Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally to moment by moment experiences. When we pay attention on purpose, we become less prone to habitual patterns of reacting and better able to respond to life stressors with greater ease and clarity.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a mind-body practice developed in the late 1970's by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD at the University of Massachusetts. Rooted in Buddhist traditions, MBSR is a westernized meditation program aimed at helping individuals decrease stress, manage emotional and physical ailments, and enhance coping skills and behaviors. Typically offered as a complement to medical and psychological interventions, mindfulness meditation can yield the following results:

  • decrease in stress, anxiety or worry
  • management of medical conditions (chronic pain, high blood pressure & heart disease)
  • improved focus & attention
  • enhanced interpersonal relationships
  • reduced impulsive and reactive tendencies
  • mood regulation
  • cultivation of empathy & compassion
