Mindfulness is a practice that comes from a variety of contemplative traditions throughout history. It is a way of paying attention to our thoughts, feelings, body sensations and environment moment to moment with a curious, kind nonjudgmental attention. This way of being allows the body’s natural healing mechanisms to function fully, establishing better health, well-being, balance and calmness. As we develop mindful awareness and adopt a compassionate present moment way of observing the contents of our mind, we come to see what beliefs promote skillful interactions and which beliefs cause stressful ones.
