This multi-faceted and evidence-based approach, in the Jon Kabat-Zinn lineage, has three distinct characteristics:
It is secular. This means it is not connected to any religion. It simply explores our innate human capacity of awareness, which is available to all.
It is non-pathologizing. The essence of the practice allows for conditions to arise, where the mind and the body can return to integration and wholeness. As Jon Kabat-Zinn says "as long as you are breathing , there is more right with you than there is wrong, no matter how ill or how hopeless you feel".
It is transformational. With enough commitment and willingness to practice, sustainable change and transformation become possible.
Mindfulness Based Programmes are best viewed as educational and invitational, rather than clinical interventions. They are not motivated to remove what is unwanted in your experience, but instead, they create an environment to encourage you to open up to all that you are, in the present moment, no matter what that is.
Mindfulness as an approach, emphasizes the importance of wholeness and well-being. It aims to assist you to remain in the present moment and from that perspective, deal with whatever is arising, more effectively and skillfully.
This approach fosters radical self-directed transformation, by initiating insight into your direct experience, as it unfolds.
Perhaps you can begin noticing, without judgement, where your attention is right now? How does this show up and influence your body and emotional state? I invite you to make a deliberate choice and decision about whether this is where you want your mind and attention to be? Perhaps your intention in this moment, is to begin exploring new possibilities?
