What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is paying attention to our present moment experiences with openness, curiosity, and a willingness to be with what it is.

Or to put it very simply mindfulness simply means Being Present for our lives.  Sounds simple enough, but those of us living in the 21st century, spend much of our waking hours, worrying, problem solving, racing against deadlines, re-living the past, planning the future, texting, tweeting, logged in, plugged in, and on call. This constant stream of business is starting to wreak havoc on our nervous systems and has left many of us feeling, stressed-out, anxious, unhappy, tired, and disconnect from ourselves.

The good news is that we can learn to get off this roller coaster ride by practicing MINDFULNESS. Mindfulness practices and mindfulness-based meditation strengthens a person’s cognitive ability to regulate his or her emotions. If you are one of the many, many people who feels stressed, anxious, tense or worried, I would highly recommend giving it try!  Spending even a few minutes a day doing mindfulness practices can restore your calm. And you can practice mindfulness wherever you are — whether you’re out for a walk, riding the bus, waiting at the doctor’s office, or even in the middle of a difficult business meeting.

Through mindfulness we can learn to be with whatever is coming up in our lives, which helps us to develop a different relationship to ourselves and the world around us.  People of all races, religions, cultures, ages, and professions are discovering mindfulness as way to be more calm, patient, compassionate, focused, present, and peaceful.

“When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we  begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love.”
