Abstract

Is there a connection between being healthy and being more consciously present? Do meditation practices that emphasize nonjudging awareness promote movement toward greater levels of health, including improvements in anxiety and related disorders? Can one successfully assume a larger degree of responsibility for one’s own health by adopting a personal meditation practice? Is it possible to establish an effective and broadly replicable training program in mindfulness meditation that appeals to individuals of diverse social, medical, and spiritual backgroundswhoshare a common motivation to improve their personal health outcomes? Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) was born of such questions.
