What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn't more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. (Sylvia Boorstein)

Mindfulness is moment-to-moment awareness. Mindfulness provides us with strategies that enable us to gain rewards in the short and long term – because it teaches us to look within and not without. Once there is an awareness of the inner this illuminates the outer. This then leads to an awareness of the connectedness between the two and all that is around us in a most profound way.

Practising Mindfulness
Practising mindfulness is a way to achieve contentment, no matter what the circumstances are. It is a way to learn how to become aware of you as you really are and the world around you as it really is. It removes wrong beliefs, distorted perceptions, fears, fantasies and obsessional thinking and replaces unhealthy states of mind with contentment, happiness, goodness, generosity, patience and other positives states of mind. It awakens and brings to the forefront authenticity that comes from your innermost being. Mindfulness provides a simple and powerful way for stress reduction. It brings about calmness, even in situations that would otherwise be stressful and unhealthy.
