The Meanings of Mindfulness
Mindfulness refers to a state of being fully present in the present moment, with acceptance and without judgement. Mindfulness is ubiquitous – a natural part of being human – that has been cultivated and practiced for over 2600 years in various traditions around the world. Scientific studies have demonstrated mindfulness practice to benefit a variety of psychological and physical conditions, as well as to have measurable positive effects on the brain. Due to its benefits, mindfulness is increasingly being integrated into Education, Medicine, and the Workplace.
