Have you heard of “mindfulness meditation?” Meditation, or deep breathing and quiet thinking, used to be found only at spiritual places and yoga centers. These days mindfulness meditation can be found almost everywhere in the United States – from offices to schools, from prisons to the military. The central idea in the Mindfulness Meditation Movement is experiencing the moment – thinking about the present, not the past or future. The mindfulness movement has been going on for many years. But now, it is being called a revolution. Supporters say this revolution may reduce tension and improve the body, mind and spirit. For example, many people feeling nervous when they have to visit a doctor for their teeth. You might be surprised to hear that the dentist can feel this way too. Alona Bauer is a dentist in Washington, D.C. She says her small workspace and the exacting nature of her work can create tension. Ms. Bauer says she reduces her tension with mindfulness meditation at a yoga center in the city. She says she believes the exercise quiets the noise in her head and even slows her heartbeat. Hugh Byrne has been teaching mindfulness meditation since 2000. He says being mindful is all about thinking about the present. Critics dismiss “mindful meditation” as a temporary popular interest. They say it ignores the moral substance of the ancient Buddhist tradition of meditation. But Mr. Byrne notes that not all people are religious. He says mindfulness meditation is a broad doorway open to all kinds of people. And, dentist Alona Bauer says she is thinking about trying Buddhism.
