Today mindfulness meditation and other mindfulness-based approaches are integrated in mainstream medicine and healthcare through patient care, research, academic medical and professional education. It is a way of learning to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life, a way of taking charge of your life, a way of doing something for yourself that no one else can do for you — consciously and systematically working with your own stress and the challenges and demands of everyday life.
«Fortunately, mindfulness is not something that you have to get or acquire. It is already within you — a deep internal resource available and patiently waiting to be released and used in the service of learning, growing, and healing.» (Center for Mindfullness, 2013)
Have you ever thought about what factors could help you to perceive your reality and what controls your perception?
The aim of this subject is to provide you with possibilities for actively dealing with your personal challenges. If you know how you function, then you can use this knowledge to actively mould and shape your own personal reality. A sequence of subtle and cogent exercises, which illuminate specific aspects of our consciousness, provide you with the possibility, over the course of the day, of gaining an impression of your own mental thought processes and patterns. The knowledge you thus gain can then be smoothly integrated in your everyday life and can aid in your own personal development.
