Mindfulness has a long history of developing and embodying wellbeing and insight. Which can be defined as a clear seeing or wisdom, a finding out of who we really are.
Meditation and Mindfulness practice gradually seeps into a mindful approach to our whole day. We are able to bring our attention back to the present moment where our power lies.
Meditation consists of two broad types, concentration and insight. Concentration helps us to train the mind. For most people the first skill to develop in meditation is to train the mind to stay where we put it. It is hard to achieve anything in life without focus. As we learn to pay attention more fully, disturbance subsides and we relax.
insight has the side effect of a tendency to be happier and more peaceful. Happiness releases you from the self. Through the releasing and letting go we discover afresh what was always there. The joy of this makes us want to share and help others.
