Mindfulness and Meditation
The term "mindfulness" simply means being aware of what's happening in the present moment, without trying to change anything. Concentration, on the other hand, is the practice of paying attention to one thing, for a certain amount of time, with only one single focus: the breath. These two processes work together in meditation. As we "meditate" we aim to notice our thought process, while bringing attention back to the breath. As we do, we are invited to be mindfully aware of changes in our focus, thoughts, or feelings, without judgement. When practicing mindfulness, we become the "witness" to what is happening, internally (mentally and emotionally) and/or externally in our world.
