1. Andy Puddicombe’s awesome TED talk (10 minutes)
When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes? No texting, talking or even thinking? Mindfulness expert Any Puddicombe describes the transformative power of doing just that: refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. Oh, and he juggles tomatoes while he talks!

In this short video, Jon Kabat-Zinn answers the question “What is mindfulness?” and discusses the hard work and rewards of practicing mindfulness.
3. Ellen Langer: The dangers of mindlessness and the power of mindfulness (22 minutes)
Ellen Langer is an artist, Harvard psychology professor and author who is often referred to as the ‘mother of mindfulness.’ In this clip she illustrates the true cost of living on autopilot and the power of mindful living. She’s a funny and entertaining speaker. Definitely worth a watch!

Eckhart has a talent for distilling what meditation really is all about. After you watch this clip you’ll have more clarity about meditation and how it can be a way of life.

A wonderful 10-minute clip from the DVD released by the ‘center for mindfulness’ which provides an overview of the science behind mindfulness and the history of MBSR program (which is a wonderful mindfulness course that I highly recommend).
6. My video ‘what is mindfulness and what does it mean to you?’ (5 minutes)
