What Is Mindfulness?

May 24, 2019

Romano laura small

Laura Cohen Romano is director of spiritual care and mindfulness for the Einstein Healthcare Network. She first came to Einstein in 2009 as director of chaplaincy, language and culture, and volunteer services. Laura began her own journey with meditation 25 years ago, and with evidence-based mindfulness meditation and practices 12 years ago. Following her growing passion to share the many benefits of mindfulness, she pursued training as a mindfulness teacher, first through teacher training at the Mindfulness Institute at the Jefferson Myrna-Brind Center for Integrative Medicine, and then receiving her teacher qualification through the University of California-San Diego School of Medicine Center for Mindfulness.

Mindfulness and/or mindfulness meditation can be intimidating to many people. They're not sure if they're doing it correctly — or at all. People worry they can't completely clear their minds and become frustrated. While mindfulness can't make cancer or other chronic illness go away, it can help people with a disease have better quality of life by easing pain, stress, and worry.

Listen to the podcast to hear Laura explain:

  • exactly what mindfulness and mindfulness meditation are
  • where mindfulness started
  • some common myths about mindfulness

For the last 5 minutes of the podcast, Laura leads a short, guided mindfulness meditation so everyone can experience mindfulness.
