Description

What Is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is an ancient Buddhist practice which has profound relevance for our present-day lives.This relevance has nothing to do with Buddhism peruse or with becoming a Buddhist, but it has everything to do with waking up and living in harmony with oneself and with the world. It has to do with examining who we are, with questioning our view of the world and our place in it, and with cultivating some appreciation for the fullness of each moment we are alive. Most of all, it has to do with being in touch.
