Introduction to Mindfulness
“Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives.
It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment.
We feel more alive.
We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.”- Jon Kabat-Zinn

Scientific research* into the effects of mindfulness suggests that it improves mental health (including decreasing stress, anxiety, depressive thinking and increasing self-compassion), and may have positive effects on emotions and the immune system. Furthermore, it appears to reduce inflammation and improve wellbeing in a range of physical ailments (including chronic pain, arthritis, cardiovascular issues, fibromyalgia).
