What is Mindfulness?

Noah's Bali Pictures 6 16 038
“Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, as if your life depended on it, nonjudgmentally."
- Jon Kabat-Zinn

"Awareness is the power that is concealed within the present moment. … The ultimate purpose of human existence, which is to say, your purpose, is to bring that power into this world."
- Eckhart Tolle
