Summary

Discover how our brains are actually predisposed, evolutionarily, to psychological distress. Learn about the human “negativity bias,” and how our tendency to both anticipate and try to avoid pain leads to problems. Consider what mindfulness teaches us about the mind, and what challenges might arise in practicing mindfulness - beginning with awareness of breath.

Nothing New

A pretty good, pedestrian overview of mindfulness meditation. Without adding or subtracting anything from what dozens, if not hundreds of other authors have written to date.
