What is Mindfulness Meditation?
The practice of mindfulness involves deliberately resting one’s attention on present moment sensations such as the breath. The practitioner assumes an awake yet relaxed posture in their body, and then places their attention on the breath. When one notices that the mind has drifted away from the object of meditation, attention is then again gently brought back to the object, in this case the breath. This practice, which is very simple, is also quite difficult, mostly because our minds are not trained to be present.
Instead we spend most of our waking hours in distraction and random, discursive thinking. Because we have never cultivated this ability of mind to simply be present, our ‘mindfulness muscle’ is weak, and we find we have little control over our thinking process. For thousands of years meditators from various traditions have known that by working with the simple technique of repeatedly bringing our attention back to the present moment, our ability to be fully present with our experience, both during formal meditation practice and in our everyday life, steadily increases. In recent decades extensive studies have confirmed this claim through the lens of scientific inquiry.
