Mindfulness and Meditation
Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention from moment to moment in a non-judgmental way. This simple, but powerful practice opens the door to self-healing and insight. It can also provide options for coping with the stress of everyday life and the stress of illness.
In October of 2015, the British government published a promising report on mindfulness. Earlier in the year, Mindful magazine published an article about this initiative, UK on the Fast Track to Becoming a Mindful Nation.
