Mindfulness Jon Kabat-zinn

I am not good at coming up with topics to write because my mind works with triggers. Some question or some incidence will trigger a set of disconnected thoughts that are really connected if some one looks at brain as a network of interconnected neurons. After all our brain is nothing but full of fat and a set of sparsely interconnected billions of neurons and knowledge is just a pattern that excites some of them at the time of application of that knowledge.

This morning I had a trigger and it triggered Mindfulness because some body talked about “Attention”. I am trying to improve my knowledge about “Attention” so I created a facebook group at the url http://ysu.facebook.com/group.php?gid=8420304101

And Mindfulness is connected to Attention in a very intimate way. I have read up on Jon Kabat-Zin big time. Him and Richard Davidson using FMRI scanning techniques from Cognitive Neuroscience to investigate meditative practices.

Here is his bio on Wikipedia
