I’ve practiced mindfulness and meditation since 1977, and have had the good fortune to have learned from some of the greatest teachers in the world.
In 2000, I took personal vows to commit my life to mindfulness (admittedly, I haven’t been diligent in recent years).
In my 2003 book — now out-of-print — the longest chapter was called, “Mindfulness: The Secret to Health Change?”
Around 2004, I founded a small mindfulness group in upstate New York that is still going strong.
If I had final words of wisdom to offer my kids, I’d commit my last breaths to advising them to practice mindfulness.
That said, I still believe mindfulness is being oversold in the corporate and wellness worlds.
