Inhale. Exhale. Repeat. Based in Eastern philosophy from over 2600 years ago, mindfulness practice is the intentional, present moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, sensations, and surroundings without judgment. Through the use of a bodily anchor, such as your breath, you can slow down and awaken to the life that is unfolding in the here and now.
