The American Jon Kabat-Zinn developed an effective method for reducing stress. He called it ‘mindfulness’. He based his method on Zen and yoga practices, and on Buddhist meditation techniques. Mindfulness means focusing our attention on the here and now, in a non-judgemental way.
The mindfulness sessions are short; they will only last up to 30 minutes. The sessions consist of meditation and attention exercises. You will learn to be present in the here and now, to create moments of stillness and peace in your life, to be less distracted by your thoughts and be more aware of bodily sensations, to reduce stress and anxiety, and to promote an open and gentle attitude.
