What is Mindfulness?
Go to nearly any self-help or psychology section in a bookstore these days and you’ll probably find books with mindfulness in the title. Below is a link for a handout I’ve written that provides a brief introduction to mindfulness. It contains information you might find useful if you are learning how to experience mindfulness in your life, including if you are beginning to practice guided meditations such as a body scan meditation.
Mindfulness is something we cultivate through our effort and intention. At the same time, it isn’t something we create; rather it’s a quality and a way of being that we already have. We simply need to intentionally re-connect to it.
