Mindfulness Therapy

Mindfulness refers to being completely in touch with and aware of the present moment, as well as taking a non-evaluative and non-judgmental approach to your inner experience. For example, a mindful approach to one’s inner experience is simply viewing “thoughts as thoughts” as opposed to evaluating certain thoughts as positive or negative. Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.
