What is mindfulness

Mindfulness meditation has its origins in Vipassana, one of the oldest Eastern meditation techniques, often attributed to Buddha himself.
Vipassana can be translated as “insight” or “clear seeing.” In the Netherlands therefore also known as “insight meditation”.

4 Aspects of mindfulness meditation:

Attention the way to keep ourselves in the here and now.

Awareness develops a presence that is light, unencumbered, sensitive and clear and that creates an inner environment that is intuitive and calm.

Insight arises from direct and immediate perception of our inner and outer world. It offers the opportunity to walk new paths in our lives and is part of the fabric of deepening wisdom.

Compassion focuses our friendly, non-judgmental attention on ourselves and then extend it to everything that lives.

Exercises:

Exercises that you could do to improve or increase your concentration.

A breathmeditation offers a stable, safe place where you can always take refuge. Regardless of your mood, your thoughts, emotions and sensations. Your breath is always there for you as a loyal friend. Every time you are overwhelmed by intense emotions, you shift your attention to your breathing. The QLB meditation teaches you how to do this.

Sittingmeditation is coming home to yourself by focusing your attention and care entirely on yourself. As peaceful and robust as the Buddha statue on the altar is, you can experience peace and firmness as well. You sit upright with dignity, always returning to your breathing. See also our QLB meditation with free booklet “Meditation Secrets”.

Walkingmeditation you can practice anywhere, anytime, wherever you are. Walking meditation mainly means that you walk consciously, not to get anywhere. In freedom and stability, no longer rushed. You are present in every step. You can possibly breathe in a rhythm while you walk in harmony with your steps.
