Mindfulness - life's most important life-skill

Abstract

Mindfulness is a generic skill that has an infinite number of applications. Being able to effectively engage attention is a pre-requisite for virtually anything else we want to do and for that reason is the single most important life-skill we ever learn. This introductory presentation will explore the science, philosophy and practice of mindfulness including its role in fostering better mental and physical health, and in the management of smoking.
