What is mindfulness?

June 6th, 2017

Socrates purportedly stated, “The unexamined life is not worth living…” Since ancient times, and from “West” to “East,” people worldwide have affirmed the importance of reflecting and taking a closer look at things both externally, and from within.

So what is “mindfulness,” according to Buddhist Eastern thought?

An awareness and focus on the present moment, on the sensory aspects of exactly what is happening around us right here, right now – a simplicity or contentment perhaps with oneself.
