...nothing more than a conversation between Congressman Tim Ryan and several mindfulness “experts” including Jon Cabat-Zinn, an MIT-trained Molecular Biologist, who founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.
JON KABAT-ZINN: The way I define it is the awareness that arises from paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. So in a sense the cultivation of mindfulness is observing how mindless you are almost all the time. Certainly true for me. I mean the mind goes off and then with awareness you bring it back.
