Mindfulness Therapy & Meditation

We’ve all heard of Mindfulness – most of us would describe it as ‘being in the moment’.  But what does that mean, and why would that be helpful with emotional issues?

Yes, as Jon Kabat-Zinn described it, it is indeed "Bringing one’s complete attention to the present experience on a moment-to-moment basis”.  But, moreover, it brings the attention to the present moment non-judgementally – without the typical struggle that it should be another way, or the tendency for our minds to ‘live in the future’.  As one brings their awareness to the present moment, feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations are calmly observed, acknowledged accepted.  And that’s how peace begins.

As one becomes non-judgementally aware of thoughts, observing the habits of one's thoughts, emotions, and other present-moment experiences without judging or reacting to them, one gradually develops the ability to reduce harmful ruminations, anxiety filled habit-thoughts, and unhelpful reactions.

Living in the present

There is a saying attributed to Lao Tzu “If you’re depressed you’re living in the past, if you’re anxious you’re living in the future, if you are at peace you are living in the present.”

Research in many fields and for many different groups bears this out – Mindfulness has been shown to enhance peace, self-acceptance, general and emotional well-being, and a greater sense of being connected to yourself, your world and your loved ones.

Through neuro-imaging techniques, we now know that Mindfulness physically changes the brain to foster not only better attentional regulation (such as one would have when meditating), but also enhanced emotional regulation.  

      Mindfulness can:

  • help counteract stress  

  • reduce negative thinking

  • decrease incessant worry and ruminations

  • alleviate anxiety

  • improve depression and sadness

  • enhance self-acceptance

  • increase compassion for self and others

  •  lessen the discomfort of pain

  • help overcome bad habits

  • increase equanimity and patience expand peace.
