What is Mindfulness?

ABC of Mindfulness

  • Mindfulness is a practice that is found in various spiritual traditions, especially Buddhism in which it’s a meditation practice known as ‘Sati.’

  • In the secular world, it was first applied in behavioral medicine in the 1970s in the form of an 8-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program for stress and chronic pain management by Professor Dr. Jon. Kabat-Zinn at University of Massachusetts Medical Centre, United States.

  • Since then, various mindfulness-based programs have mushroomed and these have been successfully applied in the secular world, e.g. healthcare, psychotherapy, education, parenting, coaching, and business. 

  • Supported by local scientific research and experience, MINDFULGym is the leading mindfulness-based program in Malaysia.
