"The awareness that arises from paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally" (Kabat-Zinn, in Purser, 2015)."
Mindfulness works to cultivate self-awareness, being in the present moment, acceptance, and ways to help calm difficult emotions. Mindfulness and meditation are often considered the same, and while meditations can be a part of mindfulness, they are not synonymous.
Mindfulness is a state of wellbeing that is gained through practice and helps guide one to become more in touch with their true selves, as well as accepting of emotions or thoughts that may arise.
Mindfulness teaches that as a society, we often get swept up in our feelings or ideas, but that the ability to see each of these things as impermanent and judge them less gives each of us a freer life and more positive sense of self.
We offer effective therapy because we realize and acknowledge that mindfulness in Boulder, Colorado can only be achieved by concentrating one's awareness on the current moment, while calmly recognizing and accepting one's feelings, opinions, and bodily atmospheres, used as a therapeutic mechanism.
