Mindful Living: A proven approach to a happier, more fulfilling life

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention to one’s moment by moment experience just as it is, without judging or controlling it.  Brain scan studies and peer reviewed research have shown that practicing mindful meditation for as little as 8 weeks, 20 minutes per day, leads to increased attention and concentration, greater compassion, awareness and integration of ones thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations, and increased capacity to respond to the interpersonal challenges we all face in our personal, family and professional lives. Over twenty five years of research has shown the dramatic impact mindfulness-based therapy and stress-management have had on overcoming anxiety, panic, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD, ADD, and chronic physical pain.  Mindfulness has been incorporated with equally promising results into our education curriculum, teacher training, psychotherapy, physician, and nurse training.  Even the LA Lakers have their own mindfulness coach.
