Mindfulness Defined

Mindfulness is the capacity to be aware of our moment to moment experience with less judgment, fear and grasping and developing our capacity for curiosity, kindness and gratitude. Instead of unconsciously reacting to life based on past habits and conditioning we learn to consciously respond to life with greater curiosity, openness, acceptance, and kindness. Cultivating mindfulness results in many benefits for mental and physical health, well-being, and happiness.
