What is mindfulness to you?

Being very serious about constantly observing, questioning, caring, and cultivating oneself.

How do you use mindfulness in your work, research, or practice?

I promote mindfulness exercises in the classroom.

How can mindfulness transform society?

Social transformation is always a reflection of our state of mind, collective consciousness, sense of connectivity and subjectivity. Mindfulness is one way to cultivate these states. Social transformation will just follow.

What does the future hold for the practice of mindfulness?

We will understand that mindfulness is needed as much as eating or sleeping.
