“When we are in touch with our true mind,
the source of understanding and compassion will spring out."
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when you bring open-hearted, non-judgmental awareness to your experience.  Mindfulness practice includes mindfulness meditation, also known as insight or vipassana meditation, and the cultivation of open-hearted awareness of one's present-moment experience. The principles of mindfulness are fundamental to many traditional meditative practices and are non-sectarian in nature.

The practice of mindfulness is beneficial for people experiencing anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and physical symptoms related to stress or disease. Through mindfulness we can see clearly, accept, and gain freedom from the suffering brought on by our automatic thoughts and assumptions. We can experience the joy of being fully present in our lives, learn from difficult times, and be open to compassion for ourselves and others.
