According to Professor Mark Williams, Oxford University, Mindfulness is a translation of a word that simply means awareness. It’s a direct, intuitive knowing of what you are doing while you are doing it. It’s knowing what’s going on inside your mind and body, and what’s going on in the outside world as well.
– Pays attention to thoughts, feelings and body sensations to become directly aware of them, and better able to manage them
– Has roots in Meditation practices and also draws on recent scientific advances
– Is of potential value to to everybody to help find peace in a frantic world
Neuroscientific studies find:
– Changes in those area of the brain associated with decision-making, attention and empathy in people who regularly practice Mindfulness Meditation
– That Meditation increases the area of the brain linked to regulating emotion, and that it improves people’s attention, job performance, productivity and satisfaction
– That Meditation increases blood flow, reduces blood pressure, and protects people at risk of developing hypertension: it also reduces the risk and severity of cardiovascular disease, and the risk of dying from it
