Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation is a research-based form of meditation derived from a 2,500 year old Eastern practice. It is a form of meditation designed to develop the reflective mode of attention to our immediate inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion.

“Mindfulness is non-judgmental, open-hearted, friendly, and inviting of whatever arises in awareness. It is cultivated by paying attention on purpose, deeply, and without judgment to whatever arises in the present moment, either inside or outside of us. By intentionally practicing mindfulness, deliberately paying more careful moment-to-moment attention, individuals can live more fully and less on ‘automatic pilot,’ thus, being more present for their own lives.” From The University of California Center for Mindfulness. 

While Mindfulness Meditation will not eliminate life’s pressures or physical pain, it can help us recognize and step away from habitual automatic stress reactions to everyday events; and learn to respond to them in a calm manner with ease.
