MINDFULNESS

Meditation is an ancient practice that has been taught for thousands of years as part of spiritual traditions. Mindfulness is a form of meditation and is our ability to observe any situation we encounter (both internally and externally) with openness, curiosity and non-judgement.

 

To be Mindful is to be present – focussed on the here and now, not focussed on the past or future. It is a practice of focussing our attention and stepping out of ‘auto-pilot’.

 

It is the cultivation of awareness of ourselves, other people and our participation in daily life and is widely used by elite athletes, sporting teams, military special-forces, business leaders and clinical therapists.
