What is mindfulness
Put simply, mindfulness is the practice of paying attention, on purpose, and with open-hearted curiosity, to the present moment – to what is happening in your body, your mind and in the world around you.
Mindfulness is all about living in the present - being aware of what is happening right now, instead of dwelling in the past or focusing on the future. Cultivating this ability to observe, without judgement, can help us to respond to our experiences with clarity and focus, rather than reacting out of old habits and patterns.
Cultivating a regular mindfulness practice can help us move towards greater balance, choice and participation in our lives. It can give us the capacity to feel more curious, to live with greater acceptance, and to accept our thoughts, emotions, physical sensations and situation, without judging them as good or bad.
Mindfulness opens up the possibility of living with more authority and working wisely and compassionately with life’s challenges, so we can choose what is most nourishing, for ourselves and others.Learn More
