"When you sit upright but relaxed in the posture of meditation, your heart is naked. Your entire being is exposed--to yourself, first of all, but to others as well. So, through the practice of sitting still and following your breath as it goes out and dissolves, you are connecting with you heart."
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention on purpose with a non-judgemental, gentle, awareness. It involves giving attention to a particular object.
Mindfulness can be a formal practice or a practice utilized in every day life for re-calibration. It is beneficial in states of overwhelm, moments of anxiety, worry or simply existing in modern society.
Pure Natural Meditation™ offers classes in mindfulness as well as programs in mindfulness training . . . primary school students through CEOs. An understanding of mindfulness brings you into a present moment awareness and trains you to be aware of when you are focusing on the future or the past and not existing in the present moment, which is all that truly exists.
As Thich Nhat Hanh is quoted as saying:
"The past is gone, the future is not here. If we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life."
