Mindfulness is a basic human quality, a way of learning to pay wise attention to whatever is happening in the present moment.
Our minds often get carried away with all kinds of thought associations in which dwelling on the past and projecting into the future get all mixed up. Distracted and confused, we become withdrawn from immediate reality and fall prey to reactive emotions and automatic behavior.
When we live with greater attention and presence, we respond more effectively to any given situation – be it positive, negative or neutral – in a way that benefits our general well-being.
Recently this approach entered into the mainstream culture. A Google search on “mindfulness” results in millions of hits, and mindfulness-based therapies are growing in popularity, with teachers and programs all around the globe.

- Understand your own interior world
