The Flighty Nature of Attention 

Meditation teacher Will Kabat-Zinn explores how meditation allows us to stumble upon something we’ve always wanted: a settled, stable mind in the midst of the chaos of life. We live at the mercy of our thoughts and thought patterns, he says, and as we begin to cultivate attention—which requires us to move counter to much of the mainstream direction of our society and economy—we gain a little stability.

Confessions of an Anxious Meditator 

The poster-child picture of the meditator is often someone with a blissed-out beatific smile, looking as if they are about to float into space. In fact, meditation puts us in touch with the anxiety we all carry as living, breathing human beings. And that’s why it can be so helpful. Read More

Testimonials

The reach of mindfulness is constantly expanding and Mindful Magazine plays a critical role in this growth. Mindful Magazine is a great resource and support for everyone teaching, practicing, learning, and being introduced to mindfulness.

Ali Smith, Holistic Life Foundation

Mindful has become a really important resource for me and my own family. My own mother reads it, which is quite shocking to me, that my mother reads Mindful magazine, never having expressed any interest in this topic before. But I think it says something about the skill with which you can bring this topic to a wide audience and help people feel comfortable with what might seem like exotic strangeness to some. What you do is make it so accessible and so human that how can it not be the success that it’s become.

Jeremy Hunter, Assistant professor of practice at the Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University.

Mindful has already helped tremendously in that it has had a major effect in mainstream people recognizing that these practices are human practices and helpful to all of us.

Mirabai Bush, Co-founder of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society

The work that Mindful has been doing since launching has really been supportive of me and others in the field already. Just having Mindful publication and web resources available really has helped me in the work of mainstreaming mindfulness, normalizing it as a way of supporting effectiveness and thriving in our lives that is accessible to everybody.

Rhonda Magee, Professor of Law at the University of San Francisco, leading presenter in mindfulness for lawyers.
