What is Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness occurs when we wake up from the automatic pilot of our habitual mind. We notice where our attention is in any given moment and decide whether keeping it there serves us.  Intentionally we observe our present moment experience more objectively, with interest, receptivity, and curiosity.  From here we find the space to respond to whatever life throws at us, rather than react mindlessly from our conditioned habits and assumptions.  With practice, Mindfulness helps us to truly live our life, rather than be lived by it.”

Audrey Walzer

Who Can Practice Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is for everyone, from all walks of life, young or old.  Mindfulness is not a religion – anyone, with any belief system, can benefit.  Mindfulness research in the United States and across the globe has scientifically correlated mindfulness to stress reduction.

The common experience of people who think “I really should meditate” is to feel frustrated and unsuccessful when they try it. “I tried meditation once, and I just couldn’t clear my mind.” This can make you feel like there is something wrong with you, that everyone else “gets it”, but you don’t. However, this is because the underlying assumption is incorrect: Meditation is not a magic mind-clearing trick.

Mindfulness Meditation gives us tools to work with the mind wandering, the thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations that naturally arise for everyone when we finally take time out of the frantic rush of our lives to be present to ourselves and our experience right now. When we apply the tools of Mindfulness on a regular basis — when we actually practice, as opposed to reading a Facebook article about it, we become more emotionally resilient and aware, so even in the face of difficulties we feel a sense of deep inner calm, both in formal meditation practice, and in our lives all day long. This sense of deep equanimity and joy at being alive, within the inevitable ups and downs of our humanness, is truly the gift of Mindfulness Meditation.
