Joy. Beauty. Appreciation. Compassion.
Mindfulness is a style of attention which balances our thoughts, emotions and feelings with awareness of the world around us. This style of attention can be developed through training, and expressed through any kind of activity — making mindfulness a way of life, as well as a practice.
“When we look deeply into a flower, we see the elements that have come together to allow it to manifest. We can see clouds manifesting as rain. Without the rain, nothing can grow. When I touch the flower, I’m touching the cloud and touching the rain. This is not just poetry, it’s reality.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
Many people choose to practice mindfulness to reduce stress, improve concentration, communicate more effectively, be happier, or just to be more present for the opportunities that life is presenting. The trainings have been around for thousands of years, and thanks to recent advancements in neuroscience, research is showing just how practical and effective the trainings can be.
