What is Mindfulness? It is a practice that can strengthen the mind.
Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the now, this moment. It gives us observable space between our soul and anything flowing through the mind and body, in which can alleviate suffering. Mindfulness gives us the ability to observe the mind and body in a non-judgmental and caring way so a person does not identify with their suffering. We strengthen the mind to endure and create space between our true self and our experience.
For those who are spiritual, we can intertwine this practice with prayer or scripture. Kathy Blumentritt has been practicing for over 10 years in both professional and spiritual settings.
