What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a methodology and a state of being. The practice of mindfulness helps people in all aspects of their lives, providing benefits for the mind, body and spirit.
Jon Kabat-Zinn, a leading authority on mindfulness in the United States, has defined it as “paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment.”
