What is mindfulness?

How much time do you spend remembering things that have happened in the past or thinking about things that are going to happen in the future? What is happening now – the present moment?

Mindfulness is seeing things more clearly, and paying attention moment to moment to moment. When you are mindful, you notice what is happening—as it is happens. Mindfulness creates a space, a pause in which you can respond considerately to situations, rather than react. Creative possibilities open up; new ways of being with life’s challenges can present themselves.

Today, there is a growing interest in mindfulness. The new breakthroughs in neuroscience show that by practicing mindfulness, the brain can be shaped for greater happiness, love, wisdom and greater emotional balance in turbulent times, as well as healthier relationships, more effective actions, and greater peace of mind.

Mindfulness Everyday programs are based on the principles of the MBSR workshop, an 8-week program created by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979.

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises
when paying attention to the present moment,
with non-judgment.

Peace begins with us. The practice of non-harming is the field of training. The second field of training has to do with the development of concentration and a strong, mindful awareness. Mindfulness is the basis for wise action. When we can see clearly what is happening in the moment, wisdom can direct our choices and actions, rather than the old habits simply playing out our patterns of conditioning.” ~Joseph Goldstein, A Heart Full of Peace
