Introducing Mindfulness – A Practical Guide

What does it mean to be a human being? The mindful answer puts the emphasis on the word ‘being’. We are human beings, but we have forgotten how to be.

Mindfulness creates space for ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’
If you allow time for being, it will help your doing to be more productive

Mindfulness is about teaching yourself to be more:

Aware – of your body, your mind and the environment
Present – in this moment; right here, right now
Focused – more able to make choices about where you place your attention
Embodied – being in your body; bringing your mind and your body into synch
Accepting – of yourself and other people.

This is not the kind of acceptance we’re talking about. Acceptance is seeing clearly how things are, and not struggling with that basic reality. It doesn’t mean that we can’t take action against injustice or wrongdoing in the world. Once we have seen clearly and accepted what is here, then if there are things we can helpfully change, we can take action. In the words of the famous
