So what’s the hype all about?
Mindfulness can be defined as the ability to be aware of our moment to moment experience, whether pleasant or unpleasant, with acceptance. It is a practice that can help people connect with the present moment in a more compassionate way. When working with clients, mindfulness skills, when practiced formally and informally, can be useful on a day to day basis - from engaging in daily activities in a rich way to being able to work through more difficult life experiences. It is a skill that needs to be practiced consistently in order to experience the benefits - it is a lifelong practice that can help reconnect you to your true, innate self.
