In the West, mindfulness has evolved into a secular practice, meant to be accessible to all and appropriate for schools and even governments. But the practice of mindfulness evolved from centuries of refinement within Buddhist culture, translated later by various emigrant teachers. Thich Nhat Hahn is one of the most beloved, an enduring and lively source of wisdom, inspiration, compassion and grace for people around the globe.
Practicing mindfulness means taking the time to pay attention, to appreciate, to get out of our seemingly fixed and frequently habitual ways of living. We more skillfully live our lives as we hope and as we choose. That benefit transcends spirituality and religion.
