"Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment..."
- Jon Kabat-Zinn
For most of us, when this happens, it's unexpected, maybe while walking on a mountain trail on a crisp autumn day, or being so focused in work or play that you are not thinking about past or future, or connecting with someone in a way that makes it seem like time is standing still. This state of being alive and whole in the present moment is available to all of us, but it typically eludes us, especially in times of difficulty and external pressures.
The programs and materials described on this site are designed to help you experience mindfulness more consistently in life, work and relationship. Some resources provided here are opportunities for group learning and practice, some are individual or self-guided in nature, and there are also many online resources, including video clips, practice guides, interviews and excerpts.
The next live class will begin in March. See MBSR Course for more information.
I hope you enjoy your exploration of this site and its resources... - Dave Potter
