in class discussion, mindfulness came up. here are some resources i have used for years to work on my own “practice of mindfulness”

excellent audio CD on proper breathing: a gateway to mindfulness

http://www.amazon.com/Ken-Cohens-Guide-Healthy-Breathing/dp/1591794412/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1270921310&sr=8-7

visualization techniques and meditations i have been using for years

http://www.amazon.com/Qigong-Meditations-Ken-Cohen/dp/1591794358/ref=pd_sim_b_1

Eckhardt Tolle is a recently popular “mindfulness” guru, but there is a somewhat unhealthy cultish phenomenon associating with him that concerns me

Alan Watts (Baba Ram Dass) was one of the early westerners to adopt the buddhist mindset/framework

to me,  Ken Cohen has non-denominational and lifelong credentials, and approaches the work with humility and commitment and selflessness, which is why i recommend his work

    Ken, Thanks for this post. I have read many books and authors who have their own take on mindfulness. It’s important not to jump on a “band wagon” of any author or assume that there is one answer. When a particular sect or denomination speaks of their way as “the” way, I walk in the other direction. I’m not familiar with the work of Ken Cohen, but I will check it out. Thanks for the recommendation. I have been wanting to check out the Qigong classes at my church. I’ve written a few posts on mindfulness on my blog Daily Spiritual Tools and would love your feedback. The most recent post is called “The “I” That Observes Me.” Namaste, Sherry
