What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is being aware of our experience in the present moment and doing our best to meet it without judgment.

 

Three primary skills are the foundation of mindfulness practices - focused attention, amplified awareness of our self and surroundings, and cultivating greater equanimity in how we meet each moment.  

 

We will never be able to eliminate stress from our lives.  We will never be able to control the unforeseen circumstances that crop up, but Mindfulness does empower the practitioner to meet each moment with greater compassion and curiosity.
