With so many definitions, perspectives and traditions out there regarding mindfulness and empathy, a myriad of questions arise.  Perhaps, as the poet Rilke tells us, “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you win then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

For those looking for a mindful overview, we recommend Jon Kabat-Zinn’s presentation to Google 2007:
