Mindfulness - Here & Now: Interview with Hugh Byrne

Smithsonian Associates, Interview Series

As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living series, our guest today on The Not Old Better Show is Hugh Byrne. Hugh Byrne is the author of well received book, "The Here and Now Habit, How Mindfulness Can Help You Break Unhealthy Habits Once and for All."

The turmoil of daily life has left many of us coping with stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental, physical, and emotional problems. One promising source of relief has been uncovered through scientific studies: mindfulness. A contemplative practice rooted in Buddhist teachings, mindfulness cultivates inner calm and emotional balance. It’s even been shown to cause structural changes to the brain. More and more, individuals, companies, and institutions are discovering its benefits in work and daily life.

This daylong workshop led by Hugh Byrne explores the Buddhist origins of mindfulness, discusses the benefits demonstrated in research studies, examines its role in changing harmful habits, and provides skills and practices to use in daily life.
