Abstract: The article discusses the ways in which humanists and atheists view meditation and mindfulness, focusing on the value that the mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) meditation program has for mental and physical health. Topics include MBSR's focus on the present moment, its relation to the humanism's philosophy of life, and secular, evidence-based elements of meditation.
