The Attitudinal Foundations of Mindfulness [Info]
William James Davies, DCMT
These attitudes are the foundations of Mindfulness, they both reflect the way that practice is approached, and also what attitudes are cultivated by it. Qualified mindfulness teachers are assessed on their embodiment of the attitudinal foundations, and there’s a good reason for this; this quality of embodiment has been shown to make a significant difference to the success of courses such as Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. This important ingredient is difficult to incorporate into situations without any face-to-face interaction, so this recording is being offered as a way of helping Aura subscribers to consider the significance of attitudes such as acceptance, non-striving, non-judging, letting be, beginner’s mind, patience, trust, kindness and compassion, and how they relate to mindfulness.
