What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness can be to be said to be the ability to pay attention to present moment experience with open curiosity and a willingness to be with what is. In other words, it is becoming fully awake in our own lives.

Mindfulness is non‐dependent on any belief system or ideology and its benefits are therefore accessible to anyone.
