"Meditation is a way of being, not a technique. Meditation is not about trying to get anywhere else. It is about allowing yourself to be exactly where you are and as you are, and for the world to be exactly as it is in this moment as well.
Meditation is the cultivation of the gesture of welcoming unflinchingly whatever arises – of welcoming it wholeheartedly into awareness.
We take care of the future best by taking care of the present now."
Founding Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
