What is Mindfulness ?


Mindfulness is an attentiveness to the present moment, in the here and now. It’s an openness to reality just as it is, free of judgement. This natural state, inherent in human nature, isn’t exclusive to any particular tradition. In this way, it is universal.

Mindfulness is developed by progressively expanding the field of awareness until fully present to the sensory experience of each moment: welcoming, recognising and accepting it – whether it be pleasant, unpleasant or neutral.

After the initial experience, the practice involves making it a part of daily life, in any situation and each moment.

Mindfulness should not be misunderstood as the  result of mental concentration or the accumulation of intellectual concepts.

The 3 Dimensions of Mindfulness

The experience of mindfulness can be described as the following three essential qualities:

  • Attention
  • Openness
  • Empathy

These qualities are also innate, and it’s not so much as case of fabricating them, but rather revealing them.
