Mindfulness is a modern practice with roots in a number of ancient traditions. To be mindful is to be intentionally aware of the present moment, allowing whatever arises to come and go without judgement.
When we consciously bring our awareness to our present moment, we learn to intimately connect with the richness of our daily life, loosen destructive thought patterns, and increase our levels of personal wellbeing.
