About The Book
Mindfulness means being open to the moment, in full appreciation of its miracle—even when it’s not how you would have wished for the moment to be. Mindful Responder is a book and initiative to create space in public safety agencies for exploring and embracing concepts such as meditation, controlled breathing, and deeper awareness of our physical and emotional states. Improved situational awareness, tactical focus, physical fitness, and mental toughness—there’s a huge untapped role for mindfulness to play in public safety. Thank you for being a part of it.

Mindfulness is about grounding yourself to where you are so that you can respond to the situation you’ve been called to
I was, to put it mildly, skeptical about mindfulness and meditation—until I read this book. … Essential reading that’s going to do a lot of first responders a lot of good!

Mindfulness and meditation are powerful tools to sharpen the mind and reduce stress. No one needs these tools more than first responders.
