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.
