Mindfulness is a way of being a basic human quality of awareness that is cultivated by learning to pay wise attention to whatever is happening in our lives. People who participate in a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, learn through their own experience, how to take better care of themselves, by understanding the interplay of mind and body, allowing for greater access to inner resources for coping, growing and healing.
