The Five Mindfulness Trainings

"The Five Mindfulness Trainings are one of the most concrete ways to practice mindfulness.  They are nonsectarian and their nature is universal. They are true practices of compassion and understanding.  All spiritual traditions have their equivalent of The Five Mindfulness Trainings."  Thich Nhat Hanh
