SHAMASH ALIDINA podcast excerpt: “Mindfulness was life-changing when I learned it. I was very skeptical, a typical scientist. I thought it was mumbo-jumbo. I was quite reluctant to try it. But if you had to define it in one word, I would say ‘awareness.’ It’s about training your awareness in a particular way.”
Currently, he works part-time at a London secondary school, where he teaches children how to practise meditation. He spends the remainder of his time running mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) courses in London.
