Mindfulness has become a commonly dropped word lately. To clear up the meaning, mindfulness meditation is not to "Zen" or "Bliss" out. Mindfulness is the intentional training of the mind to come back to the present. There is no magical cure for suffering. It's about learning to be with the body, mind and emotions in a kind and compassionate way.
