Mindfulness is about bringing an expansive awareness
to the present moment. By learning to focus, then opening ourselves to be receptive, we can gain greater awareness of ourselves, what is going on around us and in us.
By experiencing the world through a lens of kindness, towards ourselves and others, we can develop a more positive, accepting view of the world. We can develop a more conscious relationship with our body, thoughts and emotions; become better able to manage stress; and learn how to live happier and more fulfilling lives.
Mindfulness does not require a religious or spiritual practice. However, most people find that expanding their awareness can be complementary to their spiritual beliefs. While presentations to public groups and businesses about mindfulness can be secular, most of our work offers an integration of mindfulness with a spiritual understanding -- with the idea that there is a non-physical dimension of this physical world. Science is increasingly discovering that there is much more to life than what we experience with our physical senses.
