sometimes hear the word mindfulness and think "religion". BUT the reality

is that focusing our attention in this way is a biological process that

promotes health - a form of brain hygiene - NOT a religion. Various

religions may encourage this health-promoting practice, but learning the

skill of mindful awareness is simply a way of cultivating what we have
