A central element of the Buddhist path is the practice of mindfulness—the skill of meeting our moment-to-moment experience with an open heart and kindness and without judgment. Mindfulness can help practitioners abandon mental states and behaviors such as greed and anger that cause harm. It can also cultivate those that lead to happiness and freedom, such as compassion, generosity, and gratitude.

In an interactive presentation Hugh Byrne, a senior teacher with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, shares the foundations of mindfulness and its benefits, leads a guided meditation, and conducts a Q&A session. He is the author of two books on mindfulness and habit change, The Here-and-Now Habit and Habit Swap.
