This talk, presented as part of Howard Center's 2017 Spring Community Education Series, expands the definition of mindfulness beyond just present moment attention and explores it as a method for helping us to focus better and engage with ourselves, others and the world in a more beneficial way. At the same time, to be mindful is to embrace equanimity—a peaceful way of engaging with even the most challenging situations. 

This presentation was delivered at in Burlington, Vermont on May 18, 2017 by Arnie Kozac, PhD.
