Mindfulness Based Meditation

Mindfulness based practices assist us in attending to present experience so that we can live more fully and deal with life's challenges more skillfully. Derived from Vipassana and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy these meditations teach us to enhance our focus and concentration using the body as an anchor for experience. We learn to be more open and receptive to experience, helping us to deal with stressful states using a different mode of mind. We are then less likely to be carried off by reactive negative emotions. This involves being with experience as it is, without necessarily judging, or trying to fix or change anything. By not working to make our mood or experience different, sometimes possibilities open up to us and we are able to see how all things come and go, loosening our attachments. Mindfulness is available to you anywhere and at any time.
