How Mindfulness Training Helps

"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."  Viktor Frankl

Developing the ability to pay deliberate attention to our experiences from moment to moment allows us to recognize and accept what is going on in our mind and body. The advantages of observing our thoughts, feelings and sensations without judgement may not seem immediately self-evident, but integrating this awareness can have beneficial results.
