What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a simple yet powerful practice of paying attention to our thoughts, emotions and body's sensations in a non-judgmental manner. Observing your thoughts without criticism, teaches you how to be more compassionate with yourself. Being more compassionate helps you to free yourself from the gravitational pull of anxiety, stress, depression and unhappiness.
We can learn to respond with greater wisdom and flexibility to difficult emotions and experiences, and learn to live with greater happiness and vitality.
