About Mindfulness

What is Mindfulness?

“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 History

Mindfulness Explained

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. More recently, Mindfulness has evolved with different branches dealing primarily with stress reduction, depression or pain management. (more…)

How To Do It

Everything we do in life can be done mindlessly (without awareness) or mindfully (with awareness). Mindful practice involves a wide range of practical techniques including mindful breathing, mindful movement, scanning bodily sensations, listening to sounds and observing the thoughts and feelings that flow through our minds and bodies.

Health Benefits

Mindfulness is an effective practice, proven to reduce the suffering associated with physical and mental pain, stress and depression. Mindfulness teaches you that pain naturally comes and goes. You learn to observe it, rather than getting caught up in it and, as you do so, something remarkable happens. It begins to melt away! (more…)
