What Mindfulness is
Mindfulness meditation, traditionally a Buddhist practice is becoming very popular in the West. It is now being taught is the NHS, schools and in many places of work as a very effective way to well-being, good health and happiness.
It is a way of paying attention and tuning into yourself, other people and your environment in the present moment. Often our attention jumps around from one thing to another like an untrained puppy. Mindfulness can be practised by anyone whatever their cultural background.
I teach mindfulness in a secular way.
