Mindfulness is moment-by- moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations and environment in a non-judgmental manner.
Mindfulness meditation is a mind skill – a learning of how to cultivate self-awareness, a greater awareness of others and an awareness of the world through the benevolent filter of loving-kindness.
When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future. Mindfulness allows the practitioner to ‘step back’ and distance themselves from situations, thoughts or feelings that arouse a negative response
In the past decade mindfulness-based programs have exploded in the world. They are accepted as effective techniques for ushering in a new way of functioning and living. Today it is widely accepted also as a technique that can lead to a changed pattern of living for the hyper-connected, stressed, fragmented individual. We are living in an era where mindfulness practice has become mainstream and is offered commercially and privately as an integral part of life.
Introduced to world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos, 2012, as a proven tool for effectively “rebooting civilization with new software”, this 2,600-year old transformative discipline that lies at the heart of meditation. In 2016 it reached a tipping point, with as many as 6 sessions on mindfulness being conducted by teachers led by Jon Kabat–Zinn; thought by many to be the father of modern mindfulness practices.
