About Mindfulness
Mindfulness is an integrative, mind-body approach to life that helps people relate effectively to their experience. It involves paying attention to our own subjective thoughts, feelings and body sensations, in a way that can increase awareness, help us manage difficult experience and increase space to make wise choices. Recently this approach entered into the mainstream culture. A “Google” search on “mindfulness” results in millions of hits, and mindfulness based therapies are growing in popularity, with teachers and programs all around the globe.
