What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness means paying attention to life’s experiences as they really are in the present moment.

It is associated with openness and non-judgment, with patience and acceptance, without bias or expectation, without clinging to our pleasant experiences or rejecting our unpleasant ones and with flexibility of attention on different aspects of our experience.

Mindfulness training develops conscious awareness and focused attention. This enables us to become more aware of our behaviour and interaction, to respond skillfully to events in our lives and to past patterns of behaviour, and to act consciously in line with our values.
