Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to what is unfolding in the present moment in the mind, body and emotions. We all have the capacity to be mindful, and there is much evidence to support its’ benefits.
Mindfulness is a non-sectarian, non-denominational practice that develops concentration, insight and compassion. Research has shown the effectiveness of meditation in improving well-being and health. Balancing the nervous system, improving the immune system, memory and mood are some of the proven benefits of meditation.
