Mindfulness Meditation is about learning to experience life fully as it unfolds - moment by moment. One popular misconception about meditation is that it is a way to make your mind blank so you can escape from what you are feeling. However, author Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn wants you to understand that meditation is an invitation to wake up, experience the fullness of your life, and transform your relationship with your problems, your fears, and any pain and stress in your life.
The world between our ears - the world of I, me, and mine - is not real. It is a fabrication, a story we have spent a lifetime making up and believing....

We start to know ourselves as the pure, luminous awareness that sees and experiences reality here and now. This knowing may be intellectual at first, but gradually it becomes embodied.
