“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: On purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally.”
Founder of the Stress Clinic in Massachusetts.
Mindfulness has its origins in Zen Buddhism and is independent of ideology, religion and value systems. The treatment trains an approach that is necessary for the present moment. Mindfulness requires us to concentrate and pay attention to our thoughts, feelings and reactions without wanting to change them. By accepting ourselves fully in the moment, we develop the ability to manage our lives towards a greater degree of freedom.
Mindfulness uses various techniques and models to train the conscious presence, including training to achieve the necessary basic attitude, a model with which to understand the value of and develop “moment to moment mindfulness” in stressful situations, breathing exercises, various forms of meditation, a variety of yoga techniques and varying degrees of inquiry.
Mindfulness is used to treat various chronic conditions, chronic pain, stress and exhaustion symptoms, burn-out and different life crisis scenarios.

Deeper than me

From inside of me." Yunus Emre

All the Way Home
When the mind disappears, time disappears.
When time disappears, the World disappears.
When the world disappears, all form disappears.
But when everything disappears, you are still there -
formless, timeless, thoughtless.
Your nature is stillness, peace, and unconditional freedom.
Close your eyes and go all the way home and you´ll
find this out for yourself.
