What is Mindfulness?

". . . paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment."

             - Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of
                 Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

"Very simply put, mindfulness is bringing the quality of self-awareness to our experience . . . the ability to know that you are knowing . . . a specific way of paying attention."

             - Megan Cowan, cofounder of Mindful Schools
