Learning Mindfulness






Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Learning mindfulness skills has proven to be beneficial for people suffering from mental wellbeing problems, chronic pain, sleeplessness, anxiety and depression.
