In the Moment: Mindfulness for Changing Times:
Mindfulness is the practice of being aware and attentive in the present moment, while adopting a non-judgmental attitude to experiences that occur. The practice, derived from Buddhist teachings more than 2,500 years old, have been adapted for secular application. Clinically, mindfulness can help address health issues such as depression and pain.

With its surging popularity, Dr Heather Kempton discusses mindfulness in terms of original teachings, that is, to free oneself from suffering by profoundly appreciating that everything is impermanent and subject to change. We are often reminded that we live in changing times – but the times have always been changing, and mindfulness can help see us through.
