What is Mindfulness?  
 

Mindfulness is a state of heart and mind, in which we are kindly aware of our experience as it is unfurling, here, now. (There are other mind-states that we inhabit - for example the “autopilot”, when we find ourselves doing things without awareness, or the state of rumination, when we are sucked into the past through our thoughts and thought patterns.)

Here’s another way of putting it. Mindfulness is ……

 
The awareness that arises from …
paying attention …
in a particular way …
in the present moment …
non-judgementally …
— Jon Kabat-Zinn
