If Mindfulness is, as Google suggests, a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Contemplation goes beyond that. It introduces the dimension of Purpose. We'll explore Jewish texts dating from the first centuries of this era, and include some practical Contemplative exercises.
