Besides breathing, another key to Miraval's philosophy is the concept of mindfulness. What does that mean? "It's all about awareness," Dr. Oz says. "A lot of us see the world in black and white. Mindfulness means you see it in Technicolor, you appreciate subtleties. A butterfly coming by, the way the food feels in your mouth, things that you don't often think about. But as you begin to realize they're out there, you recognize that 1 percent of reality is what's important to us. And you can focus on that."
