Today, we conclude Shinzen's What Is Mindfulness? retreat with an exploration of the future of mindfulness and the possibility of what Shinzen considers a "Mindfulness Revolution." Framed as a non-doctrinal skill-set, mindfulness can continue to expand into new frameworks and disciplines. Shinzen takes a look at the factors that could hinder or faciliate and global mindfulness revolution.

Accompanying this talk is Shinzen's final meditation exercise, which you can find on the retreat teaching page.
