Why Mindfulness-based Therapy?
Over the past five decades, psychotherapists have been increasingly applying mindfulness-based interventions in the treatment of a variety of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and trauma. Moreover, researchers have been able to document growing evidence for the success of mindfulness-based treatments.
When we practice mindfulness, we practice the purposeful observation of physical, mental, emotional and environmental phenomena as they arise. Practiced correctly, we take a nonjudgmental stance towards our observations—accepting whatever arises in our consciousness. Being mindful and aware, during this present moment, can provide liberating insight into the causality of reality, which in turn may lead to an increased sense of freedom, ease, letting go, wisdom, compassion and ultimately mental and emotional liberation.
The concept of mindfulness practice can be understood as a universal human potential that can be cultivated through training. Thus, mindfulness is both a process and an outcome—a fundamental way of being that penetrates one’s moment-by-moment experience.
Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road,
not to reach a goal but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom,
life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple in itself an ecstasy.
― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
