Mindfulness

Mindfulness (n.)

/ˈmīn(d)-fəl-nəs/ We define mindfulness as inner education. When we practice mindfulness, we become students of our present moment experience. Mindfulness supports us in:

  • Understanding and training our attention.
  • Noticing our thoughts, emotions, and feelings with more clarity and learning to relate to them in a healthier way.
  • Discerning the patterns of our mind and intentionally cultivating qualities and habits that are more aligned with our values.
  • Learning how to better connect and empathize with others.
  • Developing more awareness of our relationship with our environment.
