Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Training Online
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a basic human quality, a way of learning to pay attention to whatever is happening in your life that allows you a greater sense of connection to your life inwardly and outwardly. MBSR teaches "mindfulness," which is a focus only on things happening in the present moment. Through practicing Mindfulness you get to know yourself better. You become more aware of your thoughts, emotions and bodily feelings enabling you to respond more effectively to a challenging situation through making conscious choices instead of playing out automatic reactions and patterns that are not helpful and are rather disruptive to your well-being and the relationship with others.
Mindfulness combines modern psychological insights with ancient and proven forms of meditation and yoga. Mindfulness is not tied to a specific religious context, but can be used in an easily applicable, practical way. Mindfulness is trained with the help of meditation techniques that focus on, for example, the breath or our bodily awareness. Many people who have participated in the training are saying they can make better use of their ability to deal with life's events through strength and wisdom.
