Mindful Meditation

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

Simply, mindfulness is slowing down enough to notice all of the small things inside you and in your environment without judgment.

Mindfulness is an emotionally non-reactive state. We don’t judge any of our experiences as one is good and one is bad. Or if we do make those judgements, we simply notice them and let them be.  We accept whatever arises. We observe it mindfully. We notice it passing through us and we become at ease with it.

Cognitively, mindfulness is aware that certain experiences are pleasant and some are unpleasant, but on an emotional level we simply don’t react. We call this “equanimity” – stillness and balance of mind.

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

Mindfulness Meditation uses the breath as a focus point to develop mindfulness. When we focus on the breath we become aware of the thoughts that move through our mind.

With practice we learn how to witness our thoughts but not get embroiled in them.  Concentrating on the breath brings us back to the present moment so we can enjoy what is now.
