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.
