What is mindfulness?
‘Being aware of present moment experience, with curiosity’ – Lydia Vorona
‘A gateway into the full dimensionality of being human’ – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Paying attention to the moments of our life with open-hearted curiosity is an extraordinary way to live. This approach we call ‘mindfulness’ offers life-enhancing benefits for everyone, whether you are dealing with stress, anxiety, illness or simply wishing to gain more balance and a sense of connection in your life and relationships.
Mindfulness is a natural state of being, focused and clear, a deep internal resource already available that we can harness – and the results can be life-changing.
