Practice does make perfect … so what are we practicing all day? Whether we are conscious of it or not, our daily habits constitute a practice that can keep us stuck in reactionary patterns. Jon Kabat-Zinn, the author of Coming to Our Senses and the founder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic, defines mindfulness practice as paying attention to the present moment non-judgmentally. In this audio clip, he talks about why the practice of mindfulness should not be reserved for the meditation cushion—and how the light of awareness help us see a new way of being in the world.
