It’s always exciting to me when I witness more and more people from all walks of life begin to see the value of mindfulness training.
And just recently, Anderson Cooper and the folks at CBS just put out a 60 Minutes episode on that very topic.
This really underscores just how mainstream mindfulness has become.
In fact, I often see this when I attend business meetings – many people will approach me, asking me to show them how to meditate (even though I’m not a meditation teacher).
So in case you haven’t come across the video yet, I thought I’d share it with you.
You can check out the video below – it’s only 13 minutes (not 60). But just a quick warning – the clip includes a commercial.
(Now, could I have had one of the kids here edit the commercial out? Yes, but I’d run the risk of violating 60 Minutes’ copyright. So as much as I don’t want to pass along a commercial, I also want to respect 60 Minutes’ property.)
Bringing mindfulness to more people has always been part of our mission here at NICABM, so it’s encouraging to see someone like Anderson Cooper sharing his experience on such a large scale. It’s more evidence that once people start practicing, it often changes their life.
So I’d like to hear how mindfulness might be helping in your practice. Have you suggested meditation to any of your clients who suffer from anxiety? And has it helped?
