Mindfulness is a mind-body based training of being present to our life as it happens. It is about consciously cultivating awareness of our internal world (body, feelings and thoughts) and events, right here and now, with an interested, non-judgemental and compassionate approach. Being Mindful gives us the opportunity to respond to difficult events and situations in new ways rather than just following old, outdated patterns.
A vast body of world-wide research over the past 35 years has shown that Mindfulness practices promote health and well-being by helping to reduce stress, illness, fatigue and anxiety. In the UK, it has been recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence as a preferred method for use in the NHS.
