Mindfulness meditation is fast becoming a mainstream, recommended approach for improved health, well-being and performance in the Western world. It has applications for general self-development, specific clinical concerns and/or spiritual growth. Meditation cultivates in us the ability to free ourselves from our habitual responses to think, feel and act with a new sense of clarity and purpose in both every day and major moments of life.
