From the Author’s desk…
Mindfulness has enjoyed a tremendous surge in popularity in the past decade. I am a big advocate of mindfulness and I believe that virtually every client and the therapist would benefit from being more mindful. Among its tremendous benefits are self-control, objectivity and have flexibility, equanimity, improves concentration, mental clarity, objectivity, emotional intelligence and the ability to relate to others and with oneself with kindness, acceptance and self-compassion.
Mindfulness has been used to refer to a psychological state of awareness practices that promote awareness. It is a moment to moment awareness of ones experience without judgement. In this sense, mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, but mindfulness meditation is not equivalent or synonyms with them.
