MINDFULNESS is a non-reactive, confident and kind way of being alert and open to an experience as it happens. It is an ancient, powerful technique that reduces stress, promotes well-being and cultivates brave-hearted living. Validated by over 30 years of research, mindfulness develops a kind awareness of your thoughts, emotions and the body allowing you to be more choiceful and open to the beauty of the present moment.
