The core invitation of mindfulness is for you to befriend yourself. That means recognizing and inhabiting your own intrinsic wholeness and beauty in the only moment any of us ever has—namely this one.

This website is meant to facilitate engaging with your life and your moments in this way. It offers an array of resources for deepening your interest and engagement if you are so inclined.

Mindfulness involves being much more than it involves doing anything. Still, some degree of effort and discipline are involved. In the end, it is a love affair, the invitation to live your life as if it really matters in each timeless moment—and it does.

The JKZ Meditations App, with over 36 different guided meditations of varying lengths and focus, now provides the most comprehensive glide path into Jon’s teachings, and this Way of being.

Mindfulness is an intrinsically ethical stance. At this moment in time, nothing could be more important to actualize for the health of humanity and the planet as a whole. The seemingly small is hardly insignificant—it is huge.

There are an infinite number of ways to practice mindfulness skillfully, and many different teachers and teachings to learn from. All are ultimately different doors into the very same room—the room of open-hearted human awareness. That awareness is a form of intelligence—an unrecognized superpower really. It is always here, always available to tap into, maybe even to take up residency in for extended stretches of time. Then life itself becomes the real meditation practice.

Finding the doorway that is right for you is part of the ongoing adventure of living mindfully. As you will see from the Indra’s Net section, there are many different doors into the room of mindfulness, which being about awareness itself, is essentially boundless. I hope you find the doorways offered here to be beneficial and congenial.

Welcome!
