Mindfulness & awareness of the present moment with acceptance is a deceptively simple way of relating to experience that has been practiced for over 2,500 years to alleviate human suffering. Recently, mental health professionals are enthusiastically discovering that mindfulness holds great promise for their own personal development and as a way to enhance therapeutic relationships. It is also the central ingredient in a great number of new empirically validated treatments, and is proving to be a remarkably powerful technique to augment virtually every form of psychotherapy.
