The Bells of Mindfulness Mindfulness is the root of all the methods that tame the mind. First it focuses the mind. Then it eases the mind. Finally it is the luminous nature, beyond thoughts. ~Paul Rinpoche~ What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is the art of staying in the moment. Accepting what is. Because it is already here. Regaining focus, bringing peace and centredness. The practice of mindfulness through meditation defuses our negativity, aggression, and turbulent emotions.
