Mindfulness is a particular type of attention. It is characterized by a spatious, open, non-judgemental, present moment awareness.
I conduct educational research on contemplative approaches (including mindfulness practices) to transformative education for sustainability.
I have been practicing Theravada Buddhism and Vipassana meditation for over a decade. I practice daily and attend extended silent retreats twice per year. My meditation practice is one of the most important things in my life.
Mindful attention allows one to become aware their condititioned mind-states. Before we can transform society, we must be willing to transform our minds. Before we can transform our minds, we must be willing to know them.
The future is uncertain! Pay attention to the present!
