What is Mindfulness?
The practice of Mindfulness is cultivated and enhanced through Meditation – of which there are numerous forms. Research shows that regularly practicing mindfulness contributes to personal health, happiness, resiliency and effectiveness. When we are ‘present’ and in this moment (i.e. Mindful), we can respond and deal with whatever is happening; instead of reacting or worrying about what has happened or might happen.
What is Meditation?
Meditation is an experience or a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent. The goal of meditation is to go beyond the mind and experience our essential nature—which is described as peace, happiness, and bliss. During meditation there is an opportunity to detach from everyday concerns, worries and stresses, to give ourselves time to stop, breathe, regroup and recharge. When we regularly meditate we feel calmer, more at ease, have peace of mind and find greater inner balance. More about the practice of meditation here
