“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally” Jon Kabat-Zinn, Founder of modern, secular mindfulness
Mindfulness teaches techniques that enable you to be fully aware in the present moment, shifting your wandering mind away from dwelling in the past and from anxiety about the future. Through increasing your awareness, you can learn to observe your feelings and emotions objectively and without judgment towards yourself or others, and change the way you think about and respond to events in your life.
Mindfulness, as taught today, is a modern, non-religious practice that is accessible to everyone. While it has been developed in its current form for less than 50 years, the techniques can be found in ancient traditions, including Buddhism.
