Mindfulness is a practice – a practice to stay present from moment to moment. We learn to be aware of our thoughts, feelings, sensations and our environment without adding judgement and interpretation. It is a practice of paying attention and focusing using all our senses. It is a practice of being, instead of doing. Instead of dwelling in the past or future, we notice the sensations of being alive in our body.
There are many different ways of practising mindfulness in our day to day living. Some examples of mindfulness practice during a body-based healing session can include breath work, guided visualisation and body scan.
