Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally in the service of self-understanding and wisdom. John Kabat-Zinn
The skill of mindfulness can be strengthened and honed with practice just as any skill can. As our awareness of our own thoughts, feelings, and physical states increase, our understanding of ourselves increases.
