TED Talk: All it takes is 10 mindful minutes

Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts, getting rid of emotions, somehow controlling the mind. But actually it's … about stepping back, seeing the thought clearly, witnessing it coming and going.

 (Andy Puddicombe)

He talks about meditation, but I believe that what he highlights applies equally well to mindfulness. While one might quibble with his emphasis on "doing nothing", the message is clear and relevant.
