What is Mindfulness?

In simple terms Mindfulness is about paying more attention to the present moment. It's about knowing what is going on both inside our own bodies and our minds and in the world around us, moment by moment.

Have you ever noticed that when you are doing quite familiar and repetitive tasks, like driving your car, or doing house-work, that your mind is often miles away thinking about something else? You may be fantasising about going on a holiday, worrying about some upcoming event, or thinking about any number of other things. In all of these cases you are not focusing on your current experience, and you are not really in touch with the "here and now". This way of being is often called "automatic pilot". This can be quite harmless, such as daydreaming about the upcoming holiday. Other thought habits are more harmful, for example, constantly ruminating over financial worries or replaying difficult conversations or events that have happened.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and co-founder of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), defines Mindfulness as: "Paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally."​


How can Mindfulness help?

Based on published studies, Mindfulness has been found to be effective in reducing levels of stress, increasing resilience and emotional intelligence. There is evidence to show it can help with greater emotional and mental wellbeing, increased happiness levels and better relationships. It may also enhance communication skills and increase our capacity to hold and manipulate information.

Organisations that have benefitted from Mindfulness training

As well as its clearly documented benefits in clinical practice, Mindfulness is currently being taught in the UK Parliament, European Parliaments, Health Service, prisons, schools, in Harvard University leadership courses and to CEO's and corporate leaders in large organisations such as Google and London Transport.
