New knowledge and skills acquired in January 2016. Mindfulness teaches an attitude of non-judgment, acceptance, compassion and kindness towards yourself, of the situation and towards others. This attitude is the foundation of becoming more familiar with what we experience, so that we are looser from our automatic reaction patterns and impulses. You could say that with Mindfulness you are practiced in being. This is a technique that works well in people with chronic pain and has a positive influence on physical and mental health.
