Mindfulness is now being taught in so many ways, in so many settings and by many different people.
Mindfulness to me is something of beauty. Although it is not a thing, an object, to me it is still beautiful. I often use the image of a jewel to illustrate mindfulness in teaching. A jewel has many facets, you turn the jewel a fraction and there is another facet, shimmering right at you. When running a course, what we are really doing is exploring the jewel of mindfulness, and it is something we explore for the rest of our lives if we commit ourselves to it.
I think it is important to bring out the beauty of mindfulness early on for our students.
