Introduction to Mindful Awareness


Diana Winston




Learn mindful awareness, the art of paying attention to the present moment. Diana Winston, director of Mindfulness Education, discusses how mindfulness can reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote well-being.


So I'm really happy to be here. I'm the Director of Education, mindfulness education at the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. And I speak a lot about what mindfulness is. And I do it in a way that I hope is going to be of interest to you and helpful to you. And of course, it'll be very experiential.

But I wanted to start the presentation with just some of the basics of what mindfulness is, and give you a little bit about the background and the science behind it. Because I think some of the science is quite interesting and helpful in understanding why mindfulness might be for you.
