Ive mentioned before (in my presentation) that for some time I have been following the teachings by Thich Nhat Hanh. I really enjoy his mindful approach to everyday life, being here and now in every breath as he might express it, so Im wondering if the Insta-Zazen practice is the same kind of approach?

A sidenote:

A while back I stumbled across a teaching by (I think it was) a Soto teacher who said that one should not attempt to be mindful, instead trust that the zazen practice is all that is needed, or something like that. How does Soto relate to being mindful?
