What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a practice in which one pays attention on purpose to present experience, without judgment. By slowing down, being fully present, and examining the mind and emotions with acceptance, the mindfulness practitioner can find:
• Freedom from suffering • An increased ability to stay in the present moment • More openness to "things just as they are”
Acknowledging present moment reality is the first step toward transformation and insight. Because of insights that arise from self observation, practitioners often experience an increase in positive mind states such as joy, compassion, equanimity, and kindness.
Research has shown that mindfulness based interventions are helpful and effective for overall health and well-being, specifically:
- Emotional Reactivity
- Personal Growth
- Anger/Stress Management
- Job or Relationship Stress
- Anxiety/Panic Disorders
- Chronic Pain
- Auto Immune Diseases
- Coping with Cancer
