"A deeply engaging book which both Buddhist meditators and secular mindfulness practitioners around the globe will find useful. To help clarify mindfulness, Eric Harrison explores the relationships, overlaps, and divergences between western Buddhist meditation and secular mindfulness. Whatever your particular views and preferences on the subject, TheFoundations of Mindfulness will help you locate them. I also enjoyed Eric's translation of the Satipatthana Sutta for its accessibility."
--Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness
"The Satipatthana Sutta is one of the Buddha's foundational teachings on mindfulness. This commentary by a staunchly non-Buddhist mindfulness teacher makes for a stimulating and, at times, provocative read."
--David Michie, author of The Dalai Lama's Cat series and Mindfulness is Better Than Chocolate
