Mindfulness Meditation Course and Tribe
Mindfulness is the process of bringing one’s attention to the internal experiences occurring in the present moment, which can be developed through the practice of meditation and other training.
The term “mindfulness” is a translation of the Pali term sati, which is a key element of some Buddhist traditions. In Buddhism, mindfulness has been advocated as a way to spiritual enlightenment, the cessation of suffering and achievement of happiness. The recent popularity of mindfulness in the West is generally considered to have been initiated by the Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh and adapted by Jon Kabat-Zinn for the clinical purpose of stress reduction.
Large population-based research studies have indicated that the practice of mindfulness is strongly correlated with greater well-being and perceived health.
