WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

Mindfulness is paying attention to your experience in the present moment in a open and non-judgmental way.

Mindfulness training involves developing greater awareness of your day-to-day experience and relating to it in a way that is more constructive, intentional and nourishing.
