"Paying attention, in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally " is how Jon Kabat-Zinn defines it
We cannot choose what happens to us but we can choose what to do with it. We can guide the attention and orient it and avoid to be prey to thoughts, sensations and emotions.
Intention becomes fundamental, as the desire to fully stay in the here and now, experiencing the uniqueness of the present moment.
Not judgingmentally means noticing that we are constantly in judgment: I like/dislike. We can at least try not to judge the judgment.
Instant by instant means opening up to what emerges in the flow of life, to the unfolding of moments, without falling into the trap of "pre-" that has roots in the past and "pro-" that goes into the future: prejudices, preconceptions, concerns, but also projections, projects, self-fulfilling prophecies.
Mindfulness is a set of awareness practices that activate resources already present in us.
More than looking for something that is wrong and therefore to be changed, it starts from what is already working in us and trains it. We learn to bring out and develop our best assets.
Mindfulness is a daily practice that helps us live better. Gradually, with practice, we learn to let go of unhealthy attitudes and behaviours and to cultivate those that are good for us, developing greater wisdom and compassion towards ourselves and others.
Mindfulness is based on personal experience.
It is a unique path in which the practitioner is at the same time the laboratory, the scientist, the results and the experiment itself.
This involves an orthogonal rotation of the consciousness that observes itself and explores what happens with curiosity, kindness and patience.
Mindfulness practice can help us reduce stress by training us to be present, moment to moment, encountering what is here and now.
By exploring sensations, emotions and thoughts with presence, we learn to get out of automatic and reactive patterns and to open ourselves to creative and transformative responses.
An experience suitable for everyone, without limits of age and physical condition.
Mindfulness is not relaxation, induction of altered states of consciousness, trance, it is not a religion or a new age practice, it is not a way to banish thoughts, it is not an anaesthetic from the pains of the world.
“Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mistery,
today is a gift: that's the reason why is called present"
