'The awareness that unfolds as we pay attention, on purpose in the present moment"
Mindfulness is not a special state you achieve through a trick or technique. It's a way of being. There are tremendous benefits that arise from mindfulness practice,
but it works precisely because we don't try to attain benefit. Instead we befriend ourselves as we are. We learn to drop in on ourselves, visit and hang out in awareness.
"It is from the awareness born out of mindfulness that we
have the chance to recognize and respond more proactively and effectively to the challenges and demands of everyday life"
Live in the moment; notice what's happening; make choices in how you respond to your experience, rather
than being driven by habitual reaction.
