"Do not dwell in the past; do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment." Buddha

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. “Mindfulness means paying attention in a certain way: intentionally, in the present moment and without prejudice” – Jon Kabat-Zinn.

"True meditation is the way you live your life" - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Why Practicing Mindfulness?

Your mind is like any other part of your being, it benefits from understanding how it works and you can train it to work better. Specifically, the Mindfulness practice has the following benefits:

  • Stability of mind – keeping your mind in a clear waking space than at other extremes of a dull or anxious mind;
  • Flexibility of mind – the ability to shift your mind to any subject you choose, instead of bouncing between a number of problems;
  • Self-awareness – to be aware of the contents of your mind and to understand the typical patterns of your mind;
  • Action instead of reaction – becoming less reactive, e.g. when you are angry and choose how to act.
