Many who have been practicing meditation for a while know that the true test is bringing the practice out from the confines of one’s home and into the world. Meaning, cultivating a sense of mindfulness in all of one’s day-to-day activities. No small feat to say the least, mindfulness meditation begins by bringing conscious awareness to one’s thoughts, beliefs, feelings, and sensations without attaching labels or meaning.
Erin Johnson and Cara Marinucci introduce us to the practice of mindfulness meditation in this recent meditation podcast. Based on the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Johnson and Marinucci build on quotes from Kabat-Zinn’s book, Wherever You Go, There You Are, as a way to show how mindfulness meditation can have profound relevance for our everyday lives. The purpose? To live in harmony with ourselves and the world around us.
