Jon Hanc of The New York Times recently wrote an interesting article about a mindfulness awareness sessions, hosted by the Hammer Museum in California and conducted by instructors from the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. The article, which you can read here discusses the benefits of the program, and mindfulness meditation in general. The sessions are captured as podcasts, so if you are not in Los Angeles but want to learn how to practice mindfulness, you can.
