Mindfulness is a time-honored, scientifically proven method for reducing stress, improving health, boosting mood, and achieving lasting happiness and peace of mind. The resources offered on this page provide everything you need to begin, develop, and deepen your mindfulness practice. I’m happy to be able to share with you the secrets I’ve learned over more than 40 years as a teacher and practitioner of mindfulness and author of the bestselling guidebook Meditation for Dummies.
