What is mindfulness?

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and

non judgmentally.”  Jon Kabat-Zinn’s definition of mindfulness.

Being mindful is not easy as most of us live our lives in the past or the future.

A typical example of not being mindful is: you are in a car, you travel from A to B and don’t remember the journey.

Mindfulness can be taught on a one to one basis or in groups.
