from people coming off meds or waking up by way of their mindful practice. This year I have created another facebook event and will be sharing my story, my knowledge and my vision.
The flow on effect is the ability to deepen our presence with our loved ones and everyone we connect with in our daily lives.
At the same time, they recognise that it takes time to observe, investigate and gain the knowledge necessary to achieve mindfulness mastery. We learn to relate in a new way to the things that trouble us, rather than trying to make them go away. Having a mindful practice is about re-training our minds so that we can cope with whatever comes our way. A mindful practice is about doing things on purpose, even if they are sometimes at a fast pace. Friends who might be struggling, needing motivation or haven’t found their purpose yet. Now, when you are done, look at your hand, extend your index finger and touch the tip of your nose. Developing this skill weaves a translucent thread of lucidity throughout the fabric of our existence. The success is so huge that for the first time in Google’s lifetime their attorneys allowed for an internal branded product to be made a spin-off without paying royalties to Google, creating the nonprofit and public benefit corporation SIYLI – Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, which is now delivering the program to people all over the world. Because I really believe that mindfulness is our biggest hope for organizational and social change, and it can really lead to create conditions for world peace. Trying to do too many things at once tends to lead to scattered thinking and a sense of never really finalising any of the things you want to accomplish. Flow can actually put you in the realm of the mystics who connect with the greater power of the universe and allow that unlimited power to heighten all their capabilities.

He is now involved in developing secular mindfulness and compassion programmes drawing upon the wisdom and methods of the Buddhist tradition, as well as contemporary insights from psychology and neuroscience.
Keep in mind that there are many stages to go through to become a master and everyone, both men and women alike, are somewhere on their path to mindfulness mastery. But most importantly, it opens the doors to be the fullest expression of ourselves, inviting in authentic aspects of our being that we haven’t connected with in a very long time.
However, the fear of those possibilities tends to paralyse them from taking the action and bold risks that are needed to achieve ultimate success. This is the ultimate in mindfulness, being aware that you have a direct connection to a source of higher power and trusting that you can access it and use it not just for selfish gains, but to enable you to perform at a level that will inspire others to also aspire to reach their full potential.
He is an honorary fellow of the University of Aberdeen and teaches on their Postgraduate Study Programme in Mindfulness (MSc) that is the first of its kind to include compassion in its curriculum. Minds consumed by the light, dreaming, creating and full of life versus minds consumed by the darkside, nightmarish, destroying and suicidal. Sunlight, wind, rain, snow — terrestrial elements unfolding naturally without judgment; only instinct guiding your way.
Your bird-self maintains no sense of possession over the little-bitty birds that have long since fled the nest, nor ownership of the tree you’re perched in. Upon hearing a melodic trail of twitterings from the neighbouring branch, a bubbling up arises inside you.
