Cultivating Awareness

A quick thought to share as I learn more about encouraging mindfulness in my students, especially those with anxiety issues.

Too much of the education system orients students toward becoming better thinkers, but there is almost no focus on our capacity to pay attention and cultivate awareness. We can learn to bring together the body’s various systems to fine tune the body and mind, so we can navigate life’s ups and downs in a way that minimizes stress and maximizes well-being.

– Jon Kabat-Zinn, in conversation with Stephan Rechtschaffen, cofounder of the Omega Institute via Mindful magazine

Ode of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
