Marilyn Certner Smith guest posted on this blog some months ago, speaking about Mindfulness and the aphasia therapist. Here, Jon Kabat Zinn elegantly defines Mindfulness as Heartfulness:<p>Jon Kabat-Zinn “Heartfulness” from Omega Institute on Vimeo.</p>
Brene Brown, in her TED talk, also speaks of “The Whole-Hearted,” people who embrace vulnerability and in doing so, make connection with others deeper and more meaningful.
The Integrated Therapist does the same every time she extends herself beyond the edges of the space called “therapy,” and opens even a little bit to what is there. Kabat Zinn tries to demystify it, move it away from an academic or intimidating perspective, and bring it to the common place where we can reach across the interpersonal divide.
How about you?
