Mindfulness is a term that is used in many different ways these days. Traditionally in Buddhist teachings it is a quality of awareness that is making us present in this very moment. It is capacity to be more awake and with everything that arises. It's a more balanced and attuned relationship with something, someone, or some internal or external process. It gives us more space and openness to react to ever changing life from the place of calm, without getting involved in our stories.
Through a steady Mindfulness practice we can become a gentle and compassionate warrior who can transform their fears and strong emotions into a source of wisdom.
