What is Mindfulness Training?

Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. This practice is increasingly being used to reduce stress, improve concentration, manage difficult emotions and physical pain, and reduce unwanted behaviors. Mindfulness has been practiced for thousands of years, either by itself or as part or a larger tradition.
