Mindfulness is the awareness that arises by intentionally paying attention to the present moment without judgment. Practicing Mindfulness can improve mental, physical, and emotional health and help develop a greater sense of well-being, joy, and contentment. Over three decades of scientific research on Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction show that developing mindfulness skills can profoundly affect your ability to reduce physical and psychological pain and increase your over-all sense of well-being, including documented results such as: reduction of psychological suffering (anxiety, depression, anger and irritability, etc.); greater ability to cope with medical conditions and chronic pain; greater emotional resilience and ability to manage stress; increased ability to sleep; greater sense of self-worth and self-compassion; and renewed sense of balance and control.
Themes: Self-compassion practices; the nature of the brain; working with difficult emotions; cultivating positive emotions; working with difficult thoughts; the nature of stress; what stress does to the body; mindful communication techniques (responding vs. reacting).
