Mindfulness meditation originates from Buddhist teachings. It has become a particularly popular meditation technique in the West. When practising Mindfulness meditation you observe your thoughts as they pass through your mind. You don’t judge the thoughts or become involved with them. You simply observe and then allow them to pass through your mind, without attachment. This practise allows you to remain more fully in the moment. Combining concentration with awareness, you may find it helpful to focus on an object or your breath while you observe any bodily sensations, thoughts, or feelings. Mindfulness Meditation assists a person in developing a deeper sense of compassion, for self and for others. This type of meditation is good for people who don’t have a teacher to guide them, as it can be easily practiced alone.
