Mindfulness is part of every culture.
The Zulu word "Sawubona" is usually translated as "I see you."
Orland Bishop eloquently adds more nuance:
Sawubona is one of those primal words, from when people were still able to really see each other. The word means "We see you" so it's not a single "I" person. My eyes are connected to a dimension of reality we call ancestory.
The response, Ngikhona, means "Yes, we see you too."
Seeing is a dialog that empowers us to investigate this moment of time: What does being together give us, here in this moment?
