Meditation origin: Secular Mindfulness

Secular Mindfulness

Secular Mindfulness combines ancient Buddhist traditions with modern psycological theory, and includes many of the traditional elements of mindfulness without the cultural or religious aspects. 40 years ago Jon Kabat-Zinn was one of the first Western teachers to bring mindfulness into a clinical setting, making the practice more widely acceptable in the mainstream. It involves being more aware of our habitual thoughts and tendencies and approaching these without judgement. This simplified, accessible version of mindfulness is now taught in schools, universities, workplaces, prisons and hospitals.
