FAQ

What is mindfulness?

To be in the present moment is mindfulness. As a central theme of the Buddhist tradition, its practice dates back over two millennia, but has since spread into various other spiritual and non-spiritual forms. Visit “about mindfulness” for more.

What is engaged living?

Engaged living is about living in a deep awareness of our truth and what comes from that is an innate need to be fully engaged in whatever we do and to fully connect with life. Visit “about engaged living” for more.

Who is The Mindful Word?
